Rhythm And Rhyme - Poem by Loke Kok yee

Do not ask the whys and wherefores of rhythm and rhyme
But only the how and when from those more poem incline.

My secret in the writing is, do it late on a murky night
The Missus then be snoring, you can do whatever you like.

For inspiration and good measure, watch lots of racy porn
However nothing will be moving if you watch till early morn.

When you are fully inspired, words will become clear lines
Just put them in good order, and hope that they will rhyme.

But the crux of this matter, all having been said and done
Is to wait for adverse weather when other events you've none
Then search your heart for ideas, compose and have some fun

    A poem so joyful with rhythm and rhyme can only be written by a sweet poet like Loke.

    Do come back to write more and more such lovely poems, Loke.

    I love your lighthearted write on writing poetry and capturing those creative moments. I can relate to stormy nights, lack of sleep, and a mulleted brain from a late night, night shift......10 (Report) Reply

    Beautiful portrayal of the process passing through which you prepare yourself to have new ideas and put them down on the paper in order to get a finished product. Thanks.

    Yes, it is in the stillness of the night, when everyone is asleep that a poet's heart gets filled with new ideas and he puts them into rhyming verse! Only when our heart is at rest and free of other occupations that poetry comes! Thanks for sharing! (Report) Reply
