A poet's work is to name the unnameable, to point at frauds, to take sides, start arguments, shape the world, and stop it going to sleep.

~Salman Rushdie


The Rainbow after
The storm is you, giving me
The hope to move on.

Just now, an image in my head just came to me, like a movie screen turning on, and then the words, in less than a minute. Hope you enjoy this! :)

I have to say that usually I don't like limereks...but I really love yours. They make me think about poetry more than I usually would.

Me and my dad against my mom and bro. But I do give the Packers some credit; they do deserve that much.

Excellent work!  It really rings true and you used the proper amount of syllables.  I really have no criticism, so great work and keep writing!

Hey you're right about the 2nd line thing... but the poem doesn't have to be a haiku. It could be free verse. Anyway, it doesn't really matter because the poem gets the message across.

Love it! If this is a haiku, I think the 2nd line has one too many beats, but that's a minor thing. Otherwise, it's great! :)
