P is for…

April 18, 2013

Live poets are also important.

P is for Poetry
A particular passion
Poets, know it
An alluring addiction
Assonance and alliteration
Each word significant
Unlike prose
Imagery inspiring imagination
Figurative features
Lost on the literal
Like failing headlights
On a starless night
While wind whispers
Among tired trees.
Poetry poses problems
Human emotions
Vivisected via verse
Needing not to be dark
Nor flowery, nor abstract,
Poetry simply is 

I had a significant number of poems on my old blog, which I still need to migrate over here. April is National Poetry Month, but any day of the year is the right time to learn a new appreciation for verse. Old or new, high or low, rhyming and metric or not, three-line haiku or thirty-thousand-line epics, whether composed by Shakespeare or your fellow humble blogger; today is an excellent day to read, or even write, a poem.

    Great photo of an interesting movie. It was sad in some parts but “Carpe Diem!” Thanks for your recent comment on my post, I will check out yours and Becca’s review and thoughts on “Fifty Shades of Gray.” Sorry to gross people out on my post.

    Nicely done! You should post more here. Agreed, April shouldn’t be the only poetry month. 🙂 Now if only I could write better poems… =/

    Great post! I’ve rediscovered poetry a bit since landing here on WordPress, and I enjoy it quite a lot.
