John Knight Poems
A Special Kind Of Lady
How much do i appreciate you - My Special Lady? Let me count the ways the whys and the wherefores.
The Art of True Love
The Art of Love is not to be confused with the Act of Making Love. The latter can sometimes be merely physical (especially for men) the former is Spiritual and involves the Heart the Mind and the Spirit.
*701 INEQUALITY OF LIFE
This poem is written in a classical form - OTTAVA RIMA. There are eight iambic lines. In this poem I have used iambic pentameter - ten syllables per line. There is a very strict rhyming pattern giving the poem vibrance and flow. a b a b a b c c then d e d e d e f f etc. I see trees of green and red roses bloom The air is so fresh and the sky is so blue

1118 SPANISH HAIKUS
Spanish is very similar to Latin (from which it is derived) and Italian consequently Spanish Haikus also have an excellent 'voice' due to the vowel endings. Again I included some literal translations into English. SOLO Y CANSADO PERO TRAS LA VENTANA
What is Man?
It is a fact of Science that in terms of size,
The median between the vastness of the universe
And the minuteness of an electron is - MAN!
This makes the term 'Middleman' much more significant.
Modern technology has unwittingly placed Man at the centre,
The centre of Global Development and Global Destruction.
The centre of praise - for his discoveries and conquest of space
The centre of blame - for pollution and global warming.
