The Woman I Have To Be


I always wondered

how it would turn out

with a smile and a little

smirk at what might



The ages were like

decaded clocks, ticking

out the nowness

and the futureness.


Looking back is better than

looking ahead because you

collected time and put it in a

little satin blue pouch

with a drawstring.

Time talks and seldom

Time talks and seldom walks,
But never stops

Time often jeers, rarely cheers,
It's neither here nor there

Time isn't your friend, at first,
But could be in the end

Time doesn't take sides, it abides
Everyone's actions

Time can't lie, but will pass you by,
If you don't keep a watchful eye

Just messing around. This is an excellent write. Beavis said it best. Succulent, graceful write.

Long days and pleasant nights

You are after my heart, Lady A! I wish could have gotten this thought across so beautifully and succinctly! So much of what I write is looking backward, and so well you have captured what I have swiped at! ;-)

Thanks Beav!

For your wonderful comment and kinship. Succinct has been a long time goal, to keep it tight knit, be as truthy as possible, or whimsical as a fooly raise the brow or make the reader say, "Ahhhhh". I love writing and I love writers, veteran and new. It's a life's work for me. I appreciate mightily your suport and caring ~Stella Crews~

of the past are very useful things or were, they held the inside of the head upright and provided support for the brain and spinal chord. which explains why you are so upright and righteous today and will be tomorrow. Sans boasting, sans self promotion. I get it. It is one of the faces of god. - Your sack will fill with joyous times and love from the writing you share and read on Postpoems, worthy and miraculous Bishwanath. - Prayers for you and all you love - Lady A
