    Am trying to make sense
    Of this thing called a forum
    Am confused as I don’t know
    The decorum

    I would like some help
    With my writing
    I would like to make it
    inviting

    but I know not how to write
    and I’m feeling I just might
    of the depth of my need for assistance
    make everyone run of plain fright.

    lol

    Come and visit me on here. I'll make some
    tea and bake a cake. We can talk about 'techniques,
    tips, and creative ideas how to write better', or just
    watch the telly.

    THE POET (JELLY TOT)

    When young I attended an Art School
    But I wasn’t a snot or a toff
    Found drawing with pastilles was uncool
    As all of the sugar fell off

    The teacher would tend to ignore me
    As they drew city landscapes in grey
    But I drew my landscape in strawberry
    As I just had red pastilles that day

    The others did outline and shading
    And on everything arty, got hooked
    My pictures were sticky and fading
    As my pastilles had mostly been sucked

    So I left the school quite prematurely
    As in art I would not be a star
    My mum bought a pub and quite surely
    We gave it the name of ‘Mars Bar’

    It was huge, brown and covered in choccy
    But we just couldn’t make the place pay
    You can’t see the punters for toffee
    Even though we both work, rest and play

    These days we are no longer working
    In the Milky Way nothing appeals
    But I still feel an advert is lurking
    “It’s the sweet you can eat between meals”

    how do we improve our poetry?
    do we find words that rhyme?
    do we enmesh their beats with time?
    or do we simply embrace mockery?

    how does one write poetry,
    with detph, and breath
    with freedom and love,
    with passion and soul?

    how does one write poetry
    like poe, or shelly
    like keats, or browning
    like frost or cummings?

    what makes poetry come alive?
    what makes it soar,
    above the skies and
    what makes it hide?

    what makes these words tangible
    as neruda writes his thoughts?
    what makes these words painful
    as browning claims ENOUGH!

    The heart...
    i guess is our key
    in improving our poetry.

    though words may rhyme,
    though they dance with the beat of time,
    poetry will mean nothing
    without a heart and soul.

    This One Is Off The Top.
    So I need some criticism.

    Now is my time.
    Time for the world to see a new man.
    Out with the frale & lonely guy.
    It's time to take a stand.
    March through a valley of bravery.
    With a torch of confidence in my hand.
    Holding it up high.
    Bringing glory to my Newfoundland.
    Proposing a strength so merciful & strong.
    So uplifting & graceful.
    The feeling of a king.
    The torch remains warm.
    Longing the coming of a being so new.
    Keep the bravado up high.
    Lift up my torch to my sky yet so blue.

    Be Honest.
    And be sure to comment some of my poems.

    I have been very busily inspired by my Muse and I have added new haiku to my collection titled RAINBOW IN MOTION HAIKU.I think it may be the best poem I ever wrote.And it is my favorite so far.Let me know what you think and enjoy its uplifting universal message. There is something for everyone in my series.Thank you! ! ! ! ! !

    Haiku are not that easy to write because of the syllable scheme and required impact.Hope my collection inspires or leaves you with lasting impressions.
    Have a nice day! ! ! ! ! !
