Regular poetry thread

Regular poetry thread (because I'm tired of not editing my poems)

This is exactly what it sounds like! A thread to post poetry. I'm excited to read all of your work!

Whoa, Bluebird, that's great! The rhythm is amazing. You're a genius!

 

(Random Fact: Did you know genius used to mean guardian spirit?)

This is a haiku I wrote off the top of my head.

There are times when I

Just can't believe that it's real

That I do exist 

It doesn't really fit as a haiku, I think I need to work this idea into a full poem.

Okay, finally I can post this. Yay Roman numerals!

I. The world was balanced, almost

Peaceful. Then you came....

II. You corroded the world's heart, you 

Taught it cruelty then 

Pushed it over into the void of despair.

III. Is the world so small that one person can tip it over into darkness?

IV. But then someone else came,

Pushing through the misty blackness. And

She was carrying a lantern

Lit by hope.

V. The world's so large but even one person can love it all.

~~

I feel like this would be better as a longer poem, but I'm not that great at writing longer poems. Maybe sometime in a couple months or something I can look at it again and try and rewrite it.

I love this! My favorite line is "taught it cruelty then/pushed it over into the void of despair"

Here's a poem I wrote: 

- Imagination - 

Realms of another world,

wind coming,

surroundings fade,

noises become dim,

my other world forgotten,

into another universe,

so different from my own,

possibilities are endless,

eveything,

that I could ever imagine,

dreams take over,

anything can happen.

I would love comments and critiques on this poem please!

Somewhere

Together

We travel to the

Fragile and unfamiliar.

We trek towards

The unknown.

Perhaps lost,

Perhaps knowing the way.

Together

We're always

Somewhere.

I have no idea why I made this poem. It was fun to write, though.

I'm finally out of my poetry slum! Woo hoo! Here's a draft of a random poem describing somebody's eyes.

lake water eyes

 

a billion light beads

like sunshine

on the lake water

 

green green water like

homer lake,

named after somebody

named after somebody

named after a

poet

 

the lake is so

green and

warm

warm and you

just want to

float among

the tiny

whitecaps when

the wind is

blowing just

right and

the fishing boats sail

by

 

stirring up

new sunlight in

their

lake water eyes

It's beautiful, Bluebird! I can really see the lake in my mind!
