I wish, I wish

I wish I was a poet I wish that I could write the kind poem that talks of love and life. To speak of shards and fractile  light while travelling through this vale of tears. I think that, that is so hard I bet it would take years.

I wish I was an author a best seller I would pen ! I’d wow the critics and public and I’d never work again. Or maybe  a screen writer a fantastic  gun ho! script, a Gothic terror with vampires cavorting in the crypt.

I wish I could write romances , long painful arduous tales with women running barefoot after their men across the dales. I’d have beautiful nurses falling at the doctors feet . God help the poor patients who we never hear of …perhaps they are all asleep .

I wish I could write science fiction that would be so much fun with planet sized star ships with sonic missile guns. I’d have a charming captain who always knows just what to do , and evil, clever aliens with sexy females the human crew to woo.  Travel would be in jet cars that work on voice command and no one would ever need to cook or mend as a replicator would always be on hand.

I wish I could write on politics …well no that is not true , because it is a nasty backstabbing two faced thing to do!

I wish I could write comedy I like to have a laugh, with lots of smiles and happy days I’d split your sides in half.

I wish that could write  another verse or two but I have run out of ideas. What a twist of luck for you !

    Clever words, and deceiving as well…it makes it sound like you WISH you could write poetry, when indeed you can so very well. Lovely! Whimsical! It put a smile on my face. The last line made me chuckle 😉

        Let loose the child within Willow, oh so many a poem I have written using the child held inside, we lose so quickly the ability to see with eyes that are not blinded by life and it’s many lessons learned. xx

        Let loose the child within, watch her leap and dance and spin. She will run you off your feet and embarrass you by singing loud whenever friends you meet. See her climbing up that tree she has ripped that shirt again chasing up the rocks and shouting I am free!! But Oh! she needs a friend perhaps one who can mend??So Pen let loose the child with in together what wonders we could spin!! hehehehehe!! Thanks pen xx here is one I wrote a couple of months ago about releasing the child within. https://willowdot21.wordpress.com/2011/08/22/354/

    Nay, not a twist of luck for us Willow, ’tis always a pleasure to see your thoughts in rhyme and poetry… Do you find yourself thinking in rhyme all the time?…even whilst shopping? and the worst is just before I lay down to sleep,
    as my head hits the pillow my mind seems to search, for the next line, thus leaving deep sleep in the lurch… See?.. No hope for me…escape whilst thou canst my lovely friend.. And you are a Poet, your wish was granted long ago, you just didn’t know it… 😀 xPenx

    This is great! Lots of humor and just moves along perfectly. I love the lightness and directness! This reads as if it was written with total inspiration and no effort — how such a happy poem should read!

    I love the progression across subject areas and the perfect ending! I think this is one of those poems that one shares across the internet or gets published in a general topic magazine. Very impressive!

      Why, thank you so much. I am glad you enjoyed it. It was as you say a little idea that demanded to be written it was like I was just the instrument for it to get on to the page .. I think my head would of burst if I had not written it !! I hope you are well XXXX

    Haha. This was a delight. The last line had me rolling, because I find myself writing the same kind of thing in some of my poems when I literally run out of rhyme. Xx Lily

      Thank you it was just a little ditty that threw itself out on to the screen. It was like a spoilt child from the second of it’s arrival demanding my full attention and would not let me rest until it was done. Be well be happy and power to your pen!! xxx

    you have all you wished for. the talent for story telling and poetry. you can really develop them further and get published. 🙂

    from time to time we get that feeling staring at a blank page or screen. we just need new inspiration. and its just abundant all around us. even the dregs in a cup of tea inspires. creativity knows no barriers.
