Expectations

Reluctant to disappoint you
my fingers key words in
…..one by one
…..as they occur to me.

What will you make of them
…..I wonder?

What can I make of them
…..I ask myself?

Expectations — we all have them,
…..don’t we?

Disillusioned,
…..I press the publish button.

  1. This poetry, I never know what I’m going to say.
    I don’t plan it.
    When I’m outside the saying of it,
    I get very quiet and rarely speak at all.

    From Essential Rumi

    • Caught the moment wonderfully. I never cease to be amazed at the potential of language – and I am always happy using it. Does a picture really tell us “more than a thousand words”? Reading this, I just would not think so. I’d just think it is different… Whatever. I enjoy this! tms
