Poetry
that's too obtuse
will leave you
even more confused
before your hurting head
comes loose
give it a boost
read Dr. Seuss.

Don re HTS - always good to get positive feedback - will be heading off to the Spoons later for me daily slurpo as the Aussies might say. Better I make sure there's no Kango poo on the pavement though - wouldn't want to slip up. You never know with my local town what's going on with all the whirring cranes - ever the building site is Woking - you want to take a look at the place - always something to write about here that's for sure or do I mean gripe about. Whatever. Cheers. P 😎

Unfortunately I'm lacking
a lucky charm
Also I'm lacking
a snoring alarm

With thunderous snoring
I'm fearful of harm
Unfortunately I'm lacking
a port in a storm.

Thank you for commenting on Marbles Don - appreciated. There's another poem about marbles somewhere in the making - the names of different types such as glarnies, if I remember correctly. They were the best kind and I hated losing those. Costly too then. P.

My mind went down
a one way street
I was hit head on
by an idea
but now I am being ticketed
for operating a poem
without poetic license.

Hi Dev and Don
I do appreciate your posts.
I may have left the back-door open in this poem.
The shape of some light, on a surface through window glass, can be fancifully described as such.
And Dev pardon my use of "To clarify" that upon retrospect came across as a rebuff - far from it. It was a genuine request to enquire.

The legs and her legs.

Cheers lads.
Tommy

Don,
Thanks for the compliment on my rant
Sometimes I rhyme, sometimes I can't
For the times in which I do
Are inspired by ones like you


Have a good day, Don!

Having read mine, you know how delighted I'd be with yours!

I am so new, dare I make a suggestion? Well...You use "progress" as a noun in the second line. That requires stress on the first syllable. If you wrote the line with "progress" as a verb, you'd move the emphasis to the second syllable. Something like this: "Trying to progress,"

If I'm being gauche, I'll grovel.

Hi Don, it's a strange one - there's no telling which creations will resonate with people and which ones might not; it's so unpredictable but like you say, irrelevant really.

The act, the release and the creation are the key. Writing is such a rewarding creative endeavour and reading other's creations - with all their eccentricities 😉 - constantly surprises and engages. I really enjoy your style and voice and always keep an eye out for your work. T.

re 'A freedom to express'

The ability is not the right; without neither the voice nor the ability to write, the righteous are diminished. I think we are broadly in agreement. Tommy

I am basically a "nice" person.
but I am often misunderstood,
Like most poets I am not recognized
in my own time.
Only death will give me fame.
However I decided against it.
Once it occurs,
You can't come back from it.

Thanks for your comment on "Lasting Love".
We all search for it.
Some are lucky enough to find it.
I'm one of them and i consider myself blessed
to have found her.
I hope you find your lasting love someday.
