So I know that I wasn’t able to post all the way through NaPoWriMo, and Im sorry but that is because I have been incredibly busy. Add computer issues on top of that and uploading content is near impossible. But as I intend to add a permanent poetry segment once I have other issues resolved, I thought I’d post a few to see what kind of feedback I get.
Here is one I wrote a while back after reading articles on technology consuming the life of most North Americans. Know I am by know means saying technology is an issue, but it is something we can’t ignore. This is a poetic take on it.
The incessant blinking always reminds me
To return to the electronic world that constantly binds me
and when I’m trapped in the darkness all alone
all I have to do is check my phone
Once you put two and two together you will reveal
that the electronic world will never yield from the night into the wee hours
we all are weak to the LEDs powers
After the light has gone dim
The electronic will always win
So embrace it while you can
for the phone is in your always in your hand
So I quickly brainstormed a haiku about… Well consumerism. This is not a topic I normally cover, but here I go.
How Some Find Beauty (The T-Shirt)
I touch, hold, caress
It’s warm and calming cotton
And the shirt’s half off!
EDIT: So apparently, people don’t know what I meant by the poem. The character is admiring a shirt in a store that is 50% off the regular price and this intrigues them. The poem is portraying how people are seduced by prices and shopping.
I bring to you a haiku. A haiku is a type of very short Japanese poetry that is three lines long. The first and last line are five syllables while the second is seven, to make a total of seventeen syllables. They often convey a short but precise story or description of something or someone. This haiku is small fragment of a what could be potential story. It is a synopsis of the narrator’s feelings on an issue.
I sat and waited
But the light never came close
Is it scared of me?
So what do you think this could be about? Yes, I had an idea in mind when I wrote it, but I’m curious to see what others internet from it. Let me know in the comments.
Be sure to check out National Poetry Writing Month! Expect more posts tomorrow. (I’m half caught up!)
Some poems are nonsensical, and open to interpretation. Here is one.
The walker walked and fell on the floor
His accident was full of gore
I’m sorry to say
The man died that day
And now he can’t walk anymore
So here is another limerick. I plan on posting limericks for the next few days so be prepared. My new method for writing limericks is not think of a creative idea, but improvise a first line build the rest of the limerick around it. This way, my poems are either fantastic or absolutely terrible, so let me know how this one is. I give to you, The Man from Boston.
The Man from Boston
As the man from Boston walked in
to the Red Sox game with his kin
He started to pout
when the batter struck out
Then he tripped and fell on his chin
So for the first day of NaPoWriMo, I am going to do a limerick. A limerick typically follows the rhyme scheme A-A-B-B-A. That means the first two lines and the last line rhyme while the third and fourth line rhyme. It is named after the city in Ireland, Limerick, and are usually humorous. Don’t worry, you’ll get plenty humorous limericks later on, but this one is…actually extremely depressing. But here it goes…
A Limerick for the Hopeless
As the man was leaving the store
Hatred ate at his core
For his son died today
And he worked for low pay
He felt regret as he walked out the door
Sorry for that depressing limerick, but day two is coming soon!
Here is the first post of my return, and a good way to start it off is with some big news in the poetry world, and that is that this month (April)is National Poetry Writing Month or NaPoWriMo. So in honour of this, I’m pleased to share I am bringing poetry to D.K. Phoenix.
Every day this month I will post a poem I have composed and talk about different types of poems. Yes, am I aware I am eight days late on this, but I have the poems for those days prepared and will be posting them over the next week.
So get excited for NaPoWrimo. I encourage all of you to start writing poetry this month. For more information check out http://www.napowrimo.net/ .
And as always, may the Phoenix Unity live on

This week, I give to you quotes by a man we all look up to, Walt Disney. His dream will always be carried on through many generations. Here are a few of his famous quotes.
“The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.”
“If you can dream it you can do it.”
“It’s kind of fun to do the impossible.”
“I have been up against tough competition all my life. I wouldn’t know how to get along without it.”
” When you’re curious, you find lots interesting things to do.”
I hope you enjoyed those marvelous quotes. Remember to let me know what you want to see posted next.
