    Poets are not always the opinion makers but poets are the catalysts to opinions in world events. They cannot blindly write poems but actually with due consideration and observation of the world.

    I Tried to Do a Dog


    cumbrous going down no time to ponder
    burnt amber shag freckles swapping
    places on faces sitting crisscross
    applesauce legs touching underneath

    a dining room table lips pressed together
    a harsh light from a kitchen surrounds it
    outside the body like now tottering
    not even a last glimpse at verdure

    children squeal the echoes strangled
    four bare feet

      Well, the'Max' poem is gone. Is that PH or the author?It's a shame there's such weak individuals out there with no sense of humor, and egos like stained glass. I liked that poem. It wasn't great, but ... more

    Friendship

    When you see your friends smile,
    Can you not help but smile along?
    And when they are feeling down,
    Can you not help but feel down too?
    For friendship is the common ground on which we gel,
    This we know only too well.

    Who writes the wackiest posts on the forum?Pranab or Sean North?Sean gets the nod for creativity, but Pranab, with his Beckettian ability to confound, should get his fair share of votes. Merry Christmas to both of them, and their clitoris'! !

    Quiet brilliant the codes to apply but so hazy, really undone to get its access.

    Into the Wild

    The sitting sun, wrestling
    with the clouds, and
    kindles the sky
    with pale reds; and snaps
    her glory, loitering in the wild.

    But i see winters in
    her smiles, often synced in tears.
    O, this world is like a belly
    of beast, spouting acid
    into love and peace.

    The time crept by
    slowly, still her innocence
    trances my dreams. And I
    can hear her whisperings endlessly
    walk on the barren moors.

    Today I read the poem Tree of Joyce Kilmer. Unfortunately I was not so much heard about this great poet who has gone for ever in world war in such an younger age of 31. His biography states. I found his poems so realistic and beautiful in all respects. A great poetic mind.
