One Single Impression: Elusive


Impish Elusive Nothings
a wordless little poem

Words eluded me today
for that I will simply write
tomorrow or yesterday.

Meter here abandon care
a bit of nonsense today
without those words nothing's here.

Rhyme it surely I can do
missing words not a problem
I do this lark just for you.

Brilliant! The way you compose, so eloquently off the hat, and with your element of humor, is simply amazing.. Quite sincerely, I wish I was thus gifted!
Oh, and I just love the name for this poem, "Impish Elusive Nothings"... :)

Wow! This is a very wonderful poem, Dr Jim =)

It's my brother whose daughter has not met my father yet. It's a very delicate situation. I dare not probe too much into it. Thank you for your concern =)

doesn't seem as if words eluded you actually Jim, because you've come up with such a beautiful poem!! :)

Sometimes, we just have to write about what is happening (or not happeing!)at the moment. The words that come out are always a surprise and a gift.

Jim my friend, this is a good one. Sometime I am at loss for words and get stuck in being creative. Not you it would seem. Excellent


love, Cassi

I admire the word 'cheeky' which Tony wrote, but I also deem you clever, Master Jim.

Making fun of your muse are you? I just read Patois' haiku and your fun comment there! I had to come over and see what you wrote! You both made me smile!

Glad you tackled this one Jim! Even though the words were elusive, it turned out just fine! Cute!
