    Ack. So many beautiful poems in this thread.


    Here’s another triolet that I wrote recently:


    Teddy can’t protect me

    From the monsters in the closet.

    Behind the doors, they can see

    Teddy can’t protect me.

    I try to win over my anxiety,

    But I can’t boss it.

    Teddy can’t protect me

    From the monsters in the closet.

    @cindy I love seeing newborn poems in their freshest, rawest state–so rewarding. I think the magic is still tangible. <3 <3

    @emma-starr Oh, that’s so sweet!

    I love poems written like that in the perspective of a small child. (:

     How happy the birds must be–

    Sky-kings and sky-queens–

    Traveling along a pathway of clouds

    Tinted with the sun

    Tinted gold in the morning

    Tinted rose in the evening

    Traveling silhouetted against the sky.


    And I can only wander on this earth on foot

    And travel the expanse of blue skies,

    The realm of stars and dreams and thought,

    Only on the wings of imagination.


    Can you see the irony in this or am I being too subtle?

    Any other thoughts are welcome. 🙂



    @k-a-grey I think it’s lovely!

    @evelyn  Thanks! 🙂

    Futures are like darkness–

    Full of uncertainty,

    Veiling the unknown;

    And like children, we cower

    At the threshold of an open door,

    Afraid of what will jump out at us,

    Afraid of the monsters we are certain

    Are hidden from our eyes

    In shadowy recesses.


    Yet just as light drove away the childish fears,

    So does love, love perfect and divine,

    Drive away the uncertainty.

    “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet….

    For we may not know the future,

    “….and a light unto my path.”

    But we know Who holds it.

    Well, I just read all your people’s posts on the first page and thought that was it. Obviously not. Anyway, I’m new you might say.

    Every poet has their own technique and some are alike. Some are different and some go a’flight. (Well what do you know!) This form of poetry is very interesting and while I haven’t ever written this type before I may try. Here’s something I worked on of late:
    <p style=”text-align: center;”>The Beginnings of a Thought…a Rhyme…</p>
    Flowing in and out in rhythmic time

    Just like the thread of wrinkled rhyme

    Has gained reproof from there portend

    And seen the gates of life’s first bend.

    Fairer are the walls of grass

    Than all the other weathered flasks

    Of days left that withered away

    And trodden on the grass, at bay.

    The road, it bends and fills the gap

    For all the other’s tears to stay

    And from this coming on the sprout

    Of imagination, and that no doubt.

    This is a rough draft and so it isn’t perfect, but still, it’s a beginning.

    @w-o-holmes this is fantastic!  I’m not super experienced in poetry, so if there were technical things about it that weren’t quite right I didn’t notice.  And everything can be improved, even if it’s already good.  Even poems/stories that are already published could probably be improved.  I’d love to read more of your poems, because this one is amazing!

    @tashah-claymore – Gee, thanks, appreciate it! I submitted another poem to Story Embers for publication that my Mom said she almost cried when she read it. I’ll try not to make any o’ yall cry.
