The Uncommented

We are the uncommented
The uncommented upon are we
We write from passion of lyric, rhythm and beat
In our solitude free, the uncommented those would be we
If our eye should light on a list, our names we will not see
We write from the bursting of images breaking out floating free
Never “kudoed” or “bravoed” or “wowed” or applauded to be
We are the uncommented writing from a place above and within
No need now for any gratuituous critique to begin

Psst.. here’s a small voice as small as a Who
Whispering tiny Seussian words that I hope heard be by you
My voice so secretive-wispy a butterfly’s eyelash would it not touch
As I say... “If you mentioned me once I would not mind very much”


  1. Pearl--this is precious!
    Thanks for sharing with all of us
    Your words here are
    So under-stated but so true!
    These lines are written by poets so you
    Who write so many great poems,
    What to do! What to do!

  2. Thanks for the delightful comment of yours
    Enjoyed the rhyming that from you easily pours!

  3. You won't get platitudes from me, just a "well done".

    Well done Doc.
