Change Of Address

I tossed my thoughts
in a copse of bare trees
to let them network
with filigree shadows,
and chip-chirp-chatter;
they needed the graphics
of sky and earth,
a change of address
from Windows and screens.

We should all toss our thoughts sometimes ... especially when they chatter.
Excellent Pat! Liked this poem. Food for thought.

Thanks Margie, you're are very sweet!! Happy T'day to you too!!

Russell, thank you!! What a comparison. I confess I had not read that one until yesterday, I loved it!!

Thanks SB!! Sometimes I keep my face in this computer screen too much.

Thanks MB!!

Thanks Andrew!!

Thank you Polona!!

Floots, it was needed!! Thanks!!

Ann, thank you very much!!

Don, if that's being "aired" in the great beyond, I'll let Elvis take my place.

Thanks Kai!!

Thanks Vaughn!! Tried to throw some words in there to highlight the last line. Not being computer savy, I'm sure there were some better ones to use.

Thanks, Amalendu!!

TIC, WOW! what a compliment. Probably had something to do with the drugs back in the early '70's. Thank you!!

Prashant, I appreciate you reading!!

Trinitystar, at least run them through the washer and dryer. Thank you, and happy T'day. Ya'll don't have that in England, do you??

i confess - i had to look up copse.

well done. i like it. (any poetry that i can grasp is usually poetry i like.) my wife has been writing and studying poetry for a while. I suppose i lean toward vintage billy collins over Homer. i think she would like your blog and your writing.

i must also confess that your twang adds some color and depth. i know. that makes me a bigot or something..... but better a poetry bigot than a racist comedian.

thanks for visiting and commenting on my site.
