Definition Of Poetry

Poetry is a form of literature that uses aesthetic and rhythmic qualities of language—such as phonaesthetics, sound symbolism, and metre—to evoke meanings in addition to, or in place of, the prosaic ostensible meaning.

To me personally, if you dream poetry and wake up in the morning writing poetry, you’re a poet. Do the words in the poetry have to rhyme? No, not all the time. Poetry is another form of expressive writing. Poetry has the ability to tell stories or forms songs- once known as “floetry” and no not the R&B duo. Floetry where it would just flow out as a rap or verse.

If someone gives you negative criticism, take it with a grain of salt – because each poet has a different style, and above all, we can’t please everyone.

So do you, be yourself. Don’t let others dictate what you should or should not write.

Blue Roses

Come forth Fragile Child,
The essence of wild call to you,
See the blue see the red yet see the light,
It calls to you, fragile child of the woodlands,
Be not scared nor Feel the pain of human torture,
Be one with your Mother Earth. For she too knows the sorrow you go through.
Sun to the east and sun to the west,
People, Sit and confess to their little flower.
Blue Roses my Fragile Child.
Come to thee For one more Frolic in the sun,
One more day to lie, In the water with such Beauty,
Float on by with such loveliness Oh, Blue rose your time is short,
for when fall comes,
Your petals wilt and your bud go into the ground once again…
Only to make more Blue Rose’s

Clouds Of Grey

Society of Chaos and Plight
People Of Militia Ready To Fight
While others rather take Flight
This year seems to be out of sight

Civil War in the near horizon
As the POTUS sets the poison
He Rallies the supremacists
Not realizing they’re self-destructed catalysts

The real Americans shall not be defeated
And his wall will not be completed
He will try to become deep-seated
Yet his allies are depleted

We must persevere in the dark hour
No matter the height of his tower
We the people can not cower
Let them chant 4 more years we can counter

He goes down in history as a traitor
While bubba becomes his neighbor
Behind those bars of steel and slate
He knows it’s too late

Winds of change and fate sets
A reminder for them to limit bets
As the new dawn sets on this day
Under the smoking clouds of Grey

Petition To End Declawing

Everyone knows I have a soft spot for animal kind. And I truly do not believe in declawing cats. I have teamed up with my friends at Guardian of Animals, to combine our knowledge of the dangers of declawing cats. To create a well thought out petition to plead for the outlawing of this practice.

Petition: https://www.causes.com/actions/2597722-sign-the-petition-to-governor-wolf-house-legislature-senate-state-representatives

The Medical drawbacks to declawing include pain in the paw, infection, tissue necrosis (tissue death), lameness, and back pain. Removing claws changes the way a cat’s foot meets the ground and can cause pain similar to wearing an uncomfortable pair of shoes.

If you are an animal person as much as us. Please sign and share. Hopefully, Pennsylvania will become the next state to outlaw this barbarity.

Melting Hot

Here it hits with global warming
While scientists kept on warning
The world keeps on turning
Yet a breeze we keep yearning

Never-ending sunlit blaze
All while people are in a heated daze
Mueller Meetings held in the important house
While POTUS continues to act like a louse

Still, it goes on like the never-ending story
And people have been known to worry
Yet still, the Earth seems like it’s on fire
As it tries to reset before the big retire

Here I think why people are not living in fear
It’s a bit unfathomably queer
The heat beating down on you
Take the time to get a clue

We are in a stew pot
And yes climate change is real
Can you not feel the unusual weather
As all skin is turning into leather
Call upon nature to make a deal
Because It’s seriously melting hot

When Does It End

Chaotic spiral out of control in frontal view
Lies and alternative facts he continues to spew
This nation built upon lies and war
Everything is tainted and rotten to the core

There’s no cure or hope for humanity
Sticks and Stones plus words break sanity
Doesn’t matter the political party when all is a calamity.
Whilst you scream for God with your fake Christianity.

Lords name taken times ten in vain
Repeating the history of Able and Cain
All humans do is leave a blood stain
All I can do is shake my head in shame

As I watch the world break and bend
As I wonder how people can pretend
Watching greedy people collect and spend
All I want to know is when will it end.

Let the dolphins free

Can you see the dolphins play
Can you hear the dolphins speak
See them swim in the sunray
Watch them jump to the highest wave peak

Wild and free in the ocean deep
Playing hide and seek
Flying fast in the water with grace
It’s almost like watching stars in space

In the ocean is where they belong
To sing their own shanty song
People should observe from a distance
Keep it sacred and not tainted
We all need to learn coexistence
To be responsible and acquainted.

Future Generations need to see the wonder
Because a book will not do Justice with a picture
As people rip everything asunder
Animal laws should be stricter

Let the dolphins be
Let the Dolphins Free

Save The New Yashima Aquarium Animals

Usually, I use this blog for my poetry and other artistic hobbies. However, a friend came to me the other day with an issue, pertaining to the abuse that Dolphins of the Yashima Aquarium are going through. Since I am on sabbatical from advocating fully, I have decided to help and share a petition here. I know many of my poetical followers are also animal people.

Therefore, I kindly ask for you to sign and share this important petition.

New Yashima Aquarium Shut Down

These Dolphins are being mistreated, kept in small tanks and even smaller performance pools. They are having trainers dressed in Power Ranger costumes riding on them.

Not only this, there are also Dolphins who seem to be mentally damaged and have been smashing their head into the tank glass. That evidence is on the petition. I love Dolphins, and I believe they should be free to roam the oceans. I will be having a friend deliver this petition to Abe Shinzo the Prime Minister and to the aquarium when there are enough signatures to turn in.

I thank you all for helping out with this urgent issue.
