I Do Not Care

I ponder often what is true
I do
Of what can’t be changed I dare
not care
Never desiring to stumble and fall
at all
Finding myself back to the wall
Life will be easier once I die
but I must confess this to be a lie
I do not care at all

The lesson for a new poetic form is offered up at dVerse Poets Pub by Whimsygizmo today. It’s a fun Spanish form called the Ovillejo. I just had to give it a try. Head on over for the lesson and to read some wonderful poetry, some whimsical and some more serious, in this wonderful form.

  6. Your “confession” at the end feels sweet, maybe a little wistful in your caring. Good work, Linda. 🙂

  12. I admire the twist in the last line ~ Sometimes too much thinking and worrying about the future can be too much ~ Finding the balance is the key ~

    Good work on the form Linda ~ Happy week ~

  16. Linda, this is a strong example of the form! The short staccato lines within lend meaning to your devil-may-care attitude here, also. Well done.
