According to GK Kingsley, her quest is "to sow seeds that make people think about their lives, with bite size bits of poetry that are accessible to all. Some are humorous, some are thought provoking. But either way, it’s never a long haul trawl through my stuff.”
This poet has a following from around the world, from Australia to Hawaii to Alaska. She publishes a new poem three times a week on her website. I really like 'Double Trouble' and 'Make Life A Breeze', two show pieces beautifully displayed - not just lines of text!
Entitled ‘Love’, this specially written poem seeks to understand that most universal of ideas that touches all of our lives. Enjoy.
Is love all thrills and spills and fun
And feeling you're the only one?
Or does more loom when that is done?
To twist and bind the prize you've won
A patient sigh, reply, a smile
A kindess that is versatile
A loyalty to face the trial
Of life and all that can defile
The plying strings to fend off foes
A bobbin there to share your woes
And you, a fleece for their repose
To counter sadness, juxtapose
No, love's not thrills and spills and fun
But more a lifelong yarn that's spun
Thanks GK - great to collaborate with you, and I wish you a happy World Poetry Day!
