A Few Old Poems for a New Week

Poetry JournalIn my minimalism purge, I came across my poetry journal and thought I would share a few. I feel a little naked doing this, so I probably won’t post a ton. Let me know what you think! Do any of you like to write poetry?

I go through phases. I won’t write at all for months, and suddenly I’ll feel inspired and just scribble out a few for no apparent reason.







a simple smile from you

calms my spirit

yet heats up my body

until it will boil over

if i am further deprived of your touch






just like the waves

of the tumbling ocean

you are unpredictable

sometimes you rush to me

but just as sneakily you pull away

how can i believe that

the pattern will break?

when i suspect that only i will




  1. Ya I do suffer from poetrymania ;). I scribble when I am inspired by any idea . Its a part of me and thats what I love the most . Writing is my love . I loved your poems Jill , especially happiness , its simple and compact . Keep going .

  2. I like your poetry. My poetry goes like this:
    Arlo ate my shoe.
    Why? I haven’t a clue.
    Arlo sucks.
