Blank verse in iambic pentameter
Laziness; can't blame it on craziness - that's much too sexy, and I've yet to cut even one ear off. This constant stare-off with my own reflection on poetry websites; impressions in fast succession, forming ideas, framing works, foraging for scraps of ambrosia and digging down for diggities. Oh ~ hot damn! Almost slipped on this wet versatile - who left the words on?

I’m sharing this poem for d’Verse OLN today.
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)
Would you like to create poetry with me and have a completed poem of yours featured here at the Skeptic’s Kaddish? I am very excited to have launched the ‘Poetry Partners’ initiative and am looking forward to meeting and creating with you… Check it out!

Playful philosophy David, Love that ending especially, and the reference to impressionism is delightful, Van Gogh who was, but yet didn’t like any rules, an in joke on his part.

If you do the book, David, “Who Left the Words On?” would be a diggity title, imho. In any case, fwif, it’s one of my favorite lines of your poetic words, irrespective of form or content. 🎯

Wonderful wordplay, as always, David ❤
💙🙏🏻 M Jay 🙏🏻💙
WP recently decided I didn’t want to follow you. For some days I assumed you just weren’t posting. I see you’ve been here all the time, and still on form!
I’m pretty hardcore like that 😉
