I am done with my poetry final exam!
All five poems are finished!

To celebrate, here is one of the (I hope) better ones: Enjoy!


She stands on the cusp of desire
Her eyes take in the landscape before her
It is strange to her
Unfamiliar, new, worrisome
But somehow tempting
Still she hesitates
She is afraid of
She does not know
But tomorrow stretches out his hand.


She sees him there
How lovely he looks
So intelligent and worldly
A man of strength, power and wisdom
Very self assured as well
She sees his confidence
And his smile shines over her
Still she hesitates to come closer
What does the future hold?
But tomorrow stretches out his hand.

He looks so calm, so loving, so confident
She can hardly bear
Not being close to him
He looks tenderly at her
Appraising her and all she is
She knows what he thinks
And she likes it more and more
She reaches out
And tomorrow stretches out his hand!

7. Well, well...
I shuffle into my office to check on a long download in progress (I have slow dial-up) and who do I see?! I was thinking of you earlier... wondering if you had finished up yet. You must feel relieved!

:applause: :bounce: :applause: Congratulations, Peggy!!! :applause: :bounce: :applause:

I'd love to see more of your poetry... very nice!

Now tomorrow stretches out his hand to me as he whispers, "It's 3:38 a.m. my dear, and, now, it's time to go to bed".

9. My dear Green Meanie!
Ah, sweetie...

I am nearly ready to go to bed myself, even though it's nowhere near 3:38 am here...

Thank you so much...

There's more of my poetry in my Journal, should you wish to venture there...

And there's some in the Writer's forum as well...

I am indeed very relieved!

I appreciate your praise, and your support!

Good night....

Was the class, overall, fun?

Are you glad it's done?

Are you looking forward to Poetry 201, or whatever the next class will be?

10. My dear some guy!
Oh, thank you so much!

It was a very worthwhile and yes, fun, class overall!

I am glad it's done, though...

The next class is 24B...and our teacher is trying to get her department head to allow her to teach it to us...

There's not much demand for it, alas...

But she told us we'd do something!

I am looking forward to polishing my craft further...

12. What a lovely
poem! Invoked a bittersweet feeling in me. Glad to hear your finals are done. I remember those days (about 6 years ago). What a rush of relief and the feeling of a great burden being lifted!

16. Very nice poem, Peggy
Edited on Sat Dec-08-07 11:04 AM by skygazer
Congrats on finishing up your final. I'd much rather be writing poetry than studying for my Bankruptcy final (which is this morning and I should be poring over Statements and Schedules instead of posting here).


Bankruptcy

The money's gone, I cannot pay
I fear that this may be the day
When hat in hand I wander down
To see the man all dressed in brown
Who files the papers, takes the fee
And wrests my poor estate from me.
Bankruptcy! Ack! Thy name is dread
I wish I could go back to bed
And never wake to see the morn
This is the price of surfing porn!
My credit cards are all maxed out
I'll lose my house without a doubt
My car was repoed yesterday
The shame will never go away
But I will carry on somehow
And really have to study now!

:P

I love love love your little poem! It's cute, funny and (I'm sure) quite accurate!

Good luck with your Bankruptcy final.... :hug:

I'm sure you'll do fine...

You know more than you think you do...

24. I read it that way because
"tomorrow" seems more general than one particular guy.

Your poem is open to more than one interpretation, and that is part of what I like about it.

28. My Dear CaliforniaPeggy
Like I said.............."Roses are red, violets are blue"
CaliforniaPeggy is the best........how about you?"

So what is the next step in the Poem process? :shrug:




"There is nothing wrong with your television set. Do not attempt to adjust the picture. We are controlling transmission. If we wish to make it louder,we will bring up the volume. If we wish to make it softer, we will tune it to a whisper. We will control the horizontal. We will control the vertical We can roll the image, make it flutter. We can change the focus to a soft blur or sharpen it to crystal clarity. For the next hour sit quietly and we will control all that you see and hear. We repeat: there is nothing wrong with your television set. You are about to participate in a great adventure. You are about to experience the awe and mystery which reaches from the inner mind to... CaliforniaPeggy's Poem"

I am just sitting here, revelling in the posts that have come in while I was away...

And that includes yours...

All of it...

Thank you so much, sweetie...



:hug:

On edit: The next step is hopefully 24B...the poetry workshop. Our teacher is trying to get the dean to allow her to teach it even though there aren't many who want to take it...

We shall see!

I'm hoping to take more from her......
