Sometimes the mind finds a soft sweet spot
brimming more nutrients than slime cast
from the mill, gifted with a free

flight though too short a flight
for the flight attendant to bother
with getting herself gussy much

or to pour more than an amber
elixir as a complimentary
comfort shooter because by then

the poor old has-been willow
who pines nights away by the ancient brook,
with a weary huff reminds the millwheel

who also is not very relevant
these days either that casting
slime no longer makes much splash


About Timmy the Scribbler

Love to write all kinds of stuff I love writing so many different kinds of stuff it is a constant struggle to narrow the focus to a manageable handful and let the others go. But a few years ago I dipped my fingers into a poetry pie and of all my uncertainties, one thing that is no uncertainty is that it is one passion that must remain, so maybe that's the one. I do dearly delight in chopping up fictional works into stanzas and syllables.

  1. Certainly a unique perspective, i like it very much


    • I got bit pretty hard when I discovered the world of self-publishing, all the options available to the aspiring writer/wordsmith/poet. I’m incurably drawn to it. However, when I read over stuff I work on to put out there, I see how much it sucks and how much work it needs. But sometimes it reads okay. Sometimes it reads more than okay. Like last night. For a few minutes, my head got into a zone of pure freewheeling enjoyment, and I was really liking the material I’m working on. Then without so much as a whispered warning, the perspective changed, and I couldn’t stand it. Or just saw how much needs further development – or given up on. In all this I find it really fascinating how the mind works, how and why perceptions shift and sometimes like a flash.
