My 2nd ghazal
All night through my dreams, bounce ping-pong words. Sometimes just one, though... at times, they THRONG ~ Words! They fly fast and slow; both high and low; Flash heavy and light; both short and long words. Encyclopedic; scientific; Literary; fun; even some song words Making a racket, bursting rockets; Cannons; thunder; and - worst of all ~ gong-words! I'm rendered both helpless and hopeless; The rascals know I hate using wrong words... Pleading, I cry, "Must you behave so? Oh! Why can't we all... -Just- get a- long, Words?" Then, finally, from darkest corners, Shyly come -the most perfect- "be- long" words.
Let’s write poetry together!
When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.–Ben Harper (b. 1969)
