A tiny ripple lost within a wide, swift flowing river of words

Hidden in the prose, lonely little syllables... November's Haiku My first faux Haiku in three months, and probably my last for at least another month. It's NANOWRIMO time again folks. Nuff said. Sign in to see full entry.

Nonsense about nonsense

A conspiracy, factual or just theory, grabs our attention. Yeah, I know. “What the hell does he think he's doing?” The answer is: I'm just being notapoet. If that doesn't satisfy your curiosity, or ire, waste a click on “Sex & Violence Sells” for all the gory details. Yeah, I'm just kidding. It is... Sign in to see full entry.

Thunder boomer kind of day

Flash of light...Keee-Rak! Theater of light and sound... summer afternoon. Just a little reflection on recent Central Carolina weather – and the weather forecast for most of the week. The rain is pleasant and needed, though I would prefer a gentler symphony with the pyrotechnics more muted and in... Sign in to see full entry.

Hold the celebration! I ain't made it to a thousand clicks yet. Drat!

Twiddling thumbs, waiting, stuck on nine and ninety-nine, for just one more click. What a sad end to a poetic career – even if it was the career of a self-professed non-poet. Just kidding around, boys and girls. In truth I find it amazing that I ever got past 100 clicks, much leess approached 1,000.... Sign in to see full entry.

Poetry in the machine, or the lazy man's way to pen Haiku

Tweet tweet go the birds, red squirrels hiding in trees... daffodils growing. Not your cup of tea? Well, how about this one? Tourists everywhere, busy shops and busy roads... squirrels climbing trees. Yeah, I don't like either one as much as the one in my previous post. All three were the result of...

Hank, tank, bank, or maybe rank...

I'm coming up blank, can't think of a rhyme or verse... it couldn't be worse if I were a real poet. But since I'm not, I don't even feel guilty about such a sneaky little bit of nonsense. Non-poets have no shame. Sign in to see full entry.

Pome time with some rhyme

No tedious tome, just a mini-pome, not much more than trash to read in a flash, and make you smile a little while. I should probably apologize for this, but I won't other than to say, “whadja expect from a you know what?” Sign in to see full entry.

Touching base pome

Just a line or two, a “how are you? I am doing well, and hope you are swell.” If this smells like poor poetry – Well, you're gosh-danged right, so sue me. --notapoet, an' I know it Sign in to see full entry.
