Poem

Language and pauses
Roll onto my screen
From brain to fingers.
.
They sound lyrical.
Evoke feelings and sights,
Sound pleasing in placement.
.
Maybe they are metered.
Perhaps conform to rhyme.
In sequence and order,
.
From stanza to verse
Could be in a song,
And fly with the birds.
.
Craft a word puzzle.
.
All pieces must fit.
Poems make you think
Of cleverness and wit.

.
Poems get remembered
Long after reading.
Many for centuries
.
Inspiring more.

Snag - I was smiling cuz of the words. I'd like to see what you could do with Photoshop if your puter could handle running it. :>

Firstly... I love the alliteration of "pleasing in placement" and "maybe... metered."

And secondly, thirdly, fourthly, etc... This is magnificent, Snaggle! I read it several times. This is worthy of being remembered in 100 centuries from now.

I like when it flies with the bird, that was unexpected, and lovely.

Jingle, Thanks!
Happy Memorial Day 2 U!

JanF, Alliteration of consonants is one of my fave literary devices. Thanks for thinking so- I seem to have a gift for non-fiction, semi-educational verse lately. If you rememer awhile back I put the "Poet" piece in your comments over at Funsterville.
