Guess who’s back, back again Bezzy’s back, my bestie friend Guess who’s back, guess who’s back, Guess who’s back. Guess who’s back? [(Eminem (Marshall Mathers = M+M)’s song, changing Shady for Bezzy (Jeff Bezos; billionaire publisher of my books; I don’t really know him, and it’s mainly parodying those who have relationships for career enhancement etc; although I am very grateful to him for publishing them), and ‘tell a’ for ‘my bestie’. I could be the new Eminem, the prequel, going back in the alphabet, using letterology: Eminel (M+L).]
These four are the famous coloured background formats I use on Facebook, with a maximum word limit I think helps me keep them concise, and is an excuse to keep them short!
This is how this small poem developed to fit a colourful Facebook background; the editing fits with the poetry advice I remember reading, to take out all unnecessary words, so that everything is vital.
As my generation ripened and matures we may think the orchard ages with us, but we are not trees, and other fruit will follow, as we sprouted from seasons of yore.
2. We may think the orchard ages with us, but we are not trees, and other fruit will follow, as we sprouted from seasons of yore.
If you like the above, my books are full of advice and examples:
grist to the mill
mist on the hill
words enter mind
meet-up maybe rhymed
then they chime, clickety click time
sub-lime olive green
branch bells ringing
nest like ancient amygdala
mirroring brain stripped bare
I wasn’t going to write a poem until seeing the misty weather forecast; even though I could see the mist! so the above poem could definitely be said to have been inspired by the mistYmuse, although it was more about seeing it in writing and having the proof to display.
