Poetry is very enjoyable
"A Poet'sLife" by jaybird1
My game in life is poetry
and many times need some support.
My neighbor says ''don't bother me
with your dull, silly, sissy sport.''

He meets opponents, face to face,
while I must face a million words;
Arrange them in their proper place,
or lose them like departing birds.

So, I seek words for metaphors,
or imagery to stir your mind.
I try to open new found doors,
with hope that peace and joy you'll find.

Now, after all is said and done-
His game is tough, my game is fun.

August- 2020


Author Notes
During this time with the virus pandemic, I can't see any sense in playing
in your face contact sports .Read or write poetry, a more uplifting choice.
I am thankful for your continued support of my efforts. They inspire me.
