The Place I Intend To Be

guest blogger

by Suzy Wordmuser:

Chasing rainbows

such a pointless task

pretty as they are

there’s nothing to hold

just a fleeting moment

a desire for something

that never was

could never be

would not satisfy

my human mind

my body of flesh

I never run

to find  the worthless

I pursue

with slow intent

those things

that have value

that make sense to me

and have become my world

My imaginings

are never empty

or fleeting

they are unbroken plans

a vision

made from years

of hard work


from nothing

ending with


That place I intend to reach

I surely will

  1. Thank you so much for posting this poem Cori! 🙂 I did receive your email some time ago, I’m so sorry I didn’t get back to you! I remembered and forgot ten times or more. Most times I remembered I was either just about the leave the house, in the bath or tucked up in bed! 🙂 I have good timing in my remembering! 😉 Emails kind of get buried under the pile of new ones which doesn’t help me to remember to reply!

    I see this post has 4 Facebook likes. I think that’s more than I’ve ever had on my blog for my own poetry! Pablo Neruda’s poem has 6 Facebook likes on mine – everybody likes him! 🙂

    Oh and also, I think you left me a message at Facebook which I read in my email – not sure where to find it on your Facebook now. I think you asked me if my Facebook was a personal one or a fan page – something like that anyway. Well, it was a personal one originally set up to accompany a blog. But because I had so many problems using it (posts disappeared – pages locked up and locked my computer too) I just abandoned it. But I’ve noticed a lot of changes on there recently, and it seems to be OK at the moment. So for now it is a fan page I suppose – whatever one of those really is?! But I don’t have any fans – how deluded am I?!!! 😆

    It’s good to be back, and I hope you are keeping OK? Here goes another year of blogging! 😀

  2. I’m glad I could post it 🙂 I still have your other two poems that I’m saving for future use – if that’s still okay?
    It is hard to keep up with emails. Sometimes I put it off too long – and then it becomes a chore to go through. Most of my emails are junk mail so that’s an easy clean-up 🙂
    I will see if I can find your FB page. I’m on there rather too much. I’m hoping the novelty will wear off soon but so far… eh, not so much. 🙂

  3. My Gmail email gets clogged with post info from Wattpad (writers website) they don’t have a reliable on-site notification system, so you have to rely on your email to know if anyone has commented, replied or posted new stuff. The list can be very LONG! 😦 I only go on there occasionally, I wonder if it’s worth it sometimes!!

    As long as you enjoy Facebook that’s all that matters really. I’ve yet to learn how to enjoy it – or even be on it enough really! I was wondering how to get my Facebook to show to the public like you and many others I know have. I’ve got all my settings set to public, but I’ve never been able to see it logged out, and now I can’t even bookmark to see the front page that would normally have my name on it and request for you log in to see it. I get nothing but the plain log in page – weird! When you opened your Facebook did you choose a commercial page, or something like that, instead of a personal one? Mine was just a personal one, and I’m wondering if that’s why it’s not completely public. Sorry to ask such tedious questions, but I’m asking around just to see if I can solve the problem. Otherwise I may have to start again.

    Oh yes, post the other poems when you’re ready! 😀

  4. You have to have a personal account first. So I have one under my official birth certificate name – Corina Lee (Wyoming area if you want to find me when you’re on). I use that for personal (as personal as you can get on a social media site) stuff like family and church stuff. I usually post pictures on this one and I try not to overly post.
    Because I also have a fan page – the one linked to my blog – ck’s days. I post on this daily, usually more than daily, and my blogs link to this (when it works right). It’s different than a personal page. Nobody else can post to it (they can comment on your posts) and you really only see your posts (not a wall like on a personal page).
    I don’t have a lot of fans – most of my fans come from my personal page (family and friends) but I still think it’s fun. It let’s me be a little more silly I guess because I’m not me – I’m ck. So, I try to make people laugh and I’m silly. I also post extra “behind the scenes” stuff about my blogs.
    Hope this was helpful – I’m still learning the in’s and out’s of fb myself 🙂

  5. As for it not being public – I’m not understanding your question. If you log out – it will take you to the log in page. You have to log in to access it.
    If you’re wondering what it looks like to others the best way is to look on one of your friend’s wall. Then you can see what your posts look like publicly. A word of advice though, you may not want your personal page set to public. I have mine set to friends of friends and that is sometimes too much. I have my fan page set to public though. Just a thought…
