See This Ring?
It doesn’t matter what It cost —
Eye bought It for My Birthday
Years and Years ago
to signify my “attachment”
to The Little Man
Eye say Eye have been in love with
for nearly three decades.
See This Diamond?
It houses a pie-shaped Inclusion
to signify Its Uniqueness
and Eye wear it upon my left ring finger
Now and Then
to signify my endless heart’s time.
Thank you Chagall. Im a little surprised by your comment! Yesterday I submitted my “Good Morning, World!” poem to the CBC poetry contest.
Why surprised? A very honest voice is present in the piece. Though I am not a fan of the ‘Eye,” as I might have previously mentioned in comments on past writing. Good luck in the upcoming contest. Did you submit the words or the spoken piece?
Submitted the written form. Surprised because I didn’t think the poem would merrit such a compliment as Beautiful.
Beautiful schmootiful – a word is a word is a word…
