  3. I liked the rhymes tucked throughout, especially "rattled" with "dismantled".

  6. It feels good when contentment shadows the frowns! And good to bring out those memories too. Beautiful writing.

    1. WabiSabi, and what becomes cherry on the cake is the way you overcome over those frowns. :)
      As i portrayed, the speaker here has found happiness in mere glittering objects around him and not any further seeking personal attention the way he did in the past.
      Stay happy, live-louve-laugh !
      Peace :)

  7. I liked this poem... the glitter I missed is now in these waters... that reminds me that even the things we miss at the time can be retrieved and reflected upon. Nothing gets lost if we take the time to look for it.

  10. The rule for Poetry Pantry is one link per person. Please, next week, link your name (as others do) instead of names of poems. I removed two extra links. And, if I am not mistaken, you really did not go around making visits to other poets, though you wished for people to visit THREE poems of yours. Does that seem right?

    2. yes, I do know you are new here; and I do want to encourage you to participate....and using the same 'name' each time you post is a good idea, so people get used to seeing you! Also, it is good to visit as many as you can, ESPECIALLY if someone visits your blog. I enjoy your poetry and will definitely look for you again! Take care!
