THE RELUCTANT POET

by thereluctantpoet

by Charles R. Lindholm  

NOT FOR FAME AND FORTUNE
HE HIDES HIS GIFT FROM SIGHT
NOT BELIEVING IN THE TRUTH
BUT STILL HE’S FORCED TO WRITE

A TIDBIT OF AN INSIGHT HERE
OR AN INSPIRATION THERE
A FUNNY THOUGHT, AN INNER FEAR
A DREAM OF LOVE OR A SIMPLE JOY

By Charles Robert Lindholm

I
Sit In
Silence Wondering Where
All The Years Have
Fled

Parading In My

Childhood
Days Relived
Moments And Memories
That Went By Too Fast

Fireplace
Flames, An
Old Man With
Coffee Cup Memories Of
Christmas

Of shillings and treasure revisited

by Jem Croucher

6 of 12 in ‘The of…’ series from Jemverse 2022

I watched the shilling spinning
it was mine in no small measure
Enough to buy two Matchbox cars
to hold and keep and treasure
The fingers twisted blithely
as they caught and spun again
but I saw no abandon
found no one there to blame
