Augustus

Hours of Poetry

This is much more fun than TV,

Baskin' in the sun with poetry.

I may swoon each light's emotion,

A gay moonlit nights devotion,

Meet at the sunrise and sunset,

Greet with surprise, sometimes regret.

We may watch the day star rise and fade

Awash in reservoirs memories  stayed.

    I agree that being creative is much more rewarding and productive than vegging out in front of the computer or TV. I feel like this site is so helpful to many, as well. Great poem and point Augustus!

    The very best way to spend free time is to write poetry - agreed my friend and points well made in this light-hearted verse.

      Thank you Slim. (Does any one call you that?) great comment.

      I agree with WBL---being creative is more rewarding than vegging out in front of the TV. I don't even remember the last time I checked Facebook! You really have a beauty of a poem here Augustus!

        Beauty in the eyes of the beholder. Thanks.

        I agree, better than TV and any other entertainment. Poetry is the heart and soul bare open, for the world to read. I enjoyed your poem and I appreciate your writing.

            I notice many here are willing to bare their most intimate thoughts, troubles, etc. Thanks for the comment.

            Even when watching TV I have to be doing something. Usually either Sudoku or listening out for word associations which I quickly scribble down - I have lists of them and when writing a poem I refer to them to see if I can weave any of them in - if not wait until the next one. Don't do Facebook - but anyway I love this - it's a little special.

              I write down ideas. A week or so ago it just slipped into my mind. "This is more fun than TV." I saved it to come back to. Thanks.

                Wow basking and writing poetry, what a great two in one combination. I admire your rhyming word choice lots too. I like the word awash, very poetic that. Kudos.
                Great to read from u again.

                  So happy that you caught that. It was a short simple poem without anything earthshaking but I tried to get 2-3 rhymes in each phrase. Thanks.

                  i agree 100% that more time should be spend on things like poetry that better yourself, instead of things of unnecessary pleasure. I love your word play on this write, so elegant and modern.

                  • Augustus

                    Thanks for noticing the word play and commenting.
