#SoCS for September 30, 2017 ~ Do/Dew/Due

Here are the rules and ping back

Even before I saw the prompt, I decided I would take my hand at poetry today.  Of course my poetry is on par with roses are red, violets are blue, sugar is sweet and so are you.  Yet how does one improve?  Practice makes perfect.  If you want to write, then write and all that good stuff.

Though if you ask B, he dislikes nothing more than someone who says you can be anything you want to be if you just set your mind to it.  He believes that is unrealistic.  No matter how much we want something and how hard we try, sometimes things aren’t meant to be.  It’d be like me saying I want to be a dancer.    I could practice for eons and that will not happen.  Though … Travis Wall … if you are reading this … (as if)! I have a challenge for you – choreograph a number and teach this 52-year-old a thang or two. 😉

her lashes sparkled

like dew

she finally broke

down the wall

holding her up

paid her dues

and still she cried

all the tears

she preferred to hide

do onto others

the golden rule

    1. Thank you! Yours is so much better!!! I am going with poetry on #SoCS for the foreseeable future, trying to up my game. Practice makes perfect 🙂


  1. I think your poem is lovely. It’s fun writing poetry and it’s good for the soul . It doesn’t have to be brilliant – do it for yourself and you’ll find many who will enjoy reading it.

  2. I enjoy reading poetry, and this is quite nice. I don’t know about “anything” but I think we can do things. I also think we have to question the idea of what we want. Thanks for joining us today and sharing a lovely little poem.

    1. Agree. It’s the “anything” part. We can all figure out our special thing(s). And figuring it out to a thinker like me is quite enjoyable. Have a great day Dan!
