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.

      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.

      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.

      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!

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