The Poems (All Locked Up) April 17, 2009

This was the picture I posted yesterday while filling in for [info]laurasalas  on 15 Words or Less Photopoetry. What does this make you think of? Where do you think the keys are for all those locks? Does it make you smile?

 


 

Here are the poems people wrote as a result.


SHACKLED

I’m all locked up,
I don’t know why…
Better to ponder,
than sit and cry…

- Fred Higgins



PICKLOCK'S FINAL EXAM

From experience
one finds that
the key to
most locks
is not
using a key.

LOCKED UP

In this room
feeling locked up
With no key
there's no escape

- Linda Bozzo



Lockdown!

"They're having a party.
Can I go?
Oh, don't be so dramatic.
Just say no."

- Cindyb

 


First Warm Day of Spring

Lock a year
19 years
all clicked free
Key?
one canoe
you
and
six beers.

- Pat Schmatz

 

Passages

In and out.
Or not out?
Who comes?
Who doesn't go?
Scattered.

- Becky Levine



My brain
Without coffee
Locked
In disarray

- Jeannine Garsee



Key to Her Heart

He searched for the key to her heart
Like so many others before him

- Rick Wainright

There are so many stories only you can tell.Tell them, please.

15 words, all locked up
A Monument to Closure

Want an ending?
To zip it up,
throw away the key?

Add yours,
walk away.

CLUTTER

Clutter extraordinaire
Mindset boggles at the thought
Freedom within,
Look deeper,
Maybe! Maybe not!

WHO AM I?



Who am I?I was born on the Cancer/Leo cusp and share a birthday with Ernest Hemingway and Robin Williams. The similarities don't stop there as I can go from depressed to ecstatic without ever passing go. I feel scared most of the time though my friends call me brave and I find it easier to believe in my friends than to believe in my own abilities to make what I want out of my life.

Who am I? A wife, a mother, a daughter, and even, gulp, a grandmother.

Who am I? A writer who never gets tired of playing with words, even when the words are hard to find. A writer of books for children and articles for grown-ups and many things in-between.

Who am I? A motivational speaker, writing instructor, workshop leader and full-time follower of dreams.

Who am I? Read and find out.

"Successful writers are not the ones who write the best sentences. They are the ones who keep writing. They are the ones who discover what is most important and strangest and most pleasurable in themselves, and keep believing in the value of their work, despite the difficulties."
--Bonnie Friedman

"As writers, we must be willing to feel our sadness, our anger, our terror, so we can reach in and find our sweet vulnerability that is just sitting there waiting for us to come back home."
--Nancy Slonim Aronie

"Writers write about what obsesses them. You draw those cards. I lost my mother when I was 14. My daughter died at the age of 6. I lost my faith as a Catholic. When I'm writing, the darkness is always there. I go where the pain is."
--Anne Rice
