someday soon i hope to find
long hair on the pillow next to mine
twice as many dirty dishes in the sink
a fancy shampoo on the shopping list
another car in the driveway when i get home
a half-eaten donut, of which i had none
someone else’s clothes in the washing machine
what it feels like to be loved again

Beautiful picture created with simple words. Very good.
thanks. i found a handful of poetry that i had written yeeeears ago and figured, “eh, what the hell.”
🙂 what a wonderful poem….
Post all you have found… it’s no hell, it’s beauty!!!! 🙂
somewhere i have a journal of poetry from college. i better start looking.
yes!!!! 🙂 I want to read more!!!! 😉
i think it’s on a shelf downstairs. going right now…
😆 😀 Don’t laugh Rich… I am addicted to poetry… I admit…My name is Ela and I am a poetryholic … 😆
Write more, Smart Alec.
Working on it.
what a beautiful poetry Rich
made me smile…. had such a lovely feeling going through it
you are so gifted..love love love it
oh i wish this one had some tags like poetry in it more people would have got the opportunity to read it
i only learned about tags recently. maybe i should edit the page and add some.
Will it work cos page updates or new page setups are not notified to followers
what if you repost or reblog it with tags
that makes sense. thanks for the suggestion.
Rich, the tags will show up online. The poem will show up if somebody clicks on any one of your tags labeled “poetry” on any post.
Thanks. That’s what I thought but wasn’t sure. For years I was putting tag info under categories, which may have been less effective.
I like this piece…. 🙂 (all smiles)
and i like that you like it. thanks.
So much said in just a few words… How do you do it?
Revising and editing and Revising and editing and Revising and editing and …
You have a great gift there.
That’s a wonderfully nice thing to say.
It happens to be that not everybody can revise and edit and feel as well as you do.
I guess I should feel special about that. Thanks.
So damn beautiful Rich. Isn’t that what we all want? To feel loved. To feel needed. To be enough. And to be content.
thanks miss. and yeah, i think we all do.
I want this….my husband cleans up after himself entirely too well.
A simple, yet beautiful poem. I can totally relate!
if you can relate, then you are officially as brilliant as me. welcome to the small club.
You have a unique sense of humor! I can relate to wanting someone to love and someone who loves me. It’s not too much to ask for…
it’s minimal to ask for. and thanks on the humor. i tend to agree, except when i don’t.
LOL! You’re welcome. I also wrote a poem called ‘Someday.’ It’s included in my book, Naked Desires.
two of my favorite words. naked and desires. i noticed on your gravatar thing it says you’re in plantation, florida. i used to spend time near there i think when i had family living about 45 minutes southwest of disney. is plantation anywhere near there?
What a small world! Plantation isn’t anywhere near Disney. It’s not far from Ft. Lauderdale. I’ll have to either add “Someday” to my blog or e-mail it to you. I’m an educator, too – on a volunteer basis for now.
ft. lauderdale, i spent a week near there ironically exactly four years ago. right after voting, i got on a plane and went to pompano beach.
Wow! Where do you live?
new jersey, but in about three years i’m planning on moving to florida so my kid can go to college there.
How did you fare during Hurricane Sandy? The damage is sad & shocking. It’s unbelievable that your part of the country got hit with a hurricane – that’s usually my neck of the woods!
my town was smacked pretty good, but at my end of the island it wasn’t so bad. you might have seen pres. obama at a press conference that was only about two miles from me. brigantine, nj.
I am so sorry your town got hit hard. I hope things get better. It’s going to take some time.
i was lucky. part of my fence was knocked down. i voted today and saw a couple of hundred people living in the gym of the community center where i voted. compared to them, i really had nothing happen at all.
i have a friend in st. augustine, fla. i asked him about evacuating for storms, and he said he’s only evacuated three times in 10 years, and one of those was because of wild fires. so i think i’m pretty cool with moving to florida. and i LOVE disney, so that helps too.
Keep in mind that it all depends where you live in Florida and where storms hit.
yup. i struggling to decide whether to be near the ocean or disney. tough choice.
I really like this..a lot. Ceri
thanks very much. nice to meet you.
nice to meet you too 🙂
