Do you like it? Do you read it?

Favourites?

Have some to share for Twitterlings to read?

(5/6 stanza max for post length :3)

-------------------------------------------------

Rose petals rise in the arches of my feet
Crushed velvet between my toes
Breathe, my heart that skips a beat
Snowflakes are god’s prose

That was lovely Willow, I really liked the line: Glittering, sparks, the dying embers glow :3

@Lorraine, yes but this post was to post it here...

G.J. Griffiths (gjgriffiths) | 3 comments Is this dystopian poetry?

A View from the Cliffs

Will you go with me now
To the country?
To the side
That should be green.
To the place
Where beasts that we hear of
Are now
No longer seen.

Will you stare with me now
At the azure?
At the sky
That turns litmus red.
At the air
That was home to the skylark,
Whose song
May soon be dead.

Will you swim with me now
In the ocean?
In the spume
That spawned Life on Earth.
In the home
Of the whale and the herring,
Now oil's
Drowned Neptune's mirth.

Lovely :] I really like the lines:

At the azure?
At the sky
That turns litmus red.

that really spoke to me :3

Lovely! :] I find writing poetry very calming :]


message 10: by D.A. (new)

D.A. Botta (dabotta17) | 3 comments I read a lot of Plath and Dickinson. Especially when I'm blocked.

I've published two collections so far (I forget how many poems - 150ish) and working on my 3rd collection. I dance between formalist and freeverse.

samples on my site if interested.

D.A. Botta (dabotta17) | 3 comments my latest:

Doomsday Waves

All I have done is 
Poured my soul 
Into a crystalline bottle
And sealed it shut

With honey-colored wax
Tossed it into the sea
Held my breath - blue -
Waiting for reply

From the mad thrashing
Doomsday waves

Wow, I love it!


message 13: by Daisy (new)

Daisy Row (daisyrow) | 10 comments I like poetry that sneaks up on you. I don't actually seek it out, but some times are verse just stands out and grabs you by the heart.

The SWF in May this year, were responsible for posting poetry on the side of garbage trucks. So you'd be standing there waiting to cross the road and you'd find yourself reading a random piece of poetry... I loved hearing people beside me comment on it.

Amazing - turning garbage trucks into conversation pieces.

xD


message 14: by Topaz (new)

Topaz Winters (topazwinters) My latest so far - Gravity's Kiss. Thoughts? :)

falling in love is what happens
when the sky cradles you for so long
that you forget
what gravity’s kiss feels like
and it hurts that much more
when you hit the ground.

I very much enjoy reading poetry but not the best at crafting it. Some of my fav poets are usually the romantics like Coleridge, Tennyson, Blake, and Frost. But just for sh*ts and giggles here's a short one of mine:

Dermabrasion

Scar scar
go away
All you
do is
bring back
pain


I've been trying to write micro poetry, since it's so hard to pull off well, but like I said, its much easier for me to bust out a 700pg novel than a 7 line poem haha ;) Feel free to give input since its still a work in progress :)


message 16: by James (new)

James Rook | 101 comments Back when I began writing my book in notebooks, I started it with a poem. I'm debating whether or not to include it in the beginning of the final book.

The universe, however vast,
is already a memory
to eternal minds.
But like a tear
in the corner of their divine eyes,
a glimmer of light quietly shines,
and while it is only a drop
in an ocean of time,
for those who burn in that light,
it is eternity.

@Nicole I love that, short and powerful. The flow of a sinister nursery rhyme. Not that they aren't usually a bit evil :p

@James I really like that, I think it would be a nice addition to a book. I love treasures like that in the beginnings of books. One of the reasons I put the prophecy in the beginning of mine :]


message 18: by J. David (new)

J. David Clarke (clarketacular) | 418 comments I love reading poetry. My favorite poet is Robert Frost, particularly "Nothing Gold Can Stay". Ohh I love that poem. I wrote some awful poetry in high school like most emo kids, I've never been very good at it, but for a long time it was a big outlet for me. Most of them are so awful I will not share them. Like Spike the Vampire "William the Bloody" awful. Read some Frost instead. :)

@J I love that poem too ^^ Frost is amazing


@Bisky Aww thanks :) I tried! xp

@James that's amazing and would an awesome beginning start to your novel I think :) That's really good.

Vanessa  Eden Patton (vanessaeden) | 49 comments I love Robert Brownings poetry. He is just wonderfully dark.


message 22: by Katie (new)

Katie Talbot | 6 comments I am a huge fan of Edgar Allan Poe! I do write poetry and self-published my first book Fairy Tales and Ferris Wheels available on lulu.com. I am working on my second book titled Forever After. I'm not sure yet who I am going to publish with though. Maybe createspace...


message 23: by Katie (new)

Katie Talbot | 6 comments I love your poem, Willow! Love Lies Bleeding... stunning!


message 24: by Brian (new)

Brian Klueter (brianleeklueter) | 3 comments I love poetry!

I'm a fan of Whitman, Larkin, Hardy, Lawrence, Laura Riding and Louise Bogan, among others.

My favorite poem is one called "Forty Something" by a Robert Hass. Seriously, check it out!

Patrick Loafman | 2 comments Morning

Sparrow atop split stump
Singing broken phrases of jazz
Sun almost breaks ridge

(A haiku I wrote years ago)

message 27: by Heidi (new)

Heidi Barnes | 86 comments I read it a little and have started writing some that I post mostly on my WP site now. It usually is just something that comes to me listening to a song or while writing. I do the miroopoetry on twitter too.


message 28: by Pris (new)

Pris (prisblossom) | 1 comments I play around with haikus from time to time but never know if my poems are much of poems at all if that makes sense? Think I'll try my hand at one tomorrow to post here, though. Got me inspired :)

Look forward to it :D


message 30: by Heidi (new)

Heidi Barnes | 86 comments I step
I fall
You catch me
Set me on my feet
Steady me
Then let me stand alone
To step once again
Ready to catch me
In case I fall

One of those thoughts that came to me while listening to a song and writing. They tend to sneak up on me.

I love it Heidi ^^ also kind of reminds me of how like when a baby's learning to walk their parent is always there to catch them. Precious <3
