I know this isn't strictly 'Books' as it were but I thought hey....books and creative writing should run hand in hand!

So here's a thread for all you poets out there wishing to either:

Inspire
Wow
Amuse
Shock

or whatever you might wish to do with words that may or may not rhyme!

Go on...give it a go.... :cool2:

More Cows
------------
If a cow had a bigger brain
Would it stand out in the rain
Would it let the farmer come
And stick his hand right up its bum
Would it leap clear of the grate
To avoid becoming stake
Or would it simply be the same
If it had a bigger brain?

Food Stuff
-----------
Currants and Saltanas
Are much better than Bananas
But not nearly such an interesting shape
Cabbages and Carrots
Aren't a hit with parrots
But look good with a roast upon the plate

Coastie you are an inspiration to us all....



But I still can't string two words together to make any sort of poetic sense, so I will just keep reading yours.

LOG RHYTHM

Gently, dawn whispers into the mist;
imagines fleeting shadow shapes
in voile scarf-skin;
drops lighted silk drapes
from a glistening canopy,
skirting and flirting around the boles
of forbidding tree trunks,
teasing and pleasing
to dryadic creaking;
revealing a log:


a hollow log of deadwood,
cave-in full of leaf mould,
home to generations of tiny horrors;
a fossilized image of former splendour
living a kind of life
after a kind of death;
outside time,
unaffected by seasons
yet painfully aware
of every tick and every tock.


Shafts of virgin sunlight
pierce the glowing haze,
sear away the negligee,
bind the dryads until dusk.
Night surrenders all to day.

A butterfly dances in a beam,
dressed in golden, molten honey:
grace and beauty,
lighter than a feather,
breathtaking choreography.


Can a log hold breath?
Can a hollow log,
outside time,
conceive of the urgency
in a brief life of beauty?
Can a log wish so hard
that the grass around it scorches?
Can a butterfly hear that wish,
or does she simply, lightly, land
and kiss the smiling log asleep?


Gently, evening draws a velvet curtain
over the ticking earth.
Mist issues from the soil
and playful wisps caress the dryads
until even they notice the hush, and still.
In a hollow log,
in a pocket of leaf mould,
new life has been born.
A seed has been planted:
a buddleia seed.

Ode to BBC3

When I first got BBC3
On my Panasonic TV
I was expecting not to have to gripe
Having heardthe burb and hype.

Much was promised in the way
Of much of variety every day
But I have to say I'm not very smitten -
It's constant repeats of Little Britain.

Dear BBC please listen to me
And put something fresh on BBC3.

Even More Cows
------------------
A man in a beard can seem very wierd
A woman with it can seem stranger
But a cow with a tash is rather rash
A can point to mad cows and danger!

Blush Why, thank you. I can't rattle off funny stuff like you can, though. That's real talent. :bye:
