Love,
Like some dove
On wing high above;
It is a weightless drug,
These feathers, which I hug
And I rise

for rhyming poetry in the 21st Century ~

There are only four proper places
for rhyming poetry in the 21st Century ~

humorous verse,
poetry slams
and Hallmark...

I'm still trying to figure out the fourth.

my rhyme schemes
are often best
to be replaced
because you
can't hear me croon
in the afternoon
as I type out my feelings
alone in my room.

I'm thinking of trying to get a few people together to share poetry through youtube videos.
Help all of each other critique
for any of us who wish to speak,
                                            be heard,
                                            help learn.

There was silence left in
sanity
And nothing left for
vanity
With little time for
calamity
No mind: Sean
Hannity

I don't even know Sean Hannity; it all just rhymed.
the rhyming scheme does not work for me

When I ask my friends to read my poems
they question why they do not rhyme
and while avoiding an eye roll
I reply that I am not a mime.

Who says that poetry must be
pretty words set to Dr. Suess,
to them my prose is unsatisfying
and my words much too loose.

I don't want to be confined
to the rules set by others,
I am a blossoming artist
not one that can be smothered.

Just writing this poem,
I am deeply unmoved
the rhyming scheme does not work for me
and I officially disapprove.

i sound like a four year old :-)

Sometimes it makes me feel like Dr. Seuss
What’s that word…oh ya moose
It’s a good way to teach the little one
And it is a whole lot of …uh….fun

I think that it makes it easier to read
It adds rhythm and speed
I sing it like a song
Ya maybe that’s wrong

Who would have thought who knew?
I would rhyme poetry for YOU
I can’t think of topic so I’ll stop
Or else I’ll recite “Hop on Pop”

So I’ll leave with this treat
About flowers so sweet
Bright yellow and orange…
Huh, oh ya nothing rhymes with orange

I had fun writing this one :)
