Poets Rally Week 44 Perfect Poet Award

Thanks, Jingle, for the award!

Before I discovered blogging, I was wondering where I can put my poems on-line. I thought of putting it in a personal website but it was too much work (those were the days of manual coding )Then I found Blogger, and as the old cliche goes...

I am posting this old poem for the award. I wrote this poem, expressing my desire to find a medium to show my works. Before I grow old. :)

rust biting on hard joints
some say you don't look
a day over forty
lies are sweeter on the ears
damn, my left knee hurts again
i have, how many, five?
old notebooks of
in fading pencil
to etch to .htm format
       any luck ?
in how many, five, ten years ?

time is short & the water rises.

Congrats and well deserved, dsnake. :)

I might reopen a writing blog again someday I think. I came to realise the best place to store one's work is online -- it seems hard to lose things on the internet. I just found a website I made 10 years ago on Internet Archive and I thought it was gone for good. :D

hey Liz,

i really hope that you would start writing again. :)

it's scary, isn't it, hard to lose things on the internet? :) i have an old website too, it's still there but i have stopped updating it. and it's still getting visitors, omg! i thought of deleting it, but it's the first functioning website i created, and mostly by manual coding, so i am sort of reluctant to let it go. :)
