Florida Sinkhole: Thoughts About Writing

Big Dismal Sink at Leon Sinks Geological Area, November 20, 2011

The depths to which you've sunk before,
The heights you scale today
These things are fit to talk about
The future's not okay

The water level in your swamp
Will drop before your eyes
The world made aware of it
Will cut it down to size

The vast majority of viewers
Wish you nothing but the best
It's the malcontent will take you down
The Heathcliff, hand in vest

It's nothing new and often seen
This saprophytic rite
The feeding on the fallen log
It's natural...all right?

So keep it light and funny
And laugh away the dark
Distract the negativity
Don't feed it any snark

The sign you've sent the malcontent
Is clear for all to see
The all who wish you always well
Enjoy your cup of "T."


  1. Life's too short to worry about the negative people out there. It's taken me a very long time to accept that, though.

    Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, W2W, and congratulations to your DIL on becoming a US citizen!

  2. I use to rise to those who came by my blogs to tear down and be nasty...needless to say I like writing too much to let that last!

    Like you I believe there will always be those kind so I now ignore them and enjoy writing and those who take the time to comment! (Thanks for coming by and commenting too!!!) :-)

  3. This is an enigmatic poem, disseminating some messages regarding life here and there. And the mention you made about Bronte's Heathcliff was a striking one..

  4. Apparently Florida & MN. have something else in common. A small town ten miles from here proudly proclams itself a "the sinkhole capitol of the world." Whoda thought. I've pretty much expungedn the negative, paranoid, angry people from my life. Life is too short and I feel much better for it. And congratulations to your beautiful daughter in law. Apparently it much like adoption. Way too complicated and expensive. Still worth it in the end.... :)

  5. what a delightful little poem! Here's to those who wish us well, and wow. What a sink hole! A friend of mine had a small one appear in her front yard--! Scary. :p

    Hope you had a divine holiday~ <3

  6. Hi W2W .. glad I kept this to read .. what a fascinating place and that saphroptropic cascade is amazing - I've never seen one remotely that large.

    Sink holes - lots appearing as our climate changes -

    Thanks for showing us .. great to see - Hilary
