Six of one and half a dozen of the other



Boring lackluster monologue

How my skin crawls

When I hear platitudes


Six of one and half a dozen of the other

Does take the prize

 For the ultimate superlative

Epitome of all redundancies and platitudes

Making my head silently implode

Trying not to draw attention

To how annoyed I become

Hoping the source of my vexation

Will one day fall into oblivion


Really makes me laugh though

Some day I could easily see myself

Become teary eyed with nostalgia

Thinking about my beloved late husband

And how he used to love

Using that most endearing phrase

And how I loved him so

I started writing poetry as a teenager and the passion for it flourished since retiring. I also dabble in photography, watercolour and acrylics. I created what I call Flash Memory Therapy. I am an active member of Haiku Canada and My poetry is down-to-earth and meant to be understood as opposed to impress with hifalutin words.
