A Love Of Words

“…fine love poetry

tends to be written

when the object of

one’s affection is

at a safe distance;

also,

it often reflects

a love of words

more than a love of women…”

go

no wait

maybe we can

make up our minds

indecision

.

Haiku:

.

colorful rainbow

natures eternal promise

life giving water

.

Poem:

.

modern times demand modern poetry

how is that done with old fashioned words

must we reinvent a modern psychiatry

easier to just smoke some old fashioned herbs

.

can the poet create a new set of feelings

make his message more obscure

manufacture words with new meanings

stoop to using semantics that are impure

.

the easiest motive is to be yourself

trust God that he made you unique

be honest, the best poem is oneself

can you live with your own critique

.

everything happens in God’s time

the poets acceptance is declared in his rhyme

How The World Works


.

“I wouldn’t be surprised if poetry –

poetry in the broadest sense,

in the sense of a world filled with

metaphor, rhyme, and recurring

patterns, shapes, and designs –

is how the world works.

The world isn’t logical;

it’s a song.”

silent

invisible waves

nothing to hear

song of the universe

blessed tradition

celebrating the harvest

appreciation

Poem:

.

poetry is a song
rhyming, lyrical, meant to be sung
meant to educate, to entertain
to flow easily off of the tongue
some aimed at the masses strong
others too obscure to mean anything
best are those with which you can hum along

.

poetry is a song
striking its chords on heart and nerve
for the writer it can be anything they want
for the reader a brand new learning curve
ideas that dance, words that prance
somber and dark or fluffy cloud light
best are those whose theme is romance

,

poetry is a song
stories that live as long as the language does
heroes and villains, the abused and the innocent
whatever it was and always how it is
some do their work even though rhymeless
God said they all needed to be written
the best, the best are those that are timeless
