Dancing on The Savanah: Revolutionary IMprov Sonnet

October 7, 2010

Feeling harmonic ebb and flow, do you,
treading across the savanah’s plains, care to
take a creative chance/
and passionately dance?

Barefoot in grasses green,
to musicians only heard, not seen./
Whose creative muse from far away/
calms us when confused and holds sway/

over our hearts, souls, and hands
and as we dance ‘mid the grass and sands
we come to the conclusion:/
there should be no confusion!

Our mental, soulful, heartfelt views,
as we dance, hold only music and muse.

Asking for Poetry on a Whim: An Revolutionary Email Sonnet

September 18, 2010

Most women are a bit freaked out by getting poetry/
immediately./
I have a theory about that,/
but since you asked:/
Behold! A sonnet!/
Extemporaneous!/
Just for you, to show my wit/
(and if you’re truly smitten, you do have my digits.)
————-
Ah, to be able to indulge you on a whim
with my writing prowess.
You haven’t learned, I guess:
A poet needs muse to inspire him.

Could you potentially be
the song’d siren who brings
the verse musicians will sing?
My poetic muse for me?

It’s hard, right now, to say.
I tend to be more restrained
before I am moved to break into refrain.
We’ll have to meet someday.

Sooner rather than later would be my choice.
Then we’ll discover if your muse gives me voice.
