POETRY OF THE COLLECTIVE #1


As I browse Blogland, I notice many gifted writers. Be it just an engaging post or truly a work of poetry, there are hundreds. I love words... Scary to admit, but when I was a child in school one of my favorite books to read was the Dictionary. I remember when the teacher asked us as a class to look up words during "Dictionary Drill", I was always the first one to raise my hand to say I found the word. After a while, I realized being the first to raise your hand all the time wasn't such a fun thing after all. But, that's another story.

As I browse these Blogs in awe, reading so many entertaining posts, I thought why not give this poetry thing a try... However, I would love to engage those stopping by my blog to add to its content a verse or two. You must forgive my rough attempt at poetry. I don't know a Ottava rima from a Quatrain (and, yes, I looked those up).

Please feel free to add a verse to my first attempt at poetry. Be patient with me. Who knows? I may actually learn something from those who stop by. I hope you post. I can't wait to see how creative you can be.

Most of my poems are too long, but here's a Haiku or two for you...

All alone I sit
Always waiting for a word
Which from you won't come


Density of mind
Only shallowness shows through
Numbing those around

a Haiku..what? lol Need to look that word up in the dictionary I think...

Stoli, add some lines to the one I started. I want to see how far we all can take the "Blogland" verse.

I love Haikus - such fun...

Gypsysavage fair
Blogas and blots through the night
Weaving magic spells

Touching my heart from beyond
Five seven and five

I think line 4 lis a block to adding to it - without the words the flow is broken!

I've been trying to contribute on this one, but I'll be damned if I can think of the words to fit. I'm not good at all with structured poetry. :-(

If I type the characters that I see
in the picture above as directed
I always mistake the u and the v
and my comment is disconnected

So I'll no more go blogging late at night
I'll come instead anon
and, wearing my reading glasses I might,
hit those word verifyers dead on
