Smoke Rings



Smoke rings around my finger,
Deep in pensive thought am I.
Coffee stains upon paper sheets,
Where my feeling scribed now lie.

Pearls of words strung together,
Recount images of distant meorable past.
Bleed together in hazen vision,
By mood and moment now cast.

A feeling of gutted emptiness,
Evoked by each I scrawl.
What is purged and paged,
Is but smoke rings after all.

Mike Williams Claim this poet

I am a painter, poet, and writer from Texas. I have a large volume of poetry, which I hope to publish in an anthology. I am best known for my poem 'Extrairdinary Mind'. I am also working on several novels and short stories at the moment. I write a wide variety of genres. I also draw, paint fresco, oils, and mixed media. My most famous piece is 'Psychedelic Cows', which placed 1st at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. It became the inspiration for the sculptures that followed.
