my original poetry
I really like your opening couplet,'I was standing inside her nest in the hole where poets rest'And I love the idea of 'teaching birds the spoken word'Thanks too for your comments on mine.
it would be pretty cool to hang out with some of the old beat poets and take a lesson or two...
Life is about sharing and what best but the spoken word!Anna :o]
Hi Wayne--I live in NYC (and have for a long time) and saw Ginsburg read several times in the old days, and once went to a kind of workshop with him. He was very inspiring (though I also have to admit that he was probably less interested in me, a young maternal female, than in some of the other students.) But it was also terrific--that whole era very interesting. Wonderful poem and great take on the prompt. K.PS - I am having a lot of trouble commenting so am using an old blog I have on blogger--this is Manicddaily at wordpress http://Manicddaily.wordpress.com.
Wizard in every sense of the word !
Old poets with patience and time on their plate can be very encouraging!Hank
Sound like a song the beat poets could set to music.I'm going to follow you. Pity about the W.V. though.
Standing O. Well written. Greatcontent and cadence.
Great beat and rhythm to this piece loved it ...we all have much to learn from those who go before us ...thank you so much for sharing x
He would like your poem, Wayne.
I love your swirling words. How appropriate in a nest. And your first stanza was divine.
Poetry is a gift to be shared. Nice!
Oh I so love "in the hole where poets rest"...lovely write, Wayne...
I hear the end say 'to you' !!! LOL
Reminds me of the series where the Wordsmythes were valued and important. The 'nests' though were caves of telepathic dragons! Enjoyed both the verse and photo! Thanks for stopping by one of my 'nest' sites.
A cracker of a poem! Cosily flowed!
Wayne, you hit all the right notes!
