Just A Musing

Poetry – rhythm, rhyme and meter

– there are so many forms

that one can

become

completely

confused.

Vocabulary is another puzzle

because some poems are

written in conversational style

while others are stuffed

with words that one would

never use

in real

life.

And so I wonder

as I sit at my computer

who am I writing poetry for

and what is my voice

because it is

hurtful

to be

dismissed.

I think that my mind

must be too literal

to speak in metaphor,

or string together

extravagant and

sometimes meaningless

adjectives and nouns,

just because

it may sound

good.

And even if I could

learn that trick

do I

really

want

to?
