Am trying to make sense
Of this thing called a forum
Am confused as I don’t know
I would like some help
With my writing
I would like to make it
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.

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!
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.
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! ! ! ! ! !
