poem 5/3/10 – paperweight/manna

Yes, sometimes when your blog is about posting something every day, you get place-holders, paperweights keeping the writer’s mind from fluttering away. At the moment, spending hours on getting out a newsletter.

Tomorrow I plan to post a decent – hopefully – poem on Big Tent Poetry‘s prompt for today.

paperweight/manna

these little words
I hope
will be enough
for you –
manna from my tiny heaven
anchoring down your world
settling and safe
sating your wordish hunger
until my better poems
my brighter words
they will be simple like fractals
– believe me, they will be
flutter down
smowflaking
frosting your desert
curing what ails you

  1. Ah..we all have paper weights for those moments when our muse fails to showup for morning coffee….always enjoy you poems.

  2. Wrapped up really nicely, I love the way you write, Lawrence 🙂
    Thank you for the lovely comment you left on my website on the poem ‘magical shoes’. You said something about using my poem in a book or a poster. If you do want to use my poem: feel
    free. As long as you put my name on it!
