Under a Pillow or Cloud



Here’s a flash, just for you

Or should I say for me

I’m not quite what you think

I’m not quite what you see


It seems that I’m a writer

A purveyor of words you know

Someone who juggles words

But hardly lets it show


But that is not the secret

It’s not the only claim

I also want to be recognized

Just a little bit of fame


No it’s not for profit

It seems it’s late for that

This longing for recognition

Is something on which I’ve sat


Okay it’s not a secret

Anyone would want the same

It common for anyone expressive

To also want be known by name


In fact it’s only hidden

By its lack of presentation

This self-induced denial

Obscured by hesitation


So I would like to someday see

A single publication some day

That brings someone happiness

Before they go their way


So there you have my secret

Though not a revelation

Just another bit of exposure

Another bit of exploration

I am a poet/writer with a need for words. There are so many out there that I haven't used yet. They define all reality and mine when you read those from me.
