Sarah-Jane Murphy Mar 21
The baby cooed and laughed and rocked the pram When I came in, and I was embarrassed By old men standing up to shake my hand And tell me they were 'sorry for my trouble' Whispers informed strangers I was the eldest Away at school, as my mother held my hand. 😢

Promise me you will not spend so much time treading water and trying to keep your head above the waves that you forget, truly forget, how much you have always loved to swim.

Perhaps you find tranquility in the brevity of the haiku perhaps you find peace in meditative silences of a slow mind Maybe just maybe slipping your hand in mine our hearts warm up a degree or two The world itself seems to bloom anew

Oh, love why do we argue like this? I am tired of all your pious talk Also, I am tired of all the dead They refuse to listen so leave them alone Take your foot out of the graveyard they are busy being dead ~Ann Sexton

In the shadows of darkness, There exists a light, Softly calling, Poised to save us from ourselves, Some call it passion, Many call it love, I call it poetry.

She walked among springs first kiss Changing seasons lift her spirits... New buds, a carpet of yellow & white You will find her this day writing poetry near lily of the valley, oh such delicate fragrance in the shade.... ~JS

Let me at 'em with definition and without hesitation Partly I am intoxicated by poetry and partly I want to expose the beast, by its lack of reality yet isn't that exactly what it's all about loving, dreaming and the weight of living

I am a poet And I don’t even know it Yet with opening contradiction Those first lines don’t fit Logical friction Doesn’t work well as diction The conclusion I draw: My poems are sh*t 🙂
