I was walking to the mailbox today And realized how beautiful all the pebbles were laid Formed by the water that has been gushing of late I realized beauty has filled up my driveway The moss on the trees and the rabbits in the bush The hush before the children are up I work so much That I have to love the details Or my time would be lost This state is scorned and with good reason But I provide hope Because there will be a season When the dead, rotting limbs fall from the trees Opening the eyes as they spring towards the sky And those of us now wandering and lost Will have a world we can love I also sing


The bees are at my window Eating through the frame Rustle, crunch, twiddle Recently found old poetry from my High School days. All entries will have the HSP (High School Poetry) in header.

Hello Collin,

Your poem Always think before very beautiful as is The recesses of the bitterness. You are talented and must continue to write and never be discouraged. Thank you again. Keith

Welcome to WOL. You are off to a good start here. The participants are varied, as you'd expect, but in all, a very supportive bunch. Be sensible, and avoid a flood of poems all at once; this misjudgement doesn't tend to go down well. If you're consistently good, you'll likely pick up a following. BUT - many people do read without commenting, so don't be discouraged.

It's reasonable, that if you'd enjoy comments on your own work, be sure to make some comments upon the efforts of others.
