petrifying past programming
sipping sugared spearmint
supply soul sating sanctuary
Sarah sits serenely
scribbling; shaping stanzas solemnly
speaking, shrieking symphony
Sarah’s secret sanctuary spoiled
she stands suddenly
Sarah stormily saunters south
I’m a lover of words…writing them, reading them, hearing them…
And while I do not write as oft as I should, I do still consider myself a poet.
So it may surprise some to hear that one of the most difficult classes I ever had in college was a Poetry and Drama class!
The thorn in my side, if you will, was the damn “Poetry Explication” assignments.
I mean really..sight rhymes, slant rhymes, alliteration, assonance, onomatopoeia, stressed and unstressed syllables, feet, meter, simile, metaphor, personification, hyperbole, understatement, etc., etc… and on and on…
Poetry is art and passion…it sings to the soul so why should I dissect someone’s work as if it were a frog? Who am I?
Some may think that is ridiculous but I felt and still do feel strongly about it.
I actually wrote a five-page paper for that class explaining why I would not, could not complete one of the assigned explications.
The teacher was not to happy (but I think she secretly respected me for it…).
So my advice…Read for yourself, think for yourself… What did the poem make you think? What did it make you FEEL?
