Another Day


  • slimgrady
  • Hello fellow poets. I am originally from a very small very remote town in the woods of northern Maine.The town had a population of 560 souls.I was brought up( in what some would consider to be) abject poverty.If I was I never knew it. Simply due to the fact that everyone around me was in the same "boat".I have been writing from my teens. I enjoy the woods to this day. I hunt fish and hike whenever possible.And through the years I've learned that there is a God and that I'm not it. "SLIM"

Another Day

Tranquil still,and silent
The sky an azure blue
The morning flowers glisten
There petals damp with dew.

A gental breeze has blossomed
And breaks the sultry air
It holds aloft a butterfly
That seems to linger there.

Squirrels frolic across the lawn
A rabbit takes his time
Sparrows flutter to and fro
As the sun begins its climb.

Flys are buzzing round and round
Aimlessly in flight
As a single cloud drifts by
billowy and white.

Another day has begun
A chance to start anew
How the outcome is percieved
Is greatly up to you.

Mlea, Thank you for taking the time to comment on my poetry. It means a great deal to me and I'm glad you enjoyed it!

Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion.

T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) American-English poet and playwright.
