Just another Thursday!

"Ink runs from the corners of my mouth. There is no happiness like mine. I have been eating poetry." ~Mark Strand

"Like winds and sunsets, wild things were taken for granted until progress began to do away with them. Now we face the question whether a still higher 'standard of living' is worth its cost in things natural, wild and free. For us of the minority, the opportunity to see geese is more important that television."~ Aldo Leopold

"Fight for your opinions, but do not believe that they contain the whole truth or the only truth."
~Charles Anderson Dana

It's Thursday and it has been a great day even into the night.. Tonight you are getting three quick poems.. please enjoy!!

1:} ~ a septolet is described as a short poem of seven lines.... having a total of fourteen words...having a break between two parts...the two parts deal with the same though.. each creating an image and the combined two create an image.

Wild Horses ~ {a septolet}

beautiful bangtail
spirit untamed
racing tumbleweeds
across mesas

stallions wrestle
under night skies...

written by: Patricia Sawyer

2:} ~Another septolet... much harder to write than you know.. with only being allowed 14 words..
each word has to say a mouthful!

In the Swamp!

Woven basket
In creek side willows.

Beautiful Hummers
On wildflower Nectar.

written By: Patricia Sawyer

3:} ~ and finally just one more short poem.. Do you have nightmares?
I often do.. they come creeping into my sleep...calling for me...


Night after Night as
I try to enjoy slumber
Groans and moans and
Howling stomping spirits
Torment. Keeping me awake.
Most don't intend to frighten
All lost souls searching. hoping
Reaching out from the shadows
Each wanting to step into the light
Soar into paradise. A Nightmare no more!

I hope you enjoy the three poems I have shared with you tonight? I don't often share three poems on any one night.. Tonight has been so much fun that I am in a sharing mood.. One of my best friends and I started it off with a couple hours of laughing and talking before we were joined by another two friends...a couple who stayed on after she left... I don't have company here during the week much I am wore slap out from laughing at the three of them who before tonight had never met... What a night.. I hope your day was a s good and if not.. Better luck with tomorrow!

PJ~ Thanks woman.. I liked the third one myself.. some folks say it's weird.. maybe I should have posted it on a Wednesday! Some times a poem kinda writes itself.. those are the good ones.. this one was one of them.. I never know where they come from.. they just come when I'm not even trying to write them...
Have a great day!
