Random Thoughts of a Simple Mind: In Twenty Words Or Less
Literally thousands of books on poetry can be found. Some on love, some about little children. Then, there are some books each containing poems on a wide variety of different subjects.
So, what makes this book any different? Well, for one thing, each poem in this book consists of no more than 20 words. Yes, very short poems. Some words are hyphenated. I consider them as a single word. Anyway, keeping all poems short with less than 20 words was intentional, just to be different.
This book of poems is divided into several chapters whereby many different areas of interests are categorized and represented. Some are funny, some are serious. And, I must admit, some don't make much sense at all. Then later I would ask myself, "what in the world was I thinking?" But, I had fun writing them so I left them in anyway.
When you read each individual poem, draw your own conclusion as to what each means. Some of you may understand them immediately. Some of you may like them, some of you may not. Then again, you may ask yourself, "what in the world was he thinking?"
