Haven’t posted in a while so here’s something for you guys💕 New Music later this month 😈
For those not familiar with the novel To Kill A Mockingbird, Boo Radley is the extraordinarily reclusive neighbour. He is referred to throughout the book but never seen until he emerges (spoiler alert) briefly but critically in the final scene. #poem #poems #poetry #poet #poets #tokillamockingbird #harperlee #booradley #poetrycommunity #rhymingpoets #4linepoetry #4linepoem #verse #igverse #writer #writers #word #words #writing #written #writtendown #instapoem #instapoet #instpoetrygram #instapoetry #writersofinstagram #writersofig #writersofdistinction #writersoftheworld #inspiredbyliterature

Words are a surface tension between the currents within and the calm outside. Comfort The windows are being pushed wide open, welcoming the swaying trees with my hello. There is comfort in the fall's whistling breeze, like the quick smile of some rambling fellow. The tightened screens sieve unpredictability, so I'll remain in the comfort of a new chair. The burden in my heart makes me too heavy, encapsulating myself from what's out there. The will to move comforts some future day. The haggardness of now hugs my chest tightly. Through the brightest days I hear friendly calls. Yet, I must console a heart beating unbrightly. I'll care deeply for these roots I've inspired, protruding from my soul, I'll remain stable. Smiles are possible but in sorrow I'm attired. Wisdom instructs that comfort is more than a fable.

Don't forget to use the tag #ALetterADay . . The Imayo is: a 4 line poem. syllabic, written in 12 syllable lines broken by caesura after the 7th syllable. . The Imayo is associated with song, (recitation in a high pitch) and originated with the common people in folk song. But by the Heian period it was embraced by the Imperial court. This folk art evolved with the influence of Imperial aristocrats and famous courtesans or Shirabyoshi dancers incorporated the Imayo into their performances. One type of Imayo is used in Kabuki, Japanese theatre. . Pic credit: me.

...tagged for a #repost by @whiskeyandpens and @littlemissbadraconteur. Thanks ladies. @Regran_ed from @e_a_s_ Two Trees My sky lined eyes, nestle within two trees, standing subtle, in smooth prairie weeds. The touch of the hill, lends a curve to each stone, and it's there my skin, is scraped clean and honed. The relic polishing breeze, twirls with my breath, and lends a new aspect, to my heart's desire for rest.

Hello. Here are a few haiku after a longer than expected absence. The pictures are from a recent fly fishing trip to Idaho. There's more to fly fishing than fishing. I haven't written as much as I expected since logging out. The words are still there but a focus, or something else, is missing. I'm in no hurry to figure it out. Several poems have started and stalled. I enjoy the feeling of not pressuring myself to write. The feeling isn't unpleasant nor unwanted. I'm in a decent mental place and will just write as it strikes me. I wish I could share this sensation with you. Perhaps some words will make more sense of it soon enough. Oh, and this IG thing isn't what it used to be. 😊 #ArtlixirPoetry #ByMePoetry #HerHeartPoetry #InstaHaikuGram / #haiku #haikuoftheday #haikuofinstagram #igverse #instahaiku #notpoppoetry #poetry #poetryisnotdead #poetscommunity #poetssociety #poetsofinstagram #realhaiku #writing   #writingcommunity #writershigh
Inspired by angrydan I've created #limericksversushaikus to address the question "which re better, limericks or haikus". As Harry Hill would say "Fight!" If anybody would care to pick a dog in the fight and make a post I would be most tickled. #limericks #haiku #haikus #haikusofinstagram #haikusoninstagram #ighaiku #ighaikus #iglimericks #igverse #humourouspoetry #humourousverse #funnypoem #funnypoems #funnypoetry #poetryclub #poetry #micropoetry #poetrycommunity #poemsofig #poem #poems #poemsporn #wordsmiths #wordsmith #wordsmatter #writersofinstagram #writerscommunity #haikusversuslimericks
Poem on page two. My second effort inspired by my August bank holiday trip to the Yorkshire Wildlife Park. Turns out David Attenborough has been missing a trick all these years. I've seen loads of lions taking down zebra and wildebeest on the Serengeti but never one simply standing side on to me and effortfully roaring. Awesom. #yorkshirewildlifepark #poem #poetry #poet #writtendown #writtenword #lionpoem #lionpoet #lionwriting #animalwriter #animalwriting #animalpoetry #animalpoem #shortpoems #shortpoetry #shortpoem #igpoetry #igpoem #igverse #lionroar #lionroars #lionroaring #words #wordsmiths #wordsmith #writerscommunity #writer #writerslife #writers #writers_den_ #
Being the "uneducated layperson" that I am I only recently became acquainted with the word dissemble which the dictionary defines as "to conceal or disguise one's true feelings, nature or beliefs". To a greater or lesser extent we all do this almost daily. The problem explored in the poem is this makes it very difficult to understand your own life story. Who made the decisions that affected you and why? You will never know. #poetryclub #poetry #poetryofinstagram #poetrycommunity #poetryporn #poetrygram #poetry_addicts #poet #shortverse #shortrhyme #shortwriting #tinypoem #minipoem #littlepoem #nanopoetry #micropoetry #littlepoem #dissembling #dictionarycorner #igverse #igwritten #igwriters #igwriting #igwriter #writersofinstagram #writerscommunity #wordsmith #wordsmiths #wordsmatter #pickyourwordswisely #pickyourwords
Runs to two pages. It was reading an article in the Sunday Times magazine that sparked this. As per the title it is a bit of a freewheeling rant but hopefully it articulates what I wanted to say. #writing #writingoninstagram #sundaytimes #fakedorgasms #femaleorgasm #menandwomen #rant #writtenrants #wordrant #rantpoem #opinionpiece #rhymes #rhyming #rhymingpoetry #rhymingwords #wordsmith #wordsmatter #wordsmiths #igverse #igpoem #igpoetry #igpoet #igpoets #igpoetsociety #igwriters #igwriter #writer #writercorner #writercommunity #writersofinstagram
I'll be away from IG for some time. Exactly how long, I'm not sure of. I'll return when it feels right. I apologize for my lack of response to recent tags. / The need to disengage is creeping into me. Heeding that sensation is important. Too many things in my head, and soon its heaviness bends the neck too much, and I like seeing tall trees, reflecting windows, mountains and the sky. It has become time to activate a filter. I will logout of IG in a few days. Therefore, I won't be aware of any tags, etc. I promise to catch up. / To those who have become unmet friends, or anyone else, if you wish to contact me, please do. You can reach me via the email in my profile. I'll haphazardly check in on it. / Many of you have been gracious with your time and comments. I thank you. I feel a pleasent responsibility towards you. I am jubilant that anything I've written can entertain, or otherwise have an affect on a reader's imagination. / Once again, I honestly thank you, and will see you again. / The #sleeping #fractured #selfie is for D, @littlemissbadracontuer. / #ArtlixirPoetry #ByMePoetry #HerHeartPoetry #InstaHaikuGram / #haiku #haikuoftheday #haikuofinstagram #igverse #instahaiku #notpoppoetry #poetry #poetryisnotdead #poetscommunity #poetssociety #poetsofinstagram #realhaiku #writing   #writingcommunity #writershigh

So, @littlemissbadraconteur and myself were chatting about rabbit holes, and how they create their own special type of echo. Eventually we got to talking about words and a haiku evolved. Then siblings of that first haiku were spawned. Now, like gremlins in a rainstorm, they're everywhere! Damn Deanna, you're one of my favorites. Your way with words is truculent and cozy. @littlemissbadraconteur & @e_a_s_ #ArtlixirPoetry   #ArtlixirSpoken #ByMePoetry #HerHeartPoetry #InstaHaikuGram / #haiku #haikuoftheday #haikuofinstagram #igverse #instahaiku #notpoppoetry #poetry #poetryisnotdead #poetscommunity #poetssociety #poetsofinstagram #realhaiku #writing   #writingcommunity #writershigh
Wallow You wallow in a slick, of perfection turned gore, forcing rancid smiles, through a beautiful stench. The slop wetting your feet, is squalid discontent. Your valueless eyes, stare astutely at the rain, having endured brutalities, crying and fancy screams. You stain everywhere, with a lovely pox of dreams. You wear as a prayer, the purity in other eyes, feeding them breathless nights, so starvation gets an alter. There is no care in what you do, they're to blame if they falter.

#SpokenWord (audio on 🔉🙂) / On a Butterfly’s Eye Ivory brushstrokes, tantalize on high, blushing their brilliance, onto subtle clouds, supporting the layers, of our valiant sky. Every glint from a sun, each shimmer on a moon, all the sparkles at night, and the daylight’s glow, are found on a butterfly’s eye, in reality’s cosmic tone. The endearing eternity, at the core of every sheen, that began all our dreams, remains a delicate thing, never craving to be seen. It's far gone and always lingering, glimmering inside reflections, refracting from forever’s stream, winking from some distant scenery, as tiny glances of the lovely gleam.

As Low as The River As low as the river, in days of formality. Its flow slows morosely, loathe to plod forth, and be part of some sea. Its rapids of majesty, once whooped in laughter, riding the loping currents, where rough mountain shores, adore happy droplets. The river’s hardy heart, now impounded by silt, slackens with a frown. It renounces while drowning, having lost its roiling crown. Heavy with guilty pressure, ladled from what's above, it presses the ocean floor. It pesters for a deep crevasse, where it may again plunge, whirling to rediscover, the terrific torrents, of the long ago wild river.

Forever Warm It will be forever warm, at some far off, unknown place, on my time's timid horizon, where I, at long last, will become gently dead. This heart will bury itself, without foolish fashion, high born ritual, nor wicked particulars, of a preordained depth. All shall be irrelevant, unbeknownst to me, when, digging with my heart, deep and far from it all, I'll be my final work of art. This heat left unburned, will smolder below, scorching the surrounding soil. It will morph bones, impregnating my sorrow, altering the unfeeling stones. It will call to deeper things, fluorescing putrescently, to wriggle and snivel, sheltering near my coals. This roiling energy, long wasted and unspent, desperate to roam the heights, will finally be the light, far down in moist darkness, in some kind of eyes. EaS / I hope no one minds me tagging them.

Dumb Brute I've seen the dumb brute, down low in the muck, knees stirring the debris, dropped without thought. His search for sustenance, never ends when found, there's always some other, perhaps sour or savory, never tried before flavor. A desire for the base meaning, within the grime of his nails, keeps the hunger unfulfilled, for the unsacred answers, about what created the swill. So, toss and let go, those things you ponder, no more than winter's snow, or inner beauty’s glow. The brute you notice once, watches your hands, traces your eyes, waiting for your debris. He wonders why it is, so many ask the simple whys. EaS ...just a dumb brute.

...tagged by @whiskeyandpens for a #throwbackthursday , but time has moved on to #FlashbackFriday . / ..."Op Beni Canim" a kyrielle...translation from Turkish: "Kiss me, my life/my dear." My wife's first language is Turkish. I've rewritten an earlier poem to her and it's become this #Kyirelle . Op Beni, Canim (Kiss Me, My Life/Dear) (pronounced : Ooep Beh-nih Jah-nuhm) A bench below fluttering leaves, enwrapped by summer's gentle weaves. Serene and calm in city's hum, as one heart, ”Op beni, canim." / They talk in smiles and closer lean, Eyes pleasantly wander their dream. They hear life's song and sing along, as one heart, ”Op beni, canim." / She blooms in his motion to her, He bows lower, his soul astir. The warmth of lips, a luscious sun, as one heart, ”Op beni, canim." / The days open worlds to wander. The nights holding lifetimes lover, Their twilight lives, still see the dawn, as one heart, ”Op beni, canim." / EaS #ArtlixirPoetry #ArtlixirSpoken #ByMePoetry #ByMePoetryAmerica #CornerBlogs #DoorToOurSouls #HerHeartPoetry #SilverLeafPoetry #TempleofWords #UntwineMe / #creativewriting #igverse #instapoet #metaphor #notpoppoetry #poetry #poetryisnotdead #poetscommunity #poetsofig #poetsociety #writer #writershigh #writing #writingcommunity
Forever We're more like children, less as adults, when we fret, and get flustered, about simple things, that are forever. This, all of it, always has been, therefore, will always be. It's each new day, and every old thing, even what's between, the unknown places, we still need to see. It's more smooth, than a lover's skin, as terrible a thing, anyone ever wants to see. Yet, it's what we are, and where we've been. It will wait for us, moving with speed, when we stand and sing. Just let it be, it will take care of us, and all the other things. It's our nightmares, our simple day to day, it's the blame we lay. for not paying attention, to its needs. You'll find it, so will I, after the heavy rain, between all the sands. It's the forever, we crave to spend, some so unwisely. We have to learn, it's not ours to define, it bows to no demand.

Marketing I wear your clothes, these tattered limits, smirking with approval. I swear your words, delimiting commerce, praising your external. I hazard these things, in this make believe, scenery of you as true. So easily removed, these light weight drapings, disguising simple rules. Your polished avenues, those glittering jewels, can pockmark so simply. Infect with difficulty, squeeze so severely, you'll flinch from necessity. The base of civility, weaves no fine thread, nor speaks in higher air. Under marketed lines, you'll bleed as fast, then beg for someone, less debonair.
