a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

For Poetry Jam...

I know forms of poetry
And care not to look today
What comes out
And lays on this page
Is just
Words
Not poetry
So there are no rules
Like paint only becomes art
After enough people say it is
These words can disappear
Be used in different order
But
They
Are
Just
Words
Owned by none, used by many

For Poetry Jam

I say this is poetry and so very well done! Word crafting is what we do, what we love, and you do it very well!

Glad to see you here in Poetry Jam again. Smiles. You know, there are so many definitions and forms of poetry I don't think any can say what is or is not. Actually, if the poet calls a piece of writing 'poetry' I will accept his/her definition! And what you wrote IS a poem.

Irene said...

And I agree with you completely!

Sandy said...

Ever consider publishing your poems?
