Poem - Yesterday

The poem “Fair Words” is about the fluid nature of writing poetry. Some days entertain joyful thoughts and other days cater to less happy fare.


Fair Words

Yesterday I expressed
something more than living angst
this glimpse of joy realized
on the page before my eyes

the buoyancy was irregular
even as the fruit was glee
hinting needs beyond the norm
something more than hide and seek

that spot of brightness in the gloom
alleviation for past days
hinting more may arrive
if optimism was my charm

the clouds that opened will rebound
but while the shadow marks the ground
happiness is briefly glimpsed
in the fair words that I expressed.
