Painting with words

When painting with words
the writing room floor
is splattered with cast-offs
from poems and more

Yet none of them wasted
as words always find
their place in creation
from a poet’s mind

Slice of Life

A poet’s life is never dull
for there is always stuff around
to capture inspiration
and write a few words down
It might be quite innocuous
that others rarely see
But captured in some lines of verse
Provides a remedy

For me a rhyming couplet
usually works out fine
although finding words to fit
is sometimes taxing on the mind
But the satisfaction that it gives me
is worth the toil and strife
with the pleasure there of capturing
a little slice of life
