Poets

Group Created by Kingmar

Looking for poets great and small; published and unpublished. If you are already an accomplished poet or feel inside like you could be, you belong here. If you simply love reading poetry, this is the place for you.

I would like this forum to be a place where all poets could share their work, have it gently critiqued, and post favorite poems by our favorite poets. Maybe, we can even learn something about how to get our work published.

Let's get a discussion going about poetry and everything related to it!

    I just joined this group. I write poems and stories because words do make a difference. All of us must either write down their feelings or, read poems that speack to us.

    MyTanka poem

    April showers here
    trees and plants having a drink
    frogs singing their songs
    Ready to give forth their thanks

    If I Were*A Musical Note
    ~ ~ ~
    I'd be trembling, soaring,
    quivering pulses to savor
    pleasing and alluring
    hemidemisemiquaver
    ~ ~ ~
    sometimes I'd be flat
    sometimes I'd be sharp
    sometimes I'd be quarter-toned
    played on sacred harp
    ~ ~ ~
    I might be triad, or could be dyad
    perhaps now microtonal
    maybe even wish I had
    clef'd crown to look coronal
    ~ ~ ~
    sometimes I'd be tied and slurred
    continuous and unbroken
    sometimes lurking 'neath the lines
    dawdling till I'm awoken
    ~ ~ ~
    sometimes I'd be fine-tuned
    a Bartók pizzicato
    double-plus ambiguous
    a bouncing bowed spiccato
    ~ ~ ~
    sometimes I might transgress
    some ornamental hiss
    modify with finesse
    *dynamic emphasis
    ~ ~ ~
    In the end I think you'll find
    we transcend our hidden flaws
    after gathering in bars
    take my breath in silent pause

    this is my poetry .

    Chinese one

    鹧鸪天,醉步山中

    醉步山中只独斟,寂寥小径绝行人。西风碎叶三秋菊,古木秃枝万里云。
    云入酒,酒销魂。一杯岁月去无痕。溪边青石他乡客,鬓似苍芜泪满樽。


    English one

    the nonair house

    There have no air in the house
    I live in
    I am similar as a caged mouse
    I think

    no air, no breath
    my lungs are very cold
    no air, no life
    I am a lonely soul

    I am becoming mad
    the large pressure
    will break my head

    the house is not the gift from devil
    but the trap of love

    here is one of my poems!!!!!!!!!!!! Soul Like The Vastest Sea
    Your soul is like th vastest sea
    And mine a darting fish.
    I lose myself within your love.
    I live within your heart.

    I breathe your love: it is my air
    my element, my world.
    I know no other ambience;
    I have no other dream.

    I know there is outside your love
    there is a world of rocks and sand
    and i could live too oh,
    how poor and thin each breath.

    how rich my world, how beautiful
    alive within your love
    each moment's filled with dancing light
    refracted through your eyes.
    JAneese Diane White
