How can

so soft

burn such
a deep


in my soul?


Laura Eno said...

This can be taken in sooooo many different ways. *laughing*
It can be sexy, endearing...or a puppy's eyes!

Karen from Mentor said...

Yes. *looks enigmatic*

I tweeted it earlier as:

How can eyes/so soft/burn holes/in my soul?

I like it both ways.

Thanks for the poetry love Laura. You're so sweet to me.

*happy sigh*

Anonymous said...

I also love how many different ways this can be interpreted. Well done, lovely poem darling! :)

Karen from Mentor said...

Thanks so much Estrella.
*beams at you*

Laurita said...

Wow. A ton of meaning packed into eleven words. Brilliant. And kinda hot.

Karen from Mentor said...

Just kinda hot?
*looks crestfallen*

But then thinks about the eyes and perks right back up....laughing...

Thank you for your wonderful comment my sweet.
*gives Laurita a smooch*

Rebecca Burgener said...

How can
a poem

so short

leave me

so many thoughts?

Karen from Mentor said...

Loved your echoing comment Rebecca. I have a thing for teachers, and quite a few of them stop in on a regular basis, so I think you'll feel right at home in this space.

And just so you know, here at Miscellaneous Yammering there's always cookies on the counter and milk in the fridge.

*points you toward the kitchen*
Thanks for stopping in.
Karen :0)

Laura Eno said...

You forgot to warn Rebecca not to put her hand in the left-hand container next to the cookie bin...

Karen from Mentor said...

....giggling...hush Laura...she's new...don't want to scare her off.

But, um yeah...Rebecca? Don't do that.

Kaye Barley said...

Karen - I'm loving your poetry - thank you!

Karen from Mentor said...

*looks delighted*

Thanks Kaye.
**Huge smile**

Love this version no less than the previous - and Rebecca's echo, wonderful.

You are a skilled wordslinger, Ma'am. I really enjoy the brevity contrasted with the depth you achieve.

Nice, nice work.

MkCrittenden said...

Hmmmm, nice. You should check out this poetry anthology Im' running. U might like it. Romance for Noobs.

Karen from Mentor said...

Thanks Mark, I'll check it out.

Karen from Mentor said...

Hee! I'm going to introduce myself like that all this weekend Kevin:

"Hi, Karen Schindler...skilled wordslinger..."

Somehow feels like I should be wearing a badge of some kind though.
