Poet3 Philosoph4

3 poems I made time to post to Facebook this morning; then one more, changing the title of this post to wordplay Poetry and Philosopher with numbers:

Silence is golden, subtle movement surreal
rising to the task: thought: tremendous
dividing again, creating new neural pathways…

12.02 running glue
drips from sticky sky
no more gravity defiance
to trees, falling in lime compliance

it’s all in your mind:
your it’s all mind

Bonus poem thought of here, falling into Moby Memory Gospel state of mind. After seeing it take shape, I crafted it into a Folding Mirror poem.

Thinking of Dogs: Wolves and Walks

do dogs dream of when they were wolves
I probably know what you’re thinking
if you’re younger than me
because I passed through
that age
while I was sinking
deeper into my life experience
the variables anyway but maybe not
if dogs dream of their today and tomorrow

Summer Solstice Sunflowers Wordplay

Sunflowers know the sun provides them with life.

They seem to have had an educa-sun (education).

Will you be rising early to see the summer solstice, and following it across the sky during the day, like a sunflower does before opening?

I won’t! Maybe it’s because I’ve flowered and so stopped, as sunflowers do?

Sunny Hot Day Poetry (Pronounced Poetray)

When blue sky thinking becomes blank canvas reality, on clear hot sunny days, work goes out the window, calling one to follow…
Sunny hot weather all day
frees mind from emergency
planning to experience before
clouds arrive and rain does pour!
The above are a couple more sunny hot weather poetic philosophy snippets, created to fit the Facebook format; which suits my ADHD creative spark: and why the epic magnum opus XaW Files: Beyond Humanity was such a marathon writing ordeal for me; mirroring the 202 episodes of X-Files at the time!
After some flooding in the UK in February, spring has been the sunniest and driest on record in many parts. I don’t know if it’s climate change, but I do know it coincided with the end of mistYmuse 2019/20; but don’t think that’s anything to do with it… although I did give the sun a lot of love during it!?

Sunny Tree Sporadic Spontaneous Prose Poetry

After a sunny tree poetry idea entered my head it set off five days of sporadic sunny tree poetry; kind of like a sporadic poetry version of Jack Kerouac’s spontaneous prose.
After starting off with a simple thought it diverted into a capitalist/environmentalism economic critique, before a change in weather provided an ending, and a Holly Willoughby photo an irreverent epilogue!
Some people might consider it a form of madness, but I think it’s my skill: gateway to genius, which previously took me to the decade-long greenYgrey world!

Sunny Tree Soliloquy 

Sunny tree:
sanitary
to maintain sane!

Sunny tree: sanitary 4 sanity!

Sunny tree
makes poetry
unnecessary!

Don’t want promiscuity
in the sunny tree
my inner sanctuary
of self-psychotherapy
(inspired by MSN article saying promiscuity in forest clearing will lead to more pandemics in future)

Sunny tree homes harmony
squirrel, bird, bee
leaves shading lea
forest-sea tranquility

Sunny Tree: don’t need money
Beyond Humanity
Photosynthesis only currency

Agua absorbing, Sunny tree shapeshifts:
clothed cloudy;
branch leaves awakened seem to celebrate:
swaying party rowdy

Holly Willoughby
is not the Sunny tree
she’s a mother of three
likes flowery gYgPOPery
with no influencer links to me!

Beat Poetry and Prose Reviewed by Frank Skinner

Frank Skinner poetry podcast on Beats is now available on Planet Radio, home of Absolute Classic Rock, and many other musical genres, mostly split by decades. I usually listen to the rock show, but if there’s a song I don’t really want to listen to on there, there’s usually one on another of the channels (I have no association with them, and am not trying to influence you!). That may change in the future; I’m open to offers!!; but I have no masterplans for it now!!!

Frank Skinner, Beats and Me

Frank Skinner’s been into the Beats since the late 1960s, so he wasn’t influenced by me! Apart from his comedy, I just related to him before as a working-class football supporter and big drinker; who I remember saying put his comedy before friendships!

Like with most things now, I picked out things I related to, as well as hoping to discover new things. I pretty much knew the Beat history and names he covered, and similarly appreciate it and know its limitations. Here’s some of the notes I made during it; if you’d like more info let me know:

Starts with Sometime During Eternity – Laurence Ferlinghetti

Says it’s not a great poem, but he hadn’t known poetry could be like that.

Beats inspired by Jazz – bebop

Saw writing as a sacred thing

Doesn’t see Kerouac’s On The Road as a novel – more a long poem

Then reviews two poems by Gregory Corso – Bomb : shaped like a bomb, innovative at time; and Man About to Enter Sea:  Sea is our home, man stands for mankind, swim is evolution. Then reality – only bathers on the summer shore, back to ordinary, fights the mundane, like musicians, don’t buy into the ordinary, allow yourself to see beyond that.

No fear of the blank page.

Then Allen Ginsberg: first thought, best thought – crumpled up the paper and trod it into the dirt more than anybody – Sunflower Sutra (1955) – before him and Kerouac were famous (Ginsberg’s Howl published in 56, Kerouac’s OTR in 57).

Thinks Kerouac novels not great on plot: why he’s more of a poet.

Kerouac and the greenYgrey trilogy

In that regard, the first of the greenYgrey trilogy (2008/09 – blogged on Blogpost) is most Beat-like, as it was written without much plot, just literary nonsense. That was like my demo, in the musical arc I worked the trilogy too.

Werewolf of Oz: Fantasy Travel by Google Maps (now available as an ebook for free on Smashwords) was written freely, but then I went back at the end and tied the plot together on a six-month unpaid career break.

I had the denouement of the trilogy in my head before writing Xaw Files: Beyond Humanity, so it was a matter of filling in the blanks really – and choosing an X-Files series and episodes structure for the chapters and sub-chapters made it easier; although the length of it, and trying to make each of the 202 ‘episodes’ worthwhile was still mentally exhausting. It’s available for free as an ebook on Amazon Kindle Unlimited.
