Sitting in a place
Of warm solitude...
I write in my journal
Hoping no one will intrude.

I play some music
Maybe loud rock níroll...
Maybe sounds of nature
To soothe my soul.

I set down all my
Thoughts and poses...
Things of forget-me-nots
And wild roses.

I can look back to see
Where I have been...
To see where I am going
I just release my pen.

My thoughts run wild
Or down a charted course...
Dreams of childhood
Hopes for a horse.

The birth of my children
The breakup of marriage...
Slow dancing
Rides in a carriage.

When I am done
I will lock away this book...
Hoping no one finds it
No one takes a look.

My private
Thoughts and poses...
Forget-me-nots
And roses.

Wonderful, Wonderful, Wonderful!

I am a big journal keeper and you echo my very own thoughts.  You make me want to take my journal outside and just write forever.

Denise....Thank you.I am glad you enjoyed it.  


TA...yes journals make that happen...I have one beside my bed, another beside my favorite chair and one in my bag so that I can catch all those thoughts, whether waiting some place or on a picnic, anything! I am glad you like the poem.  


Butterflies...I am sorry you lost your journal.I understand your feelings.Must feel like an invasion, knowing someone else has it. Maybe if it wasn't sold too long ago, you could advert to try and get it back. I hope so. Thanks for your comments.

MagnoliaBlue~
Beautifully done.
I love journals.

I give my children one each Christmas
and they really seem to enjoy keeping
them up to date.  
One of my sons calls it his 'other room'.
He says it's where he can go to find himself.
On holidays they bring their journals for each other to write a page in.  

Thanks for sharing this.

Oh, this spoke directly to my heart. Journaling was my first attempt at "writing" only I just didn't realize how much I loved it and miss it. This was so in tune with my own thoughts and memories of a time spent refreshing myself, and letting the world go by. Thank you for posting it!

~I so enjoyed this poem of yours.  I too keep a journal,..one in my desk, one in my car for the random thoughts that need be entered at the drop of a dime. Hehe.  Loved this. Thank you for sharing it.
