Contented Continuance

Poem By Vaughn Wood

It’s not too often you get a moment with one so wise
Wisdom appears in many shapes and colors
But one must be careful
So do lies

Time granted the season for an Orchid to bloom
A moment of awestruck luster it was
Then with one surrender
A peaceful landing did loom

From where did it come from?
Where did it go?
Nowhere, yet somewhere
A simple I am that I am
and please continue

Who Am I?

“Who am I, you ask? ”

I am a narrative in the making,
A happy ending not yet told;

Fluidic Red With A Punch

Parched lips are the result
of a conversation needed.
But honest feelings shared
go down like soured wine,

The Unwelcomed Guest

Your stench is that of an unwelcomed guest
Unseen nightly, yet clandestinely
Hiding underneath my bed.

Old Man

The old man whittled a point
on a stick he found nearby.
Worry had been a lifelong companion
and now he was wondering why.

The Worst And Best Day Of My Life

Not many days hold the power of such parody,
Where reflection bids a respectful bow.
Catastrophic at first glance,
A single day full of heartbreaking events.
