Away With Words

Away With Words

A Poem by Neville Pettitt
"

Something a bit different maybe. Come on, don't be shy now....

"

Away With Words

 

Away

 With words 

The wordsmith sighed

Discard all those verbs

Then leave your vowels outside

Let us write about love for a change

 

 

Aye

Away with words

Forget about your pride

The end is nigh the blank page cried

Why don’t we talk about peace for a change

 

 

Away

With words

Go take a walk outside

Forget politics, religion the weather and sex

Let us all think about …………….......for a change

Feel free to add your own word in the space above

Being ignorant, have to ask, if this form of writing a specific one.. there's meter and yet not.. but through and through it has shape and resonance?

As to my word.. just one.. .. ' harmony,' perhaps, 'tolderance' undoubtedly, 'love' definitely,. Is there a word that provides a remedy for all ills?
'Miracle', perhaps@.

Such a challenging, finely laid post, Neville.

k okay, you've offered an alternative to discussion of [poetic] topics. Let's talk about "sadness" shall we? That's my word filling in the blank. mine. Those who do not acknowledge the sadness curl in the corner of startling awareness and wonder ..... what? me??

This IS something different. Interactive poems. You could set a trend here. My word for the empty space is REAL LIFE. In other words , action, not words! Nicely done.

Sleep? :p I guess I could do with some ;p

On a serious note, I think peace is the word alright. Sometimes tuning out the bad things and thinking positive is a good therapy.

Your title grabbed my attention 'cause I have a piece titled 'A way with words' which I edited yesterday. Maybe it's an interesting coincidence :)
I enjoyed the read 😊

Tolerance. The world is an awfully fractious place at present. A few more should bite their tongue, count to ten ( or more) and respect the fact all have an opinion.
Morning Neville, enjoyed the read. Hope all is well out West

We can always talk about poetry! some times silence speaks volumes , and just a glance gives assurances, and a touch tells tales !

Yes of course, thank you.....Neville
yes, let's add peace....it rings with the combination of all of those good things you mention---
i am from the peace generation...and relate so much to this....
this poem reminds me of something Steven Martin once said---talking about the new novel he had just written....."this is the first novel in which i started to use verbs; my writing has really started to pick up"---
