Where Are You Red O'Mara?   - Poem by Ruby Honeytip

I've been searching high and low,
For a poet I've never laid eyes on,
Someone who turned my grey skies to blue,  
Poetry my smile could rely on. 
I worry that something may have gone awry,
For comments from my friend 
It seems have run dry. 
Maybe life has led Red,
Away down many different roads,
Or maybe he's just pissed off,
With broken verification codes! !
I'm not worried, for around the corner he's lurkin' 
Dreamin' up a sequel to 'How The Big Mac Got His Gherkin' 
He's not gone forever it will all be alright 
I still have 'One Day If I Could Spend The Night' 
And another I love that rhymes with alright 
Is the whimsical musings in ' Slow Movin Tights' 
(I couldn't choose between my favourites o_O Imagine my plight)  
Where are you Red?  
I hope you're ok 
I hope the pull of creation 
Brings you back my way 
(one day) xxx

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Maybe if we all write a poem for Red, he'll write one back: -)
Verification codes on this site have become very difficult to navigate. Sometimes it takes 30 mins to post new poems...grrrrr.

    You are right about the verification codes Ruby. They are doing me shed in, and it's a new one. As for Red I don't know but maybe if we all shout his name at the same time he might hear us. One. Two. Three....... RED WHERE ARE YOU? (Report) Reply

    Yes Ruby I have felt sad Red is not about. How special you are to write this. He will be back to continue his talent. Come on Red. (Report) Reply

    What a great poem to find a missing poet that you've come to love on a site, hoping he is alright. I felt
    that very same way about a person who used to always have such great comments on my poems on
    another site, and when he suddenly stopped, I was so worried and tried to find out if he was ok. But I
    did not do it in such a creative way! ! ! After many months, seems I suddenly received a message from
    him, WHEW! ! ! ! ! and I do hope that you do too from your missing person one day! ! ! ! ! Great write! (Report) Reply

    We’ll bat our eyelashes and wear black mascara
    We’ll promise hot pashes like Scarlett O’Hara
    Come back Red O’Mara (Report) Reply
