From the inside-out, the inner poet escapes, needing to express....
smiles...love the alice in wonderland reference...so much in life is beyond our control and good when we have friends that go that way with us..
I see you did use the photo! Love it..especially the beginning "where life went beyond my reach and time ticked past with no control" I have written a couple of poems from Alice.
Very nice, Ginny...I didn't even see the Cheshire Cat in the original photo...when I have some time I may go back and see if that tree is still there.
Thanks for sharing the image, my friend. And if that tree is there after all this time, be sure to take more photos!!
big grins...love alice in wonderland...and it among many a book i owe much of my life...they used to be where i retreated to get lost or find some sense...
Cheshire Cat fandom aside, this is a lovely poem and a fitting letter to the one or many that tend to appear to help us along, smiling felines or not.
This is just great...the serious content is leavened by the fairytale style of the telling. You've developed such a naturally graceful style. Nice work here.
I have become more fascinated with Alice lately...hhmmm. Very nice. The first stanza feels very much like Stu's in sentiment. Very good.
I absolutely adore this poem, Ginny. It's incredible! Thanks for sharing! :D
looovvvveeeeeeeeee.......ginny- so good, great form,mdont take this the wrong way, but it's simplicity was its beauty...you got a message across about living life, it's roller coaster, sometimes feeling like Alice in Wonderland so so well. This made me smile- such a positive poem.
Never would take the wrong way from you. Your comments always appreciated!!
I love the fairytale premise. Wonderland here and Neverland at my place.
Tweedledum and Tweedledee haha oh that title is just such fun to me. But yeah the places we go life will continue to grow and show and flow. Still in rhyming mode I will confess..haha
this made me smile... down the rabbit hole is always a great place to be!
A sweet and gentle poem. I enjoyed it.
Appreciation is something I have pondered lately... for the whole of my life, even the "mistakes" as often they "way out" put me into contact with some pretty awesome people. Your use of rhyme and rhythm always mesmerizes me.
Maximum score for this beauty Ginny. In this part of the world we enjoy a game called snooker. The maximum score is 147. Wouldn't Lewis Carroll be flattered that his fantasy tale about Alice would be so lovingly depicted, 147 years later!
Thank you for reading my poetry and sharing your thoughts.
