For your eyes only!!

For your eyes only!!

A Poem by Norman223

When writing new verse for this site
 My wife won't let me recite
Them to her, 'cos  she  said
"Wait till I'm in bed,
As  I'm not sitting up half the night".

Hello Norman!😊

I could relate with this piece of yours very well, since I've faced this unintreatedness of common people, non-writers to be specific towards our writings often, but I smile, chuckle and let them do so, because it's neither easy to be the 'common them' nor its Easy to be a what we are as 'writer/poet'.😊

Thankyou for writing & sharing this.

Regards,
Saumya.

This is beautiful. We all must learn to appreciate art.. anytime during the day or night.. art lets your heart spill entirely

Even when you are writing a short fun ditty like this, you convey more than just your surface message . . . I love the playful connection you show us that exists between you two! I love these glimpses into a relationship to show us how it feels comfortably blissful after all those years!

I believe our spouses admire what we do from afar. Reading poetry, I feel, has become a lost art.

What a shame!

This made me smile. So often our loved ones resist listening to what we write and its like 'No not another one'. No worries. We have our poet friends. 😊

Thank you for your condolences Divya. My wife is a botanist, so she retaliates by long dissertations.. read more
This is too good, Sir :-)
I should learn the art of limerick writing from you.
Poets go through a lot to do what they want to but that's where fun lies otherwise everything would be so boring.
Thanks for sharing!

It's a great remedy for insomnia Kathie. Not only for me, but also for my listeners.

About
At the age of 86, I use the challenge of writing, as an optimistic attempt to delay senility. I prefer humour, as while I can still laugh, I feel that I'm succeeding. more..
