Free Verse

Here is a lighthearted dig at my efforts in the recent posts:

Free Verse - is that
just an excuse,
for the less talented,
to pass off
broken sentences
in different lines
as Poetry?

I think not.
Poetry, as Wordsworth said -
Is a spontaneous overflow
of powerful feelings.
I dare not
control the flow

when I read this weeks ago, I thought it was correct about my own work!
So yes, let's take enigmatic thoughts, put them into broken sentences and call it poetry...forget the "rules" that's not poetic enough! ; )

I think it was Robert Frost
who once said
"Free verse is like playing tennis without a net"
or words to that effect....

A beautiful poem. You're a great poet and it would be a pleasure for an amateur like me to learn from your blog-poems/stories. Thanks for dropping by my blog!
