My # 23 for National Poetry Month



bad things come in threes

its easy really

anyone can count that high

not such a high number that people give up

not such a low number

that we don't test the mettle

of the person involved.


I am at number three.

Breathe.

      The old adage, count to ten before striking out. Breathing is good. I guess I'm a two or three. lol

      Have you heard of Sia? She's an amazing artist and this poem of yours reminded me of her...love her songs (and her writings) just like how I love your poetry.

      Profound, simply beautiful and yes, when all else fails, sing!

      Great poem and yes troubles come and they keep coming sometimes. The best way is to take a deep breathe and things will change for the better. Dark clouds are always blown away by the wind.

      Simple, but profoundly beautiful. The quote is so true, sometimes it takes a tortured soul to touch others, be it potery or music.

      As always, outstanding.
