Senryu for You Too

Senryu for You Too

A Poem by William Michael Reeves
"

New poetic connections with poets in the Cafe.

"
Genius has a rhyme
Journey to a world of words
Noodle Einstein

Frankly he's verbose
Fabian sings fabulous
Mostly rhyme, not prose

Patricia spills pain
Mourning cups of poetry
Yet she tries again

Calling to the past
Perry runs with words that howl
Writes Coyote fast

Songs do brush Betty
She paints pure thoughts of nature
We love Hermelee

Rebel with a cause
Rocks the words that roll in mind
Cowboy gets applause

Penning words of prey
The Falcon grasps thoughts that rhyme
For JE to say

Gee is such a whiz
Writing from a kingdom far
Death is all the biz

Arundass TP
Translates thoughts that grow in hearts
Words of mystery

Gurl is new to write
Now she's gone so no one knows
Her song, what it's like

Ambling 'cross the page
K. composes lines of verse
Poems that engage

Thanks. Yours was a little hard since your name used up 9 syllables and I still had to say something.. read more
Being called "verbose" is about the worst insult one could hurl at a poet since poets strive to be succinct and illustrative.
