Displaced words – TB

7 Dec

Not fathered
Many little ones.
Brought into the world
And left there.
Made with the intention
That they’d be revisited.
Made with very much affection.
Now the little ones may look
Back with bitterness.
Forgotten, now, disowned
And orphaned.

    We poets are like the old woman in the shoe! so many poems we don’t know what to do.

    words that weren’t fathered, yet still orphaned, interesting concept.

    focused implementation

    Fathered yes but certainly not orphaned with the many from the community in blogosphere. There’ll be adoptions certainly! Great lines Crayfish!

    Sweet little darlings, we are watching… You’ll never stay in a cyber-drawer; not while we are here. ♥

    Yes . . . the life of a poet

    Great lines. Hopefully, they won’t feel orphaned.

    Once they are scribbled out somewhere I feel they are better off than never having been written. Makes me think of the scribblings and quick sketches of artists who became great after they died… and how much those sell for!

    This is clever. So many orphaned words out there…
