Treasure Island

Patricia Grantham

(May 27,1952 / Moncks Corner, South Carolina)

Poetry in Motion

Pen, pencil and paper in hand with lots of smooth ink flowing
Thought and ideas pops up in the mind well worth the knowing
Then typed or written on paper not always in an orderly fashion
The making of rhyme and rhythm is one of our greatest passion

Putting these poetry in motion shows proof of the writers art
In order to make it a worthy write you give it all of your heart
Poetry is a like a river of water you go along with the flow
If you're unable to keep the pace you'll get lost in the undertow

It comes in all kind of titles wisdom, peace, love or hate
Then finally put together so that others may read and relate
They can encourage, provoke deep thoughts or may be uplifting
It is solely up to you the reader to do all of the fine sifting

    All my life people have said to me, still waters run deep, because I'm so shy. It's like poetry being written, we put words in verses (still waters) , and feelings and emotions (run deep) are all running deep with meaning and definition.
    Absolutely loved your poem, it's excellent and portrays our poetical writings in an honest, upbeat rhythm. Thank you for sharing. Especially thank you for your comments on my poems. You are very kind. RoseAnn (Report) Reply

    Poetry should have a beginning a middle and an ending with a meaning just like this poem that's poetry in motion...not always easy...regards (Report) Reply

    A very fulfilling description on the art of poetry writing and I must say yours went
    with the flow so well. A goodie (Report) Reply

    when we put our poetry in rhyme and verse, it quenches our inner thirst
    many like to write in prose, but we're different, we're like a rose. (Report) Reply

    Poetry, like a running river has a smooth flow, often with a calm surface and with layers of meaning underneath as the under currents. If we dive deep, we may sometimes get pearl bearing oysters, especially when the writer has given it all his art! An enjoyable read! (Report) Reply

    It's fun to write too - like putting together the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. I like the second line of the second stanza best. An enjoyable poem. (Report) Reply
