Throwback Friday – Verbosity – Eugenia

52368-Music

 

There’s no simplicity with verbosity

and the gasp I can’t grasp

Yet a mind with great velocity

eases the struggles of a task

Wordiness perceived as baloney?

their true meanings misplaced

Speechless words often a novelty

especially when used to save face

Methinks it best to act responsibly

keep it short, crisp and concise

Let’s not forget the value of honesty

its benefits mingle with good advice

Costly moments taxed by grandiosity

measures of time are not ours to waste

A gander at me –
I enjoyed a dedicated career in the insurance industry for over 20 years being rewarded both professionally and personally. Now it’s time for me to follow my dreams by doing things I enjoy…spending time with family, learning, sharing, traveling, writing poetry and encouraging others to pursue their goals. My writing and creative endeavors can be found at my blogs, Eugi’s Causerie (And so it goes…) and PoetryPalette (Poetry, a seasonal state of mind), where I have gathered a following of kindred souls who share my passion for writing. I have authored Seasoned Delights, A Haiku Collection and Mama, me and Mother Nature. I am also a published author on Spillwords.

This piece is one of several of my published poems l refer to as “a shoulder pad attitude”.

  1. Lovely piece! Reminds me of a quote I read this morning (attribution unknown) “I must apologize; if I had more time I would have written a shorter letter.” It takes time and effort to find the best words and to use them sparingly. Thank you for the reminder!
