Dog-eared Darling

 

Dog-eared Darling

Often have I looked your way
when searching for the words to say
what simple words cannot convey.

Seldom have you let me down
when seeking words that lend a sound
of confidence, perhaps profound.

Other times I’ve simply laughed
at words you’ve placed within my drafts,
small lessons in this writing craft.

Dog-eared pages show the way
to all the times I’ve thanked the day
your words were gathered by Roget.

Today is National Thesaurus Day. This poem is my response to Poetics: The Poets Store House, the prompt from Laura Bloomsbury at dVerse ~ Poets Pub, which is to write a poem inspired by the thesaurus.

  1. This is absolutely stellar writing, Ken! 😀 I especially resonate with; “Other times I’ve simply laughed at words you’ve placed within my drafts, small lessons in this writing craft.” Yes! 💝💝
