This is where I will be posting the topic of the week. The topic of the week is where there will be a topic each week where you can choose to write about and post is in the "poetry" discussion.

Well, an example could be childhood. The topics will mainly be about things in reality or in perspective, but I will throw a few creative ones in there too, Like "Post-Humankind"

Alrighty then....new topic to write about this week is "Disowning"


message 11: by Gene (new)

Gene (GeneDoty) | 7 comments Disowning: departure, rejection, denial. The son he never admitted knowing. The door closed and locked. Windows shaded. Face averted.

to be recycled:
books gathered in a past life
melt in the rain

Gene (GeneDoty) | 7 comments Here's a take on "encouragement to a stranger":


If I am the stranger
who will encourage me?
Who will wave instead
of flipping me off?
If I give encouragement
to a stranger, then
I am also a stranger,
so it is stranger
encouragement
than we knew.

(I did mine basically based on the idea that you don't know who's having a bad day, who might even kill themselves. If we're all more loving we'd save so many more lives. (view spoiler))


It's one of those days
we all have them.
But today is like no other.
The world seems to hate you,
it's all the same dull bore,
the same dull pain that
follows you around
like the memories haunting you.
You begin to see in black and white
and you dream of ropes and pills.
And then,
a single smile,
a wave,
a long hug,
a nice word to tell you,
you are cared about .
And suddenly,
the sun is brighter,
the clouds are lighter,
and so is your soul.
And you go home in peace,
and come back tomorrow,
instead of at the morgue.

Gene (GeneDoty) | 7 comments Very nice. And we can't tell from external appearance what a person is really experiencing.
