4 Wee New Poemies
 
THE POET RESIDES INSIDE

The poet resides in the heart of a man
and in the heart of a woman,
even in flowers
whether they be
male or female or both.

CHRISTMAS COMES TWICE A YEAR

Christmas comes twice a year
where reindeer dance a
bundle of cheer…
where raindrops glisten
all snowy and white
and
kids ‘n adults
play long into the night.

There is a Christmas there
in July,
and one in December, too!

Don’t you wish
that place could be
a place for me and you,
Too!

THE SWING & THE SKY
The swing sings songs
of leaves dancing
skies blue before
awakening.

Is the beginning of the present

Open it

Define "failed". ;) :)

A surprise question
 
Not sure if there is such a thing as failure. Or success for that matter. I suppose failure would be not meeting one's expectations, hopes, dreams whatever they may be. Success the opposite. Yet, I have learned that often not getting what I thought I wanted was actually a blessing in disguise. The word-use you ask of is William Faulkner's use. So... we can only guess what "he" meant, and at how serious he was or not in the words. My skill talking to those who have passed is not great :) . Maybe someone on this site has great facility in that regard and could yak-it-up with ol' William F. and see what he meant, if he even recalls having said it. Fun to contemplate... What is your definition of failure? Success?
