Fool

Fool

I’m just a fool 
who likes to spend her time
experimenting 
with rhythm and rhyme.
I’ll never get rich 
in this word game.
I won’t find fortune. 
I won’t find fame,
but I have found 
a kindred soul or two,
not a lot, just a few,
who also like 
to put words in a string,
creating pearls of wisdom, 
making lingual bling.

  8. Connie, you are so talented with words... I love how you string words together in poetry... xox

    I hope the spring has sprung where you are... we are still battling the tail end of winter here with a few snow flurries and bitter cold... spring will happen soon xox

  12. I agree with Robyn. "Lingual bling" describes your writing style perfectly! Another outstanding poem, and only a fool would think otherwise.
