Cien poemas In less than a year Muchas palabras Flowing line after line Looking back now Digo con confianza La poesía Is the best "waste of time"
This is my 100th published poem on HP.
It's been a fantastic ride sharing in this poetry community, reading brilliant works of art, sparking new ideas, and seeing the power in our words.
Poetry and other forms of art are sometimes derided as a "waste of time." I already disagreed with that sentiment but this past half year or so has shown me again the real value in both reading and writing poetry. So thank you, fellow poets, for making this a great artistic community truly worth our time! Mil gracias and here's to hundreds more!
though she's not here with me now i'd like to add this to my vow además to all the word's i've sworn those old promises now well worn in sickness and in health we said from this day til death's bed for richer or poorer for better or worse now i'd like to add this verse
in presence or absence together or apart you're on my mind you own my heart
picturing you here with me my mind's eye can clearly see
you're in front and behind to my left and my right
Midst the mountains, sitting so high Gazing down at a turquoise sea Nature recites love songs to me As I release contented sighs Crickets chirp, sparrows sing, my spirits rise This is a world to be relished and prized Midst the mountains
Imagine Earth in perfect harmony Forgetting war, strife, victim's tortured cries Escaping all life's pain and lies Resting here where my heart is free Midst the mountains
Trying out more poetic forms. This one is a Rondine. https://www.writersdigest.com/whats-new/rondine-poetic-form
... Well on closer review, I didn't actually follow the form correctly. But I still like this one so I'll just leave it as is.
