A LITTER OF LANTURNES

 

 

 

A LITTER OF LANTURNES

 

 

Words

unsaid

by loved ones

often cause most

pain.

 

Thoughts

expressed

in great haste

may not reflect

truth.

 

The

cherished

memories

are the ones that

last.

    You writing a load of rubbish there - litter?! heehee. But no, fine writes again M, with enough syllables!

    • Michael Edwards

      Might write a herd or haikus, or a swarm of senryus, or a(beat this) murmeration of monostichs πŸ™‚

        *Gets out dictionary for these words, and staggers back in amazement*. I can't see any lanterns in this - I need some light! Ohh, I'm too un-cultured with poetic forms.
        And I'm a spoilsport - the nights are drawing in again after today! doh!

        Three meaningful Lanturnes Michael.

        A litter of truth adorns these lanturnes - - great read Michael.

        Truer light never shined.

        3 pretty little lanturnes as well
        I like the 3rd the best like a christmas tree
        Bravo again Michael

        Michael,
        Three written beauties and a beautiful flower garden pic!
        The lanturnes are all relatable! The one that stings for me is the first one!

          Thought-provoking as always Michael. Like the first one best. So true. Although I'm not sure I agree with the second, I've always felt the opposite was true. Don't feel bad orchidee, I also had to get out the dictionary on that one! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ .

          • Michael Edwards

            Thanks SLR - yes the opposite is sometimes true.

          • orchidee

            Cooeee - how did the evening go? Did Russia win again? Or they not played any more games yet?!
            I suppose with the second one, we might blurt out: 'You always...' or 'You never...' etc. Sometimes may be true, sometimes not.

            • Michael Edwards

              It could almost be that it didn't if it did but I won't just in case it does - if you see what I mean.

              Thank you Michael.

              A beautiful poem, poignant, powerful and ever so true.

              Keep writing
