A Happy Poet - Poem by Ben Gieske

away with all this seriousness
truth can be a sinful senseless mess

Just want to be a happy poet
juggling words and having fun with it

rosemary, thyme and oregano
que sera will be whatever it will be

bonjorno tomorrow some things will be
stuff like that and lots of things you know

    Ben,

    I love writing silly poems as a happy poet but too often my heart is sad though my mind wants to play....

    A grand aspect of a romantic poet. As Samuel Johnson said 'to a poet nothing can be useless'. Happy thoughts, sensible feelings feeling, nice humour always make a good poem and a very good poet. Though I defined a poet in a different way in my WE DEFY BARRIERS, which is akin to my country where a poet has to be socially sensitive and must try to do something explosive, within his might.I enjoyed reading this poem, especially the tone, so mellowed and the words so smooth to suit the subject.

    To be a happy poet, must be able to share happiness to others through poetry! You make us happy! Thanks, high marks. (Report)Reply

    Let it free, let if flow, free-flow of 'words' making with it 'A Happy Poet', accepted, loved, allowing the 'truth...sinful senseless mess' to be a part of it :) Thanks for sharing! (Report)Reply

    I know just where you're coming from Ben. It's all those words that demand to be shared and arranged, somehow, like a puzzle. And all those playful ideas that need to be aired, and given a voice - just because. Yes, you go on being a happy poet. love, Allie xxxx (Report)Reply

    Ben

    Loved your poem...Because of love's inconsistency I find it most difficult to be a continual 'Happy Poet'...cold reality has a way of stealing my heart's song. You, keep smiling and dare to be happy!
