A Poem From The Attic

In the deep, dry gloam,

above my happy, healthy home,

lives a quiet, lonely space,

a world left out of place.


A weight upon the house,

but silent as a mouse,

comforting but somehow eerie,

to make my glance grow leery.


On a dusty table I see a page,

blurry, penciled words draw my gaze,

a written work lay there lost and unread,

a  poem from the attic by a poet long dead.

    1. Thank you Patrick! Unfortunately I’ve not had the time to get into many blogs…yours and Randy’s regularly. Maybe I’ll find some time somewhere, I do see some great writing going on around here.:)

      1. Ha! That’s exactly the problem I had when I was first nominated. 🙂 I gave the same explanation to the person who nominated me.
