If MPS Poets Met.....

If MPS poets met

Face to face in 1 big place

Would all be spouting poetry?

Or do so case by case?


Poet T.15 rushed in late

With a ciao and hugs all round

She'd followed brown eyed hero

Through Italy, town by town


k the np was coming too

The men were up and aglow

Would she wear leathers with whip?

No! Dragging all 3 kids in tow


j56 brought cat, dog, chicken

asked how to rhyme this 'group'

Many UK poets suggested

Why not end with Boris's poop!? 


PB had us all laughing

And falling off our seats


Enthralled us with their treats


AS did an acrostic

We all had to make a guess

What the next line would be

We all made such a mess


We tried out some limericks

Just like ME often did

Some took only minutes

Others said 'heaven forbid'


yrBBGf60 came

fA1daD and DD too

wh and RH could not be with us

NHsosRLquite new


They all read out their poems

Many of love, some erotic

Some so funny, some heartbreaking

Of any and every topic


Such superb inspiring poets

Expressive, uplifting too

Some wrote on daily basis

Some were still very new


I think it would be great fun

For MPS poets to meet

We'd change the world OUR way

Our words could kill that Covid.


I am so glad I joined the MPS site. I enjoy reading the poems and learning about people, cultures, places, seasons etc. Although we are from everywhere, our fears and sorrows, our hopes and dreams are the same.

My apologies to MPS poets for using initials, to those mentioned or not mentioned. It's that stubborn bit of my brain that tries to fit it all - the rhyming lobe.

    Great words Rozina, one day I dream I am going to get an island and we can all meet and be with each other in harmony.


    • Rozina

      Thank you Andy. I am seeing you writing your island poem….

    • Teddy.15

      I'd be up for a reunion, this is full of charm and warmth what a gorgeous way to appreciate sharing our thoughts and wishes and heartache and love and chickens our aliens and our beliefs without fear. Rozina thank you , one thing I know for a fact is that I would never ever be late, my blood is British my Italian family would be late though, that is true lol 🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣 a huge hug a very joyful read on this Friday morning. Thank you. πŸ’–

      • Rozina

        Sorry Teddy, It’s not your fault - it was that beautiful man with big brown eyes and flat blue cap that you saw during the evening rush hour. He was on the train and you tried to find out where he came from; but his train went through town after town….!
        Thank you for your lovely words.

        • Teddy.15

          LoL well I love that you enjoy my scribbles so much πŸ’–

        • dusk arising

          Thats a fun read.... I think a meet-up would be great but there would be so much noise with everyone wanting to orate.

          • Rozina

            Thank you. Yes, I can imagine the noise!

          • Violet bluebell( used to be yellow rose)

            Great poem ! πŸ™‚ I bet some of us would be able to talk easily to each other ..

            I like your words

            And I really like this site

            • Rozina

              Thank you. It’s a lovely group, and it would be easy to chat. Members are very encouraging and constructive in their comments.

            • kivous

              This is one of a kind, beautiful poem. Just loved it! πŸ™‚

              • Rozina

                Thank you.

              • Paul Bell

                Are we organising a piss up in a brewery, somewhere, maybe poet's corner? Put me down for a crate of ale, and a coke to be sociable.

                • Rozina

                  Ok. I think you mentioned a pub before called The Red Lion - would it fit us?

                  • Paul Bell

                    It's a bit like the hotel California, once you're in you never leave.

                  • L. B. Mek

                    now that's a dream
                    worth waxing poetic about...
                    thank you, simply beautiful
                    what a Friday treat..
                    loved your Second stanza,
                    ('T.15' as our lead-off
                    one hit homerun, wonder!
                    I'll be there, hidden somewhere
                    cheering y'all on
                    with my pom-pom's
                    and Kylie, short-short's)
                    'oh yeah, trust me
                    ain't no one gonna wanna see
                    that image, in reality
                    so staying hidden, is a must for me'

                    • Rozina

                      Thank you so much.

                      So sweet dear Rozina
                      Often did I wonder what a beautiful sight it would be to meet all beautiful poets that we read
                      To all poets that I read, they all are like celebrities to me

                      Those souls that we read
                      One day we may give them shape
                      And nevertheless I was searching my initials too
                      So happy to see myself there
                      Thanks a lot dear Rozina

                      • Rozina

                        Thank you. I really enjoy reading the lovely lines and seeing the pictures that emerge from the poems. Yes we may all meet one day.

                      • FallenAngel1πŸ•Š

                      • Rozina

                        A picnic of poetry. That is lovely. Thank you.

                      • Michael Edwards

                        Not been on for a few days and so glad I fiound this - a super write and tribute to a great bunch of poets - and refreshingly original too.

                      • Rozina

                        Thank you.

                      • Neville

                        this is not only most original but really quite spectacular .... makes one feel like being part of the family ... 10/10 πŸ™‚

                        • Rozina

                          Thank you.

                        • AuburnScribbler

                          What a wonderful poem Rozina, and a most welcome idea as well.

                          Though we are darted all over the world, I'm sure an event can be arranged, as it would be a great occasion.

                          Also, I will endeavour to make my acrostics more clear, hahaha!

                          Bravo, and I hope that all is well!

                          • Rozina

                            Thank you. I couldn't resist putting in that stanza - I learnt the word 'acrostic' from your poem so thank You.
