Tuesday (Magpie) Tale . . .



Yes, I won
but often winning
is an empty cup
two handles
but nothing in it
no one to hold
the other side
keep it from tilting
when you try
to lift it and celebrate
your victory


This poem is a Magpie Tale. 
There are no prizes, of course, 
but if you like to have a little fun with words, 
write your own and add it to the collection --

Ta ta!

How true this can be, and always nicer to have someone to share it with.

Yes, always good to remember it is people who matter the most.
