Monday Afternoon Musing…

Perhaps if I were a different sort

I wouldn’t talk to my dogs or look for cohorts

Seeking out people of similar mind –

Or dissimilar mind, as long as they’re kind.


I’d contemplate the beauty of growing wisteria

And wonder far less about human mysteria

Why people behave as they are oft wont to do

In ways that spread more aches than the flu-est of flus.


I’d write with more deftness and amazing fluidity

That would guarantee greater financial liquidity

My ego would withstand all but the greatest of slights

Ergo my emotional baggage would be surprisingly light


Alas and alack and I might add anon

The conclusion to this is already foregone

At this point it is best to make peace with myself

With my heart sized enormous and the height of an elf..

  1. Well done. My poems always end up about dragons, and nothing rhymes with that. Except maybe “flagon” of wine. But that only works so many times. Nice piece

    1. about ‘braggin’? Flaggin’? Saggin’? Now how to pluralize that – I haven’t a clue..Thank you so much for stopping by! 🙂

  2. You’re a woman after my own heart with the wordplay and the rhymes, Mimi. I write children’s books on nature subjects, and they are all done in rhyme. It can be challenging at times, but it’s always a good mental exercise. Thx for sharing your gift–your verses make me smile. 🙂

    1. I am definitely going to check out your site – I’m sure your talents far exceed mine, but I am SO happy you like the post!

  3. You have the touch of a surgeon, and the flare of an artist. What magic you create in the elf mind of yours. We all love your musings.

    1. your praise is really high – my brain though is sized normally, it’s the 4’11” that’s a little elf like I think..:-$
