Poetry Archive :: Revolution

RESOLUTION: Learn more about the history of Haiku. Maybe buy some books about it and do some reading. Generally, find ways and means by which this form can not be simply refined, but redefined. Maybe do it in another language. Learn from other writers. EXPAND MY HORIZONS. This is a decent five-some to start my … Continue reading Poetry Archive :: Revolution

Poetry Archive :: Resolution

RESOLUTION: Write more about how your poetry is written, and schedule WELL before the day its due to be published... Verse three was a problem: I was forced to improvise, covering my brain's inability to function correctly. https://twitter.com/InternetofWords/status/1080053456918978561 Sorry, there are no planes in this micro-poetry. Maybe I should do something about drones in the … Continue reading Poetry Archive :: Resolution

Poetry Archive :: Calm

Done for the year. Poetry output needs a rethink next year. Don't worry, I'm already on it. Thank you for sticking with me ❤ Calm Surrounded, alone, motorway home: metal boxes full, gift-wrapped journey; glad we left early. Calm storms away, inevitable festive holiday; hooray. Exodus movements, firmament’s guiding star, bulging cars: present tense common … Continue reading Poetry Archive :: Calm

Poetry Archive : Holy

However, as this stands, I'm really proud of it. Holy Moment, silent caress; together, here: holy moments, calm … Continue reading Poetry Archive : Holy

Poetry Archive : Silent

This little diversion into non-rhyming is going very well, thanks very much. Silent This year, alone best choice; direction marked not through light of yonder star. Inns empty, shepherds crooked, drive away Christmas: northwards, following enlightened prophesy. Alone’s not sinful, redemptive festive escape: without tinsel, sparkle, overzealous consumption. Mountains beckon, practical snow, rewarding effort, exploration; … Continue reading Poetry Archive : Silent

Poetry Archive : En Lighten Ment

Most people don't publish the poetry they muck about with, but I'm having fun playing in public. It is a continuing exercise of looking at how words fit into sentences, that rhyming is no longer a requirement but that sometimes, it becomes almost essential to do just that. Nobody has taught me how this happens, … Continue reading Poetry Archive : En Lighten Ment

Poetry Archive :: Silence

This is an interesting time for my poetry. After a long period of introversion and application, this weekly exercise has become a lot more relaxed and informal than at any point in months and yet is far more honest and reflective. The desire to share my feelings via verse is a lot less traumatic than … Continue reading Poetry Archive :: Silence
