Reason2Rhyme “Postcard Poem” Featured Poet – Randy Mazie

Congratulations to this week’s poetry prompt random drawing winner, Randy Mazie!  He’s a repeat offender regular contributor who shares his special gift for words at his blog, The Writer’s Village.  His response to the Postcard Prompt is below:

Postcards from the Heart

Still in town.
I needed time to think.
Dropped this down
The chute. Had me a drink.

I need space.
I never did intend
To embrace
A love that would extend

As far as we have gone.
I need this time alone.

As close as PO Box 1378

Take it. I
Completely understand.
How and why
Are questions that command

Time and thought
Without the two, we could
Come to naught
And with the two we should

Gracefully comprehend
The next step or the end.

You know where I am.

Randy Mazie

  1. Dear Karen,

    Poetic recidivism
    Is a delicious crime;
    As tasting yesterday’s lines
    Often prompts today’s great leftovers.

    But Karen,
    If I am to do the time,
    The name is: Mazie
    The meal is Maize.

    Thank you for the honor.
    I enjoy writing and reading Reason2Rhyme.
    And the random-ness of my winning does not exceed
    My enjoyment in participating – Thank you so much!
