Once a mule ~

To write like steak with sauté potatoes,
lightest sorbet from fresh mango ~
Carrots Julienne, asparagus tips,
instead I write like fish and chips!

To dip a quill into velvet ink,
look over yonder lake and think.
Instead I have a plastic pen
and sit with laptop in my den!

To write with eloquence and grace,
demurely sat by fireplace.
I write whatever’s in my head,
from ‘garden frost’ to ‘my fish is dead’.

One day though I’ll write a jewel
And be a thoroughbred instead of a mule!

Well, I love all your replies of course but in my mind a mule is what I am metaphorically speaking lol, compared to the amazing talent we have here at PS. Love n huggies, Kerry xxxx Embarassed cyclops

Dear Isobelle;

I like the wit and humor in 'Once a Mule'. Sometimes we get a little too serious with our writing and forget to enjoy the experience. I have the greatest respect for those who pour heart and soul into every piece, but sometimes I think we all need to lighten up. Your poem was fun to read and I suspect that it describes more of us than care to admit it. Rocking Smile

LMAO.......I can fully understand this piece. This is great tongue in cheek humour of the self depracating kind, and I loved it. Drawing the contrasting natures of those giants of the poet world, to us mere mortals....clever and witty. Have yourself an exalt.
