Trying to be Sherlock
Scanning the scene
Looking for connections
Linking in between
Crystalline deduction
Shimmer in the weave
Searching for the proof now
For all that we believe

Feel like Dr Watson
Following behind
Have your own true brilliance
Still you’re feeling blind
Oh to just be Sherlock
Even for a day
Washing all the doubts
And all the fears away

  1. Nice one Helen, and don’t we just wish.

  2. I still find it weird that 3 episodes counts as a season for this series.

    this would be amazing , for a day or two, but I think it might get crazy…which is probably why sherlock is a little crazy πŸ™‚ NICE poem πŸ™‚

  4. Great poem. But I’d never want to be Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock who is one of the most detestable characters for me in literature I have read so far. πŸ™‚

    I like the PBS version of Sherlock and don’t mind Jonny Lee Miller’s take on him with Lucy Liu as his Watson. I am very appreciative of your word choices. I think you did an outstanding job on this poem! I would like to be brilliant and crystalline in my thought processes!

    Awesome – I love the BBC series – cannot wait until it starts up again. What is even more exciting for me is sharing it with my 16 year old, who like to have deduction moments – like Sherlock. this is something he never did before watching this series. it has now become a game – fun and a great way to sharpen one’s skill of perception.
