  1. Wow! Thanks Karen,
    Tears
    Eye water flowing

  2. Ouch! made a mistake
    Tears
    Eye water flowing
    As strong emotional dam breaks
    Draining inner well

    Mistake
    Writer off key
    Not king of spelling bee
    No worries, correct error & see

    1. Yikes Yancy!

      I didn't catch that. Yet, I went back to seek out inter. This could be used also to add some depth to the tears as draining the part of live that is buried with a loved one before moving on with life--not always easy.

  3. Faux Pas and Cadillacs

    Trying to flash my headlights,
    I turn on the wipers
    In a screen-wash spray!

    funny, as well, might
    be a little tricky
    driving.

    interlocking pieces
    each one its own hue,
    needed for a full view

    Beggar Man


    I can not deny...
    I saw in his eye,
    Myself, passing by....


    Karma judged my crime...
    And, yes, in due time...
    I begged, "Spare a dime?".

  8. Wow! To me James Dean
    This poem surpasses judging to
    point of being loving and caring. It fits
    the Indian statement of walking in anothers
    moccasins Thanks for sharing.

    The actress, beautiful and blonde,
    remains to us a wondrous sight:
    forever young in black and white.
