The funny pages

I’m always here,

listening in,

aware of the conversation

but hearing only silence.

Busy bodies hurry past,

dumbed down by their

complacent progress.

It’s as if I am a 

crossword puzzle,

the boxes fill up with letters

and I am left vacant,

awaiting definition.

No wonder people buy 

into their horoscopes –

it speaks for them.

Truth must be in the funnies

because no one is expecting it.

    Today I found a poet. 🙂

    • Thank you, Jeff! Well, I am a poet in progress or a piece of work, but a creative spirit nonetheless. As much as I enjoy writing about nature, I have a funny bone that I need to pick. The use of humor, contrasts and irony in my poetry is my way of decompressing events and emotions. I’m glad you enjoyed my poem and I look forward to reading more of your blog. Hope you are having a great day 🙂

    I always enjoy a good laugh to bring me to my senses. This life is filled by silly problems we put too much stock into, distracting our dreams and delaying our full creative potential. Start fresh today as an indelible page written in invisible ink – nobody can read you except yourself!
