Having one of those busy, interrupt yourself periods in life. Been thinking about the blog for a while and  trying for something exciting. After many creativity blocks I decided to go with some older nonsense.

I love silly poems and twisty or twisted endings. So here a...

I have been less into thematic poems recently so today I will just post a couple that don't relate to each other. Part of the fun of poetry is the arranging on the page. It gives the work character and causes some pauses in the reading. In the following poems I purpose...

Recently I have been exploring various poetry forms. Some of the more interesting ones were variations of the haiku. I have included a few Brazilian Rhyming Haiku.
