Beautiful And Bold

After a good rest
I’m ready to return
The mind is clear
Filled with new words
With a backload of poems
Beautiful and bold
From the simplest life
To the one we behold
Some poems controversial
What I been told
Life’s not perfect
You have to go with the flow
If you take the beauty
You have to take the bold
Putting new words together
Sets up the poem
To the direction it goes…

  1. It’s common to see controversy everywhere, like food-gaining body mass, love -jealousy and so on… Good poem!

  2. I have been reading Gary’s poetry, for a few years now & have purchased, one of his books. Gary, in my opinion, is a good writer. He writes about, everyday things & life’s obstacles. In his poem, Bold And Beautiful, he is reflecting on what a poets field of view, would look like.

  3. The poem is “life” in general. Everything it says is what we do daily. I love it in it’s simplicity and truth.

  4. Enjoyed poem. Like the idea of rest clearing the mind for new words.

  5. I love this, it speaks to the heart… especially “go with the flow”.. like the river running over the rocks at the shore… the shore maybe rough, but it flows on.

    • Mr. Smallwood is absolutely wonderful to read his works. Not only do the words flow but at times you can close your eyes after reading it and feel as if you were there.

      • Your poems are very beautiful, truly from the heart. Love then they mean a lot to me you are really gifted.

  6. Great food for thought. Wonderful combination to be both beautiful and bold. I like it a lot.

  7. Gary, like usual your words flow like water. Your thoughts give us time to ponder..
