    Where am I?

    It would be so easy to blame others
    for our plight in this world.
    To curse others
    for our plundering lifestyle.
    But as we grow, mature and
    day by day, slowly get ourselves well...
    Reality comes crashing in.
    It bowls us over and slaps us
    in the face.
    And finally, we awaken..........great part funny but good loved it!

    your poem about twenty little angels was so loving and sweet for such a tragic event! I was so hurt too but I couldnt write it! and your poem A glimpse vivid in scene I could see emotion and feel your love.

    Hi Colleen, I have just finished reading the Witch's Grave. Thank you for a great poem which made me feel empathy for someone who died so many years ago in a town I have never been to. Great work! I am new to PM and I am glad I joined. This is the reason you only have one comment from me. I will read the remainder of your poems one each day to absorb and enjoy your work. Also, many thanks for your comments about my work. They were very much appreciated. Being new to PM I was nervous and your kind words were most welcomed.

    Cooeen Courtney is a great poetess. Her description is lovely. Her language is nice. Her style is simple and convincing. She should write more.

    Hi Colleen, The Witch's Grave, Nicely written, almost a mini story, has a lovely spooky atmosphere with just the right amount of sorrow and regret of such a misguided society that once ruled that area, is it drawn from life where you live or entirely made up, either way another excellent write from you and 10 out of 10 again, love your work, I have only 2 more poems from my dim distant past to put on PH and then I have to actually write something new.....GULP! ! ! ! ! ! Mind you I'm a little annoyed with my list obsession yesterday I got 94 hits on my poems but only 4 points on the favourites list whereas I was overtaken by someone who had about 15 hits and yet got 20 favourite points, I just don't understand how it works, arghhhh. Sorry must try to forget that and get on with my writing, see you later Colleen, much love from me.

Best Poem of Colleen Courtney

Dream Within A Dream

I opened the door in answer to a knock
And seeing who stood there
Gave me quite a shock
For there stood a fairy
Looking sad and forlorn
Her appearance was dirty
Disheveled and worn
Her shoes were all dusty
Her hair a tangled mess
She had knots in her ribbons
And rips in her dress
Her face was brown smudged
Her lips cracked and dry
Her wings were so tattered
She no doubt could not fly.

I welcomed her in
And we sat down for tea
This bedraggled little sprite
And still in shock me
I asked her to tell me
The tale of her plight
She ...

Where Am I?

How did we get here...from there?
How does life start out so wonderfully
but yet go so incredibly badly?
How do you take a child,
lucky enough to have
a loving family, a seemingly
picture perfect childhood,
and have it go, oh so very wrong.
How does a person who grew up
