Relishing happiness


Today I feel so happy

I’ve felt it all day long

The sun has been shinning

And nothing has gone wrong

Tomorrow may be different

Each day is unlike all the rest

But for now I’m relishing in happiness

Feeling loved and so very blessed

  1. Two positive poems in a row. Sounds like everything is going well there. I hope so πŸ™‚

  2. Lol… thanks Trent. One of them was supposed to post tomorrow. πŸ˜‰ I actually wrote both of these a long while back. That’s the the thing with me, I usually don’t post anything I write until months later. I guess I keep people guessing what sort of mood I’m in and wondering what’s really going on. πŸ˜‰

  3. lol, I guess we can never know… I’m the opposite – I typically open a WP window, write the poem out and press “Publish”. I’m sure people can tell…

  4. Do you really? Lol… I’ve always been nervous to type in WP… afraid I’ll lose my work. My internet goes out on me so often. I typically write about 3 poems a day during the weeks when I’m feeling inspired. I then save everything up that I write to post at a later time. Of course there are those instances when something in my life will overwhelm me, and then I’ve just got to write about and post it all in the same day. Those are usually my most emotionally sad poems. Sometimes you just have to get it out or it is likely to consume you if you don’t. And some things I write aren’t always fitting for my blog. There’s many times, I never end up posting what I’ve written.. I feel like if something’s too personal in its nature, I can’t always share it. Too many people I know read my blog, especially family members. I worry what some might think! Lol… πŸ˜‰

  5. Actually, most of the time I do write it in Word, but I copy and paste it into the WP editor almost as soon as it’s done. I’ve rarely posted a poem that is more than a few hours old, most are posted in seconds. I never save the original because I occasionally edit the WP version, so I don’t want to mistakenly grab an old version.

    For the most part my Internet connection is fine and I’ve never lost a post that I wrote directly into the editor, even when I’ve done posts that were hundreds of words. I can see how a flaky connection would make you use something else besides the editor.

    In some ways I don’t consider myself a “real” poet. I write at least one poem a week almost as an exercise, to keep that part of my mind sharp. I feel that the more I write poetry, the better I can use those tools to help my prose writing.

    So I consider people like you, who need to write poetry to express themselves, as the real poets.

    I can understand why you would skip posting some of the more personal poems! Occasionally I think twice before I post something for much the same reason – even though it is mostly an exercise, I do want it to be “real”. I may mask what I am really talking about, or perhaps use past experience to write something in the present tense, but it still sometimes gets personal and, well, people don’t like exposing themselves, do they? At least I don’t….

  6. This is always the problem you run into, of you aren’t an anonymous blogger. I’m leaving my more personal poems for when I finally get my book published. If people really want the dirt, they can read it then. Lol…

  7. I believe that as writers we strive to make readers wonder whether the words are about us. You have achieved that πŸ™‚ I guess I’ll have to wait until your book is published to read your “dirt”. Something tells me it will be worth the wait πŸ™‚

  8. Thanks Walt, that’s the sweetest compliment you could give me. Oh to keep our readers guessing. Yes! That’s exactly what I strive to do. πŸ˜‰ I’m currently working on getting my first poetry book put together. I can’t wait to share it with everyone. πŸ™‚
