HA! I won't give up my day job   I just felt like having a bit of fun!  


Love can turn to fools gold,
precious is the heart you hold.
Unless tended like a fragile flower,
a true love can wilt within an hour.
With no life force to a dying leaf,
it drowns in salty tears of grief,
There is no chance another day,

~*~  May the spirit of this season live in your heart all year through ~*~

Wow! This is a lot of fun! I tried my hand at the first challenge poem and loved it. And it's great to see how different mine is from everybody elses. Such wonderful writing I see! Here's mine.. late as always, LOL but I can't resist  

With light I run
Gift of saffron sun,
Shades of a dream.
Splintered thought.
Words in a stream,
Speak but say nought

Of golden morn
on a verdant lawn
Childish heart dies;
Long distasteful thorn,
A wonder in disguise.

What has gone unfound?
In word, music or sound?
Unworldly enchantment I crave.
Does magic abound?
Wonder must be ere grave.

Lost in our disguise,
Can we simply be;
A young gleam in our eyes
Cleansed of vanity.
Metamorphosis we undergo,
Painted wings our prize
Secrets we know,
Sweet earth yearned from skies.

"A hard, cold wisom is required for goodness to accomplish good. Goodness without wisdom always accomplishes evil" - Robert Heinlein

Shoot, pressed the wrong button, posted it as a new topic by mistake.

Can't do anything right tonight it seems.

Love all your poems
