The Fly

The Fly

So here you are again.
You were here a few minutes ago.
What places have you visited,
or should I really know?
I think you should go
before I find the fly swatter
and kill you next time you
happen to come within range.

Give me a quote

Give me a quote

A TV reporter listened carefully,
as the camera rolled and
he quickly wrote down notes
about what the poet had to say.
He said he would like a quote.

The gray-haired man paused
And carefully said,
“This is the way it can be.
There is order in chaos, and such
thing as random certainly.
With out day, there is no night.
I hope this is alright.”

Knock, Knock

Knock, Knock

These hands have spent a lifetime to
Support my country and my family,
To leave an honorable name and legacy.
But now I hear a knock on my door,
A different one than I’ve heard before.
My bones feel like they’re weak,
And the room seems to be a little cold.
They say it’s because I’m just old,
But more than that has changed.
I don’t know who’s on the other side
As I answer the sound in my dreams.
Maybe it’s time for me to go away,
But for now I’ll stay around today.

Excalibur

Excalibur

Editor’s Note: It is part of the King Arthur legend that the future king pulled the Excalibur sword from the stone on Christmas Day.
Excalibur

It won’t hurt you to smile
at me just one time.
I don’t want gifts from you,
not even a dime.
I don’t want to be your lover.
I already have kids of my own.
All I want to do is talk,
and melt your heart of stone.
I can tell you have fears
and feelings locked inside.
To be a man, you have to hurt
and find a place to hide.
You have to feed your pride,
and the badge is your frown.
You are letting the world’s
problems pull you down.
I’d like you to smile,
just for a while and let
me be your friend.
Perhaps this time
won’t ever have to end.

Words and Rings

lsc-t-shirtlogo.jpg

A poem by Brother Kyle Morgan Stewart

Words and Rings

I don’t think a few words and a diamond ring
can make our relationship last counting all
the times we fought and broke up in the past.
We can have differences, but we also need a
common ground where a sound love will grow.
I don’t know if your plans are just an excuse to
hang around, especially when things are good.
Would you want to spend your life with me?

New website logo to honor U.S. military and veterans

Army ET logo
A new website logo honoring the branches of the U.S. Military and veterans is being revealed by the World of Words by Elias Tobias.  The logo will be used during different occasions and will not replace those logos already in use on a regular basis.

Poem of the Week arrives in 2015

Poem of the Week arrives in 2015

breaking-newslogo.jpg

The Poem of the Day has been a daily feature on Twitter and on Facebook by the World of Words by Elias Tobias website since June 19 of this year to increase the visibility of the site on Internet landscape, and the POD has been successful. While the overall ranking of the WOW has decreased, statistics show people are staying on the site longer and reading more as evidenced by a negative bounce rate for the site. Beginning January 2015, the Poem of the Day will become the Poem of the week, with a previously published poem on the WOW highlighted on each Monday. The administrative staff thanks those who are eager to return to the poetry and photography blog on a regular basis. New published poetry will be posted every Friday as it has been the last several years. So go to Twitter at https://twitter.com/PoetEliasTobias or Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/EliasTobiasWorldofWords?sk=wall for the Poem of the Week in 2015.
