I wanted to write something pithy,
Always do, doesn’t mean it happens though.
The words are there,
Lined up in my mind
Jostling with each other
Wrapping themselves in knots to the point where they become an incoherent mass of letters.
It’s been a lot like that of late.
I try, but words fail me, or so it seems
So, I go back to reading other people’s words
Even though at times I don’t agree with the order they have used them.
But every man to his own,
Language has its own saving grace
We respond with the words we choose
We put them in the order that satisfies us
We experience that sense of contentment
Job well done.
Maintaining our standards is important
Criticism is good, in small doses,
One needs to be resilient, keep one’s sight on what we want to achieve
Stand tall when all around us might be a wasteland.

Satisfying oneself is very important Michael. This was a great poem.
Thanks for reading Sadje
It’s my pleasure
That was very cleverly done, esp the way you tied it to the prompt at the last. 🙂
Thanks Crispina I hope you are doing well
I have recovered from my move. I am now plunged into the garden, trying to rid it on an encroaching *jungle*. Hard work is good for us. Thank you 🙂
Good to hear you are doing well
I hope you are too. 🙂
It seems like ages since you wrote something, Michael, but it’s only been a week. The days have just been oozing into one another lately. Too many idiots around down here who won’t obey the rules and now one of them has caused problems up in your neck of the wood 😕
Sadly it always going to happen. So now we buckle down. Lovely to see you.
I think it’s going to be a sloooow way out of it 😌
I think so too
