As The Poems Go

Rating: 3.1
As the poems go into the thousands you
realize that you've created very
little.
it comes down to the rain, the sunlight,
the traffic, the nights and the days of the
years, the faces.
leaving this will be easier than living
it, typing one more line now as
a man plays a piano through the radio,
the best writers have said very
little

'the best writers have said very little and the worst, far too much.' - True! At the same time may I say, those who are meagrely-worded in speech, can be eloquently fluent in their writings. The vice-versa is also true. Often the verbose speeches are misleading; the writings, seldom!

I mean has any one written a poem on behalf of Covid or an alien arriving. A suns ray from when it takes off from the sun to reach us. A poem about a poem. We tend to limit our scope to interpersonal relationships. Dream imagine go wild and i reckon you cant run of poetry. And then also mix reality with fantasy. Laugh. Humour is a great source of poetry

Yup. Thats right. Going round in square circles so to speak. As usual being a smart alleck i differ in opinion. What causes poets to have nothing to say is our self imposed limit of imagination and our desire to tell only personal stories and being politically correct. As poets we should be free to offend and amend. Wear some one else shoe etc.

It.s a true message of a Poet who has started compose many poems to achieve something remarkable but cannot do so even after writing thousands of poems on all subjects! Indeed one who says too much, has nothing as fact on the platter! Thanks for sharing this as reminder to many!

I totally agree with the above and add that it's not the quantity but the quality of whatever one has created whether it be poetry, prose or other works of art which determines what one will be remembered by and how people have related to it.

Yes! What ever I write have been written and what ever I do has been done before but that doesn’t stop me or anybody else from doing it all over again. It didn’t stop Charles either!
