dVerse Poets Pub : Ars Poetica – Poems about Poetry

hosted by 

*

dVersePoets is continuing to celebrate a year of poets getting together and sharing their work in a supportive environment, thanks to co-founders brian miller and claudia schoenfeld

recently i posted a series of writings and samples about my fiction writing, now i have the opportunity to write a small poem about writing poetry!

this “forms” prompt, from gay reiser cannon, is focused on asking what is poetry, beginning by saying :

Most scholars agree that poetry is linked to our most primitive past, and came into existence in an expression of emotions usually accompanied by rhythms (percussion, drums, singing, chanting,) and music. Therefore it enjoys the station of one of man’s oldest and basic arts.

she then presents an interesting look at poetry in term of “content,” “form,” and “effect” and includes a short piece from Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream 

i had written my poem below before reading that portion, but am glad to follow in his invaluable sensed poet’s tradition of  the elements 😉

it’s amazing the varied range of discussion in the prompts from dVersePoets, i hope you get to go by there and check it out

How I Write Poetry

i’m an air sign that

catches fire

sparklers and bursting

then

doused with rain

sprinkles and gushers

carried,

bleeding pigments,

into the earth

sandy and rocky and fertile

but i

started as air

and

inevitably rise in wisps

from the tendrils of plants

as pollens of oxygen

wrapping myself

forgivingly

into

cyclones and breezes

into

air

once more

it’s how

i

brush myself into

rainbows

even

i

get to wonder and smile about….

  1. What a great opening – I am an air sign that catches fire – there’s poetry blazing in every line here. What a fabulous poem!

  2. Chazinator says:

    This poem has so much of the lightness and playfulness of what poetry can mean. I think too that poetry can liberate our spirits, raise them into realms where possibility is the rule. Your poem gives a sense of that possibility both in content and in its form.

    Ha! And to think I almost skipped this! I wondered whether I really wanted to the ‘shape’ poem, and carried on since I’d started anyway, and my smile kept broading, and the words expanding – and what an experience!

    This is a GREAT piece!

    air and fire, but air: and therefore I get from you fireworks and photosynthesis, the bursts and whispers of sound and life.

          thanks claudia, for both the lovely weekend and good wishes for sheila, she’s doing much much better, even if wearing herself out (a tiny bit) getting herself back into her former mobile self – now she’s hinting she’s getting eager to see “how much better” she’ll be able to get around 😉

      thanks brian, kinda like dust to dust but from air to air 😉 i’ve often wondered what our wanderings through the years might be about, seems to be something about absorbing things from the people and events in our lives, nice prompt from gay, thanks 😉

  9. Very creative, Adan. I really like this section:

    “but i
    started as air
    and
    inevitably rise in wisps
    from the tendrils of plants
    as pollens of oxygen”
