Open-ended

Post by robert »

A single lonely leaf
hanging on.
Waiting for the next breeze
to set it free.
Write about it, then Get over it!

A single Peanut

Post by Gideon »

A peanut on the railway track,
its heart was all a-flutter.
Round the corner came a train.
Toot toot,
Peanut butter.

Sorry Robert. I couldnt resist that. :mrgreen:

EDIT: Hey, it's open-ended, whatever works.

thanks,
robert

peanut butter on the track,

better clean it off.

better to stay on track,

than to fall off.

falling off would be to easy,

just to give up, not a care,

but staying on, riding it out,

man, what a thrill, do I dare?

dare, dare, stare, stare, care, care, hare, hare, ...

wait, that is a rabbit,
maybe we should nabbit,
it could become a habbit,
of ...
daring to care about staring at the hare.

habits....

good or bad,
old and new,

some, like an old pair of shoes,
are very hard to get rid of.

some, like a new pair of shoes,
are very hard to get used to.

getting used to time going by
getting used to wondering why
can't get used to life alone
can't get used to your heart of stone.

would a heart of stone be better than no heart at all?
can you share your life with a stone?
can the stone share its life with you?
would it want to?
would you want it to?

rock and roll,
those were the days.
when I played the drums
for not much pay.
now those drums just sit and rot away
or is it me that just sits and rots away?
boy I do miss the music, the bars and the guys in the band.
I miss being on the road, sharing the good times and the sometimes the bad.
