Simple Poems

Rating: 4.9
Sometimes I like to write a poem
That doesn't take much thought
Just put the pen to paper
Close my eyes and start to jot;
I give my pen the freedom
To travel where it may
Such wonderful surprises come
From minds let out to play;
No structure, rhyme or rhythm,
To complicate the flow
Just pure and simple language
From a source that I don't know;
It's difficult to write a poem
That's technically correct
When all I want to do is play
With thoughts that don't connect;
Sometimes you gotta let it say
Whatever comes to mind
Some poems just like to write themselves -
Those are the funnest kind!

Linda, Oh! , I know that it is true ... but, if that poem wrote it's self - why are you taking credit for it ? Can you plagiarize yourself? B.V.A.

My thoughts exactly Linda. I don' like to be bound by convertion. Whether or not the reader has a problem with that is their problem.

many people whine pretentiously about how important they are as writers and all of the mind-boggling creative processes they go through. With this witty poem, you set the record straight, Linda. Like all good poets your work comes from the sub-conscious.

The profundity of this poem was obviously the fruit of long thought and laborious revision. Your erudition shines through the many references to Bronze-Age mythology. Plus, you seem to enjoy a bit of fun! Well-written, graceful and - eh, wise.

LINDA...I HAVE A STRANGE, YET CONFIDENT FEELING THAT YOU JUST PUT DOWN INTO WORDS WHAT MANY AN ACCOMPLISHED POET ALWAYS FELT, BUT NE'RE ADMIT.AND TRUTH BE TOLD, TIS NOT A DAMN THING WRONG WITH YOUR STYLE/CONCEPT, BECAUSE IF YOU ANALYZE IT(WHICH AS YOU KNOW I DO EVERYTHING) IT ALL COMES DOWN TO THE FACT THAT BECAUSE YOU LET YOUR MIND FLOAT FREELY IS WHY YOU CREATE THE QUALITY POEMS YOU DO.YOU KNOW HOW TO TAKE THE EDGE OFF, AND BY DOING THAT, YOU WILL ALWAYS BE IN A COMFORTABLE ATMOSPHERE, CONDUSIVE TO CREATING THE WORD.
