Own Way

Must walk the path preordained for me

My own soul’s rhythm and music

Dancing to the inner beat

Rebel in my own way

Ban the critics please

My little patch

Just for me

To be

The words this week are:


❤ ❤ ❤


Published by: writersdream9

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.

  1. Excellent, Carol! For a moment I thought you were writing a ‘Reverse Etheree’…… not the easiest. I’ve only had a ‘go’ at the fundamental Etheree…might post it anon. This one is really good. Hugs! ❤

  2. Welcome back. A beautiful design like a reverse waterfall. I keep feeling, this is the week I am going to attempt to create another Nonet. I have been brave once. It does challenge you. You wrote a poem which is a piece of art. Such perfect choice of wording each line till the end. I philosophy which if practiced globally, might be able to start turning the world around toward some understanding of living together inside a deep sense of life and peace. You did the words a good one. The hand, mind, heart of a true poet lives within you.
