A midsummer night’s dream

A midsummer night’s dream.
That’s what it was.

You came in to my world
all glittering and sparkling.

Your enthusiasm was contagious.

I got infected with the germ of
your exuberance.

And ever since I’ve been

You showed me the best of you.
And the worst of you, too.

You came in like a lamb and left like a lion.

Everything I thought I knew
changed overnight.

It helps me to think of that tempestuous
night as nothing more than a

Midsummer night’s dream

That’s taken a while
to interpret.

    Great stuff!! I just started to be here , as you may know by now.
    I love poetry and do some sometimes. Just posted 2 on my blog and will post more in the future.
    I would appreciate all your comments. Because I am a bit `mad`, you know..lol.
    You should do more poems.
    Love and smiles.

  2. Joe –

    I am just learning how to be expressive in poetry and it’s really difficult for me. I feel so much wanting to come out…but it’s difficult to get the feelings out in words that sound beautiful in a poem.

    Sometimes I do get inspired and something interesting comes out. I hope, with practice, it will get easier.

    I will take a look at your poems and let you know what I think.

    I’m smiling, and I sure do feel the love,

    Thank you.
