A Strong Weaving - Poem by Lynn W. Petty

Some lives are made with burlap string,
Some lives are spun with silken thread,
But you wove mine a strong weaving,
From strands of pounded gold instead.

    Lovely rhythm in this poem. It flows really well and the last line is just right for an ending. Delightful to read.
    Love Ernestine

    could i have a piece of YOUR life? i could use the cash.


    my life parts are from a junk yard.
    that's why some are particularly hard.
    but they're stuck together with spittle...
    from former quarterback Y. A. Tittle,
    so each day i advance.....an additional yard.
