Lost

Dont know if I have mentioned it but I write (bad) poetry. Here is one I wrote when I was supposed to be reporting on some feminist lecture recently. I know its not good but what the heck....to grow I have always believed that you need to expose yourself to the elements. Remember, ...comments are free (part of a journalism quote).

LOST

Down the lane...
Lost a toy
Dont know where
Lost a coin
Slipped off my hand
Lost a tooth
Fell off the stair
Lost a tear
To a scrapped knee.

Further up the road...
Lost ignorance
To many a learned lesson
Lost a soul
To many a sweet word
Meanings
Lost in translation
Now lost a smile, a laugh
To a memory fresh as dew
That refuses in life
To lose itself.
