I started to write poetry when I was about 60, until then
it was just a few scribblings.
Sometimes it takes me a month to write a poem,
sometimes an afternoon.
I can never recite my poems from memory I always have to read them.

NO THOUGHTS Aug 6, 2012
Very true. It’s amazing how your perceptions change once you truly see reality for what it is.
AN AUTUMN DAY 9/12/12
The first few stanzas reminded me of when I was a kid
and did an early morning paper round. Thanks for the memories

You've gone the whole nine yards,
having drawn a winning card
by using common Idioms.
You don’t throw your weight about:
beat about the bush, or ever shout
the odds, but surely know your Idioms.
They’re a means to clarify what we say,
and truly intended to be that way.
The cat’s pyjamas is a ‘purrfect’ Idiom,
but to put them rationally in a poem:
and by golly, you sure do know ‘em,
shows your grasp of the Idiom.
Nicely done Hazel, it was fun,
to read, and most expertly done.
For you to write a poem with Idioms,
is most definitely the bees knees.
By using such phrases, you’ll please
those who effectively use Idioms
in a descriptive poetic piece.
In writing, an author can release
tension, by using an apt Idiom.
With your lines, you spilled the beans,
though everyone knows what it means:
it being a familiar Idiom.
Many writers, as we often see,
use such phrases happily
unaware they’re an Idiom.
Now I’ll put a cork in it,
and close this poem in a minute,
as I am bored with Idioms.

This was by a fellow poet from Canada name of Denis Barter
I was so glad to be an inspiration..
