#SomethingDifferent 2 – Two More Poems by The Chocolate Lady!

Once upon a time, I wrote poetry!

Somewhere deep inside my #LetsDiscuss2020 #DiscussionSunday post about my regimen vs. impulse posting, I posed the question if anyone thought it might be fun for me to post some of my poetry here on my blog. Well, a couple of people showed interest, and the rest of you can just click on by if you aren’t poetry people (I promise, I won’t be the least bit offended)! These were written between 1976 and 1978!

So, forgive me – I was very young!

Noah

Standing at the sea’s edge
playing to himself
a crowd listens.

the world continue
he stops to listen

One woman laughs
a warmed sound
of another day

One person sighs
a colder feeling
of a known change.

Upon waters he sails
with a treasure of nature;

Upon a stool he plays
with the nature of truth.

Subway

Wandering empty, along still hallways
a reflection in a clear glass comes alive.
Towards me, he turns
train-1836126_640past me, he looks.

Sailing quiet, through silent tunnels
the reflection stands alone.
Small blossoms, he holds;
my vision, he takes.

Leaving swift, out iron doors
a reflection fades softly; until a new reflection
in a clear glass, lives again,
again.
