Eating Poetry

Rock, Paper, Ink

I wrote on the ceiling
scribbled on the sink
scratched the furniture
our whole damn house drenched in ink

yet he did not like my verses much
he fancied only greatness
Keats and Blake and such
thus I had to rephrase grace
and show it to him some other way

so I marked the windows
engraved the cat’s bowl
penned grace across his face
carved poetry into his damn soul

  1. Eckhart Tolle wrote: “The great arises out of small things that are honoured and cared for. Everybodies life really consists of small things. Greatness is a mental abstraction and a favorite fantasy of the ego. The paradox is that the foundation for greatness is the honouring of the small things of the present moment instead of pursuing the idea of greatness”. Thank you for posting your poem, a beautiful inspiration!

  2. Haha… love that… yes you tell him with poetry!! πŸ˜€

    I have a request for you!! Would it be possible to publish this brilliant poem of yours in the next issue of an online literary magazine of mine?

    It currently has thirteen issues (one new one every two months). There are no printed copies or any payment involved for myself or the writers – it’s a free magazine for anyone to read. The aim is to help promote writers on websites and blogs from all over the internet. https://thewritinggarden.wordpress.com/

    Copyright remains with the writer. I always include a link back to where the work was originally published plus any other links or social media links you may wish to include (please let me know which ones – if you have any).

    If you would be interested in allowing me to publish your work please check out the magazine and let me know. But if you’d rather not, don’t hesitate to say no, I really won’t mind.
