But I plough on and occasionally knock out the odd rhyme or two and I’ve even started a blog where I can put my meagre efforts on public display - it’s called ‘No Rhyme or Reason' by the way!
I’m not going to write a new piece today. Instead I’ve decided to reproduce a piece I wrote especially for a friend a couple of months ago. If you have read it before please accept my apologies for using it again. It is however a piece which means a lot to me and one which I don’t feel I can better.
May I ask one thing of you? Please press the arrow on theYouTube screen before you read it. Thank you.
Words not said
She felt his happiness
he sensed her pain
Just a glance
She saw his anguish
he witnessed her joy
Two minds joined as one
He was her soul mate
she his inspiration...
along with the haunting music Keith.. this was just beautiful!ReplyDelete
No nightmares for you!! YOU are a poet! xo
You can't pretend any longer that you are not a poet! Thank you for letting us hear this in your own voice. Have a great weekend - and perhaps be inspired to write more poetry for our enjoyment.ReplyDelete
So what's wrong with that may I ask! To be terribly crass and unoriginalReplyDelete
'You're a poet and you don't know it!'
Beautiful but my favourite is still the one you wrote about me :)ReplyDelete
you summed up a beautiful relationship :)ReplyDelete
My Sunday Poetry
You spoke volumes in this beautiful poem...just lovely (and the music added even more).ReplyDelete
No worries here Keith...in the words of the Nike commercial...JUST DO IT!! This is very good...clear in it's purpose and addressed to the friend you cared about. Well done!ReplyDelete
All you need is love...ReplyDelete
What a beautiful package Kieth! Moving.ReplyDelete
What a splendid production! I feel as if I should have paid for it, it was so fancy, with music and your to-die-for English accent...mercy! A lovely poem, Keith, read to perfection : )ReplyDelete
The reading brought such a nice effect to the poem.ReplyDelete
I love your pommy accent Keith. Now I want to hear more about the story behind the poem. O.K.........I know, mind your own business, it is private, he he.ReplyDelete
You are a poet at heart Keith, that is a lovely, touching piece and the recording of you reading it makes it even more so. You have a beautiful voice.ReplyDelete
first i must say i LOVE your 'lacrimosa' music in the background!!ReplyDelete
second, loved this. it speaks of silent language so well. i think this is stronger than the verbal language.
and it's always better with a british audio :)
Such the poet, you are. Brilliant.ReplyDelete
Bravo! That is an amazing poem. The backgound music is perfect - hauntingly sexy!ReplyDelete
how wonderfully provocative!ReplyDelete
I love how you bring audio into your blog. It really takes the work up many levels. I played your poem a few times. The music was beautiful and the poem is still resonating with me.ReplyDelete
geez what makes you think you can't write poetry !!ReplyDelete
I really loved this one...Can we have more of your poetry pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeee
A neat piece - I missed it the first time around - doubly glad I caught up with it...Nice!ReplyDelete
Beautiful poem! You definitely have a knack for poetry, even if it is a nightmare for you.ReplyDelete
