Or A Dime

watching those grains of life,


thru the glass,

counting down your remaining time,

we give pennies,

for thoughts,

not me,

I want a dime!!

a penny’s worth,

doesn’t yield much,

but a dime,

gives something to touch!

and in this time,

over and over,

with rhyme,

my dime,

opens the door,

where want is for more;

and one thing is sure,

the penny thought,

will not have brought,

what the dime has begot;

so, watch the grains,

dare not glance away,

don’t be thieved of your dime,

when it’s only a penny,

you must pay!!

yet don’t ignore,

that open door,


you’ll settle on a penny,

for your thoughts,

and nothing more!!

Thank you for reading, and I ask,

Penny For Your Thoughts??

  • My thought was that you were gonna finish this poem with the ending line ghat they provided for the Arid Challenge! There you go! Where's my penny? No wait, I want a dime! Lol! Loved your poem!

    I think this is a great poem. Very well-written. I'm thinking what my next one will be. Maybe I should have gone with fajitas tonight because I am stuffed from the pizza we ordered. Think I'll watch the Boondock Saints tonight when my hubby comes in. The time change is this weekend, isn't it? I hate time change, grrr. Wonder if this is a dime's worth or not?

    Hmmmm... I wonder what a buck's worth would be. Interesting train of thought here, buddy.
