Just Remember If You Care
Soon I shall be cast as a statue
in the oceanic shoals of time
as each organ melts
like a candy toy

the candle shows the path

Who would want to commemorate

flying into the wilderness
called eternity

What’s happening to me

Well why haven’t I wrote a poem or posted in a long time. Now that my friend is because I’ve been in chronic head pain and I’ve found out that that is because my shunt is over draining so in two or three I will have another brain surgery to get a new valve in my head.

The sun was feeling lonely in the laden skies no love making with humans clouds besides the sun warmed up the clouds they blushed and melted squeezed the water out and rained freely humans thought 'twas like pee but were happy the sun fired each individually Covid went to sleep now I'm warmed up sun has been so fee with me now who will come let me know The line is clear and free come along quickly be free madness over takes who you not me

Greetings everybody

I expect ya'll are becoming weary of my leading the last 2 workshops. Understandable. Hence I'm asking for volunteers to lead the next shop. About the only real requirement is having been on site at least 3 months. Everybody has something they can teach about poetry and if you are interested don't worry about being out there on your own.

I hurt myself today
To see if I still feel
I focus on the pain
The only thing that's real
The needle tears a hole
The old familiar sting
Try to kill it all away
But I remember everything

Rhythm and tone and rhyming

Now I know what your thinking what or how does rhythm coincide with tone?
Well my friend rhythm is all in the syllables and tone effects the rhythm
because for example let’s say your tone is a solemn tone then your rhythm
would have to be long and slow . Now if your tone or the feeling your trying to portray
is fresh new vibrant and free then the has to also move free just a little more speed
and little more
rhyming .
