Off The Top Of My Head - Poem by Josh Brabender

this first free verse
i don't stop writing
will show skills
and why i keep fighting
to get me known around the world
for writing or healing or whatever
I'm just saying what comes to mind
right now I write now
I want to write with some emotion tonight
but like this night, I'm without sun
a burning passion, none
So i write blank thoughts from a blank heart
until the end and from the start.

    No left brain input, that's evident! Eschew that brutal light of day at any
    cost! Free verse goes back a long way, you know that, of course you do!

    Read Walt Whitman! Now his stuff is really deep and profound!
    Hell, go back to the *Song of Solomon* and taste Biblical free verse!

    I don't know that verse which comes unaided from within is purer
    than that which is filtered through the left brain! You decide that on your
    own, but continue reading good stuff and writing!

    Like you say, it is a start! That which comes unaided from within is purer than thoughts filtering through the brutal light of day. Yet it is in the light of day we are known and measured. Keep at it, you're on your way. Rgds, Ivan (Report) Reply
