Unfinished

This poem

would have turned poets into rock stars,
renewed the human spirit,
and cured cancer . . .

but I got distracted.

For Theme Thursday

I don't know why I keep getting distracted too, but it is getting harder and harder to get anything done. I think I need earplugs, an eye mask, a room with nothing in it, and then I might not get distracted, but then again I would get nothing done either.

Well I know your poetry would have been great if you had been able to write it, and the singers would have turned it into a hit, but at least we here at Theme Thursday know what you mean because we have all been so distracted this week. Happy Theme Thursday.

God bless.

I am such a person. :)

Could have done great things. Wish I went to art school. Probably all mothers feel this way, though. They ARE doing great things but just don't know it.

That's one thing that writers never run out of--excuses on why they can't write.

I couldn't help but laugh! I love your sense of humor in every poem I have read of yours.
