Stray thoughts

July 21, 2010
The misty quiet roars delicately.
Lonely as a ghost in a room
full of living people.
Crowded as a room
empty of paintings.
Crackle, crackle
in my ear.
Unbeknownst to you,
I am a writer,
a poet,
a madwoman.
But you rush past,
oblivious to the creeping
beauty all around.
Ears stuffed with money.
Or lost time,
if that is what you prefer.
I am a wanderer around purpose-
A Butterfly among ants.
I know what my destination is,
the question is,
do you know yours?
Stray thoughts,
flit through,
never to be seen again.

I don't get this poem. :(

That's super cool that you worked at an art gallery. :)

I've had my work up at Boston University's art gallery. :) It was a drawing of a sneaker, don't ask, I didn't choose to draw a sneaker, but that was the assignment.

Poetry doesn't often make sense, I wrote a poem about that once, but I don't think I posted it on here.

That's amazing, sneaker drawing or no :) I rather wish our art gallery had more diversity, artist and art wise.

Thank you!                                (because I don't consider myself to be   that good of an artist)

Have you ever posted any of your art on here? Apparently the Boston University's art gallery thought you were pretty good :)

Nope, but I'll get around to it. :)

Ah, Ms. Stargirl! This poem is simply phenomenal, and I cherished every line. 'The misty quiet roars delicately' is a favorite among other favorites. I shall cut my praise short (which is unfair to you) and say wonderful job!

You work in an art gallery? That would seem interesting... maybe not, though.

:) Thank you so much! I so very enjoy all of your comments. This is one of the works of which I am very proud of.

Yes, I work in my town's local co operative art gallery. Rather boring at times, and it doesn't get much traffic, but I love playing my flute, singing, and dancing in it :)
