Light Verse

I don't consider myself a poet or a versifier, but I am a writer and, as such, my mind is open to all kinds of thoughts. Verses pop in (or out) and I jot them down as they occur, because, like many writers, I keep voluminous notes. Sometimes there's meaning behind my light verse. Sometimes there's not...or maybe I don't remember what brought them on. 

Time
A Wish Can Be
 

 
Time 

Time is an old man 
Staring at the sun, 
Standing in a patch of dirt 
With his breeches on. 

Time is a minstrel 
Playing on a flute, 
Dancing on  a tinker's bell 
In a silver suit. 

Time is an idiot 
Dancing in a space, 
Grinning with each shuffling foot 
Tripping on his own shoe lace. 

-William T. Delamar 1997 
A Wish Can Be

A wish can be a snowflake or a seed.
It can water the dream to succeed.
Will it melt to nothing
Or will it grow to meet the need?

- William T. Delamar 1999
