the ride


Poem Commentary

i have been writing, but, not as much as i would like. i have some more poems to add shortly. it is good to see that so many poets are still here, writing their lives and scribing those specific hours that moved them the most. feels good to be back.

the ride


i don't pretend to know
what life is all about
most of the time, i enjoy the surprise
like a new amusement ride
you hop on
and you hope that it makes you scream
you hope that it makes you laugh
you hope that it makes you cry
and throw your hands up high


in the blink of our widened eyes
the real surprise
is how short the ride really is

so hop on
and scream
and laugh
and cry
and throw your hands up high

A statement and declaration all in one....I smiled reading this and wanted to shout...."OK I GET IT"....Lol....reminds me of moments when in the summer you run through the sprinklers or just dance in the rain.....nice write my friend....Cher



Thank you ❤️

A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
