Here’s to less and scapes and tiny feets

Posted on

Here’s to movies and mindless
Painting and timeless
Storytelling and escape
Nature and starscapes

Heres to tired, and to flying
Showing up and to sighing
And to each miniscule move of a child..
The tweek of their cheek,
Big stairs and tiny feet

Here’s to mud and it’s call
Here’s to good news
Here’s to voicelessness not mattering,
Here’s to more mud and it’s splattering.

Janet L. Whitehead.  Nov 2010

(OH MY GOLLY GEE, I AM a poet!! Who knew!!!  Okay, I really tried to post this here like a proper poet might, but people, i’m so excited.  I am known for bad poetry.. it’s intentionallly bad because then it’s funny, but good poetry never ever ever. But look what I did?  This is good, right?  THIS is what happens in Muse Groups… a little trigger and one discovers one’s brilliance, amongst other things.   Wow, I rock, right?    Sheesh, one would think I’d never written a good poem before by this rant of celebration!  What makes this even funnier is that I’m the facilitator of the Muse Groups. ha!)

    This is good. What if you’ve lost the ability to write bad poetry?


  3. I think that I will be okay,
    i’m writing bad poetry today.
    Once upon a little rhyme,
    and making sure it’s really ridiculously out of time.
