She Has A Thing – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Granite – Word of the Day


A wonderful piece of granite, neatly balanced, a sea of pink wildflowers in the background, Leda Reserve. Granite specifically refers to igneous rock, though it has been used to describe other forms of rock too. But granite is also used to describe character and personality – that a person might be determined or resolute.


She Has A Thing

She’s not entirely certain,
though she’s absolutely resolute,
determined to a fault,
some would say quite stubborn,
but I could never say that!
She just has a thing about paintings,
they must be hung just right,
so measure once,
then measure twice,
double check,
O no, more to the right,
hmm, let’s see,
Yes, that’s right,
okay, now drill,
and so it goes,
an ordered life.

    this line surprised a chortle out of me, laughing:
    “some would say quite stubborn,
    but I could never say that!”


  5. Hey Paul, have you been aware that Michael over at OIKOS publishing, has been reblogging your poems? At least 5-6 of them today alone.

  6. Loved this Paul!! Made me laugh! But? There is something to be said for doing it right the first time. I hate rework more than taking extra time in the beginning!
