"If I knew where poems came from, I'd go there"




- Michael Langley, 'Staying Alive'


Careful Storyteller and Weaver of Words
You bring shades of grey into a world that lives in black and white
When you speak, you end up blurring the thin, cracked line between imagination and reality
So, watch your words, and choose them wisely
In both speech and ink
Don't blot out that line, where black meets white
It's the foothold of sanity

This is really beauitufl and I particularly love the last line, because that's exactly how I feel about writing and being a writer. Do you think you could check out my poem Sowing Poppies, please?

"My role in society, or any artist's or poet's role, is to try and express what we all feel. Not to tell people how to feel. Not as a preacher, not as a leader, but as a reflection of us all."

This is great!

Would you mind checking out my work? Thanks!

I don't need a rose. I want a daisy you picked for my hair. I don't want some fancy box of chocolate. I want a pink frosting cookie you made just for me. Lets skip the upscale restaraunt and have a picnic in the park.

I like that you left the lines long, rather than breaking them into shorter pieces--it re-enforces the flowyness of the poem. The word choice is good too--one off word that wouldn't fit would be like a sour not in a great song. Bravo
