Wednesday was poetry day

Annika says that Wednesday is poetry day:

i'm going to try to make Wednesday poetry day here on annika's journal. A great way to start is with my favorite male poet, William Carlos Williams

Well, it’s Thursday already, but in the spirit of yesterday I’ll post one of my own poems.

If I could dwell within a poem
Timeless beauty my world
Curling path turning inward
Disappearing into the mist

If I could dwell without a poem
Cast about by the winds
Tossed on the byways of life
Striving for the unattainable

But I do not wish to live that which is not life
Indifference, my refuge, is my adversary
So I am left, like a cup without a saucer
With no place to rest
