Sonnet 31 'How High the Bar That Makes a Poet Real'

How high the bar that makes a poet Real!
(He walks in mists, and shadows of himself)
To be a poet, is to burn with steel
Set short time in the forge, the lesser self!
He brands his heart with fiery words, set down
And burns his mind with thinking, ‘til it glows,
He hopes, of sonnets, his will be the Crown,
And hopes that all the brilliance of light, shows!
But, oftener, he writes a humble piece,
A few words cramped into a simple form,
But somehow, in his feelings, a release!
Yes, humble-bumble often is the norm.
And that high bar, he reaches seldom, and
Leaves barefoot footprints in the fruity sand.

Will poems to my dull senses rise,
     In plainer garb, or apt disguise?
Can turn of phrase else serve an end,
     To vanquish foes or win a friend?

What ardor gains a rhyme’s release,
     To grant me treasured moment’s peace?
Or is it merely hubris’ child,
    That lets me dream I’m Oscar Wilde!

Poets Despair

I despair at writing poetry
I'm not sure I have the skill
Just can't seem to find the words
Or bend them to my will

It's hard to sum up what I mean
And make it sound succinct
So as a poet should I stop
And quietly go extinct?

Should I lay my pen to rest
And let it gather dust?
But something seems to urge me on
To write is now a must!

So putting pen to paper
I'll scribble just for fun
And maybe one day very soon
A poet I'll become!

Fun Observations On Poetry

Like hard, dry toast, with no aroma,
Poetry minus heart and soul, puts me in 
an endless coma!

My brain short circuits, the longer the poem!
I get a poetic seizure and my mind
is lost and endlessly roams.

Then come the poets, who are would-be 
As fascinating, and exciting as wooden bean 

Finally, those poets, who think the divine 
Thesaurus, makes a poem a dream?
I sit here, in agonizing tears and do a 
howling scream!

Andrea's Poem Buffet - Tribute Limerick

A Lyrical Chef we'll call 'Dre',
whips up Writes for her Poem buffet.
She bakes Words into Rhyme
and roasts Prose in the time
it takes most just to cook a Cliché!

This limerick was written for 
my Soup buddy Andrea Dietrich. 
Thank you for your positive 
input and excellent support - 
you are appreciated!. xoxo

Elusive Poet

No rhyme
	This time.

	Still naught.

Read books
	Got looks.

Brain nap
	A sap?

More rest
	Flunked test.

	Not fine.

Didn’t learn
	Still yearn.

Free verse
	Got worse.


Tried hard
	No bard!

Waiting For Any Woman

Be patient
be very very patient
after that
add more patience
then wait
and wait
and wait and wait and wait
become a waiter
at least you will be paid to wait

When she finally finally arrives
give her the biggest smile you possibly possess
tell her, "Hello love, you are early and
looking very majestically beautiful my sweet!
what have you done to your hair love?"
since you have waited a century or two or three
it's a safe gamble she has, and you my friend
will be a big winner.

Therefore when you wait and wait and wait
be a winner
even skeletons

A Day In the Life of An Aspiring Villanelle Poet

This form repeats too much, I say.
It’s hard to write a villanelle—
I’ll try again some other day.

My rhyme begins without delay;
It’s going fine, then—what the hell?
This form repeats too much, I say.

Doggone it! This is not okay!
I’m under some nefarious spell.
I’ll try again some other day.

But no, I cannot stay away.
I breathe, then smell that same old smell:
This form repeats too much, I say.

I took the bait; I’ve fallen prey;
The crude result I cannot tell—
I’ll try again some other day.

And thus I end this odd ballet.
(I’ve really never danced too well.)
This form repeats too much, I say;
I’ll try again some other day.

Jack and Jan My Funny Poets

two poets  names spring immediately to mind
when I feel a little low their poems I find

Jack with his limericks make me giggle for sure
to the point where I nearly have a puddle on the floor

if I said this to Jan I know her reaction would be
to smile all day and write a poem about me.

so thank you Jack and Jan your doing so well
writing for others to enjoy, your funny tales to tell

keep writing  both of you don't stop 
or my days of laughter would immediately flop.

thank you Jack Ellison and Jan Allison

Oh Ogden, Our Ogden

Will one write an Ogden Nash?
A touch o' wink, bit a blink
And then, add a glint o' guile...
Doing all, with wryest smile.

Or could it come out "Mish-Nashed"?
Since Nash, he himself, had mashed
His isms into witticisms
Leaving most in a mad dash -

Tribute, 8 Line, Light Verse, 48 Words, To Ogden Nash
Noted American Poet 1902 - 1971

Am I vomiting?
Or do I throw down instead of up.
Singing with a sudden frown,
In barf upon a promised gown.

I wore it to prom as a virgin.
I wore it on my wrist.
A flower wrapped around the list,
Of ankles cankled ‘neath a face unkissed.

I’m a pimple.
Pop me till I puke.
Until the thrill of the up I chuck,
Quacks like a drunken duck.

Or high like the school?
Drooling with the fellow mule.
Assing through town unable to procreate.
The father’s horse and mom’s whatever. 

Hybrids are for textbooks.
Useless as the diploma.
I forgot the words to the theorem,
I forgot the words above them.

Am I vomiting?
Am I poeting?
I threw down instead of up.

Mind the Paint

My mind a project of hesitation; draw an oval maze of meditation. Enter penciled lines, make them squiggly, then paint it yellow for Mr. Wigley. Squeeze a few lemons for it’s sometimes sour, then let it dry for half an hour. Stick here and there some golden stars, before you inscribe my memoirs. Use a hole punch or glue on swiss cheese; for between my ears, sometimes a breeze. Last, but not least, cover with cotton; for the time it's fuzzy and things forgotten. Then tear it all up, this art you’ve designed, because suddenly Hon, I’ve changed my mind.

A Melody On Parchment

Feelings on paper
A melody on parchment
easy poetry

your heartfelt humor
delighting unknown strangers
while you ignore him

pouring out your soul
into a painting or poem

Poet On a Date

A hopelessly poetic guy met
A scientist studying climate.
   Nearly all that she said
   Went right over his head,
But at least he was able to rhyme it.

I am not terribly bright
I simply like a good write
so that's how it goes
no skin off my nose
I hope I don't cause a fright
Paper and pen in my hand
Poems begin as I planned
They go their own way
I pound them like clay
With each one I make my stand
Rhymes that always have meter
They act a whole lot sweeter
They love being voiced
Each of them I hoist
Inside til I complete her

Two Poets Arguing

"Must you always rhyme?",said he.
"Must you be a show-off?",said she.

"Each comment a grand show of your jocularity,"she huffed.
"Ah, you are just so jealous,"he puffed

"Not really,"said she' with serenity.
"I just know you are capable of sonnetry."

"But instead,lazily you pen footies," 
Hardly sourced from the great Muses!

His Own Writer

Don't corner the writer – put
him in a cage and poke; you
like Shakespeare...then read
Shakespeare! And let the writer
be his own rhyming or ill rhymed-bloke. 
To me, mistakes, imperfections – 
spontaneous glitches, as I prefer to
call them – send me into joyful stitches; 
a fresh exhibition of relatable nature – 
the transformation of perfection into 
Human Interest.  So, let the writer
be his or her own protagonist, or Free-willed
blessed Nemesis. Write and read whatever
tickles you pickles you...and let Mike be Mike, 
and Jane
be a literal-pain 
to her personable like.

A Certain Cunning Ham Named Tom

There's a certain cunning ham named Tom
Who once crafted limericks with aplomb
  Lately, no funny new lims
  Has Tom's funny bone dimmed -- NO 
His computer's been infected with ROM!

Three Poets

Did you hear the one about the three poets that went walking in the woods?
They bumped into each other at the fork in the woods.
None of them knew which way to go.
(They should have all taken that path less taken I think)
So, they sat down together and wrote a long collaborative poem.

Once a muse named Christina
who had the wisdom of Athena
	made a suggestion
	sage without question
and I followed into that arena

she recommended that I write
‘bout fairy tale characters with bite
	now there are many
	to choose aplenty
I’ll be writing late into the night

Although Christina does not know it
she's turned me to a kind of poet
	who can be silly
	write willy nilly
and be careful that I don't blow it!
