Bad Poets


We talk

so abstractly

about poetry

because all of us

are usually

bad poets.”


― Friedrich Nietzsche






picture painted

ideas and opinions

verses now being created



Haiku: (In reverse 7-5-7,  only the bad poet takes poetic license.)


the babbling brook speaks volumes

fed by winter snows

rushing down to the ocean


Poem:   Highly Overrated  (My attempt at writing a bad poem)


a stream of conscience
writing what appears
in the minds eye
not seeking the rhyme or why
just giving the feelings
wings that can or may be attached
to the time and place of their origins

coming up for air
catching another breath
before diving again into
the unconscious realm of
smokey clouds, that on passing
allow glimpses of sunlight and clarity
to peak through

drifting along on the pleasant dreams,
fantasies that makes this world bearable,
trying to ignore the necessary formalities,
meditating in silence as the
world passes me by,
alas, reality is very very highly overrated . . .

Moral: Don’t take yourself too seriously.
