Mad-hatters, No Matter the Season

On “Weekly Prompts” the Wednesday Challenge is, AUTUMN MAGIC. Please go and visit their fabulous site by clicking >> Here and the below poem is my response to their ‘prompt’ ..

Mad-hatters, No Matter the Season

The latter of matter

Did not scale the ladder

The origin of matter 

Is in our hearts pitter-patter

Matter is neither flatter nor fatter 

β€œWhat does it matter 

If we are all mad-hatters”?

We are but leaves and twigs of the ground 

Awaiting nature’s beckoning sounds

G'day, and welcome to my blog site. My name is Ivor Steven, I live in Geelong, Australia. I'm an ex-industrial chemist, and a retired plumber, and a former Carer of my wife(Carole), for 30 years, who suffered from severe MS. I Write poetry about those personal thoughts, throughout and beyond my life as a Carer. I've been blogging for over 2 years, and writing poems for 19 years. Of course a lot of my poems are about my favourite subject Carole, but since I've been blogging my writings have become quite varied, humourous, mystical, observational, and even a few monster/horror poems.

  1. I’m sorry my first comment disappeared but at least the LIKE stayed in place. I think I said that I loved fun poems with or without hidden meanings. And I thanked you for taking part in our challenge.
    Thank you Ivor. πŸ™‚
