Poetry doesn’t have to be challenging, but it does have to explore
the nature and geography of the human condition.
I Love To Write
I love to write poetry, songs and short stories.
I don’t do it for the riches nor fame nor the glories.
I write what I write that’s deep down inside of me.
And what I write I write for the whole world to see.
I like to write about love life and serenity.
And just about any thing that gets into me.
I’ll combine the truth with the fiction
I don’t always use proper diction.
There’s a story a song or a poem in every nook.
Someday I’ll put all of mine in a book.
I like to write what I write in my leisure time.
Sometimes what I write will surprise me and rhyme.
I don’t use long words and I’ll tell you why.
I want everyone to understand the things I imply.
Most all that I write can be read by the whole family.
But beware I’ve been known to write adult fantasy.
I once wrote a story about a bad man turned good.
And I’ve written stories about the mysteries in my neighborhood.
I really like to write about my four legged friends.
And I can keep you in suspense until a love story ends.
If you like what I write… that will please me.
If you don’t, don’t lie and try to appease me.
You see I write what I write because I love to.
When I write what I write that’s what I do.
Poetry is the most versatile of all literary forms,
allowing us the ability to say things that cannot be encompassed in prose.
It can be finished in a moments, unlike the novel, which can take years.
