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. :>

Talon, you should know due to your awesome poems! Thanks- I like maing everyday bizarre n "What's that?" pics

Paige, Glad you like my post, n the posts too! the comments below explain that Mickey Mouse helped Charlie Brown with that stair project...

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.
