Invitation to The Party

I have nothing to bring to this party
these arms were not made for
holding, handing, helping

I have nothing to bring to this party
this silk was not made for
donning, dressing, draping,

I have nothing to bring to this party
except glittering jewels on velvet night
and they are not so much some giddy gift as a warning

Not so much glittering night, but gorgeously close on emerald green, image curtesy of http://www.pdphoto.org

have a happy healthy and productive week everyone


A.J. Ponder's books are available through Rona Gallery, Amazon, Paper Plus and good Wellington bookstores.

PS come into the parlour said the spider to the fly....so if you enjoy spider poetry why not check out my spider poetry portal, featuring my own work and Emily Dickinson, Walt Whitman, E.B. White, JRR Tolkien, and more!


  1. Hi Alicia,
    At last I can get into your comment box...I tried and tried last week...blogger eh. This is a great concept ...very clever. For free photos try this site
    pdphoto.org-run by Jon Sullivan. :-)

    1. Helen - you are so sweet, I know how frustrating blogger can be :/ What a great site - unfortunately nothing exactly what I want for this poem - but I can definitely see myself using some of the amazing pictures :) Sorry I've been so slack with TP these last few weeks and now you (and Penelope) are making me feel so guilty - so must get back to at least trying to follow my fav poets again :)
