Following Suit


I logged on to WordPress tonight
and found many short and sweet poems in my reader.
I was able to read them precisely because they were so short,
because I didn’t have to further click to open the original post,
because all the words were right there, at one glance.

Does this make me lazy or just practical?
Other writers must know the secret
about their work getting read if it’s short enough…

I’m not looking back.

I’m following suit.
I hope you enjoy this poem,
but I’ll understand completely if you don’t.

I would love for it to mean something,
but won’t mind if it doesn’t.

Either way, take deep, slow breaths,
and enjoy this life of yours,
as a child looks up at the stars in the night sky
and wonders…
