While Most Kids

While most kids enjoy their box of toys


My inner child’s pride is a treasure trove of words


I love to admire, touch and fondle them


I play with their different finishes


Some are soft and shiny, some are dull


I prefer the ones that are translucent


The pearly ones are wonderful


Some are precious and semi-precious


Some are hurtful, others soothing


Some imprison, others liberate


Some words are dense and cold


While others as gentle as a whisper


Some reflect elation and infinity


My treasure trove of words is bottomless


I am a playful princess proudly wearing my tiara


Wealthy beyond imagination

I started writing poetry as a teenager and the passion for it flourished since retiring. I also dabble in photography, watercolour and acrylics. I created what I call Flash Memory Therapy. I am an active member of Haiku Canada and PoetrySoup.com. My poetry is down-to-earth and meant to be understood as opposed to impress with hifalutin words.
