If I just want to chat?

Douglas Blair 1951 (London)



Imagine that.
Your welcome and invitation
To shoot the breeze.
You, busy Webmaster
Your willingness to please.
Extended to
A forum’s newbie.
Me.
Lovers of poesie.
Still much not
In the bud.
Sounds with a thud
Or twenty dollar absurd word.
But still pulling the oars.
Midst chores.
And a wandering bunch
Of delighted grey cells.
Brought to the pen.
Again.
