Critic Word Paste Horizons

descend fade to dim critic word paste horizons
art conceived art discussed are now emotionally
planes apart different creations prodigy births

cannot have the same value to artist and critic
observe critic spokesperson mouthpiece smiling
wants artist to imitate expressionism or cubism

sonnet haiku ballad epic other forms because...
whatever Petrarch Shakespeare unique created
their own personal sonnet forms to their rules

Picasso conceived discarded styles like prostitutes
change clothing acquire costumes personalities
whatever suitable persona mask evolves is style

quite the fashion rage for imitators lacking own soul...
perceptions personalities rarely will genius tolerate
long production of copies when own irregular thoughts

drum beat demand scream to be recorded produced...

Poemhunter Wants To Improve.

I will help you improve,
If you choose to improvise,
Break free from current accepted manners and rights
Show willingness to be a poets pride
Give a vacation to economic obsessions
Allow yourself to appreciate the art of reflection
Accept that poems are not insurance policies,
Sonnets don't necessarily do what a sonnet should,
That Shakespeare could write both plays and poetry,
Self goals are allowed in verse and vanity.
It is not a platform, nor a bazaar,
Tis a place where peep the most bizarre,
Mundane, brilliant, average, all kinds
Masters of creating landscapes of mind.
Do not sell me a poem, I do not need a fire extinguisher,
It is not plastic credit, literature is all about merit,
Merit of a decade hence,
Being born in the womb of our present.
Hardik Vaidya

Prose And Poetry

While prose limits, posits, pretends,
To narrow mundane meaning binds,
Fails to touch heart’s deepest core,
Frozen snow blocking freedom’s shore,
Fails when to explore new crests, finds
No rainbow shades, comes to dead ends,
We know why caveman chose to sing
Ere used speech communicating.

Yet, today’s cut-and-dry world speaks—
Prose to touch base, a mundane need,
Poems to reach rarefied peaks,
Oft failing still poorly indeed,
Whilst imitating a dull prose,
The rose forgets when it is rose.
This unusual sonnet is set in tetra metre. The
octave is rhymed: abccbadd, and the sestet

Longing For The Sea And Camelot


“If people want to build a ship, ”
Antoine de Saint Exupery once said,
“for pleasure or to go on some long trip,
don’t tell them to find wood, and in a shed
work on it with a thousand tasks
but make sure every one of them can see
their goal so everybody asks
to help, because they’re longing for the sea.”
Though everybody has to learn
how to survive in deserts that are hot,
the major goal for which they ought to yearn
is not for camels but for Camelot.

This poem is a free adaptation of a saying by Antoine de Saint Exupery, cited by Rabbi David Wolpe in his devar torah for Shabbat Yitro,5770:

Yearning to Learn

By Rabbi David Wolpe
Knowing where to find information is not the same as possessing it. Each fact we learn is arranged in the matrix of all we already know. One who knows how to Google 'Shakespeare sonnets' cannot be compared to the one who has memorized Shakespeare's sonnets. The latter carries the words with him. The former is an accountant of knowledge; he knows where the treasure is, but it does not belong to him. Real education instills a desire for knowledge, not merely the tools to acquire it. We are shaped by what we know and what we yearn to know. The Talmud tells us that as a young man Hillel was so desperate for words of Torah that he climbed on the roof of the study house to hear the discourses of his great predecessors, Shemaya and Avtalion. Noticing the darkness, they looked up and saw the young man on the skylight, covered with snow. The rabbis rescued Hillel, washed and anointed him, and sat him by the fire. 'If you want to build a ship, ' wrote Antoine de Saint Exupery, 'don't drum up people together to collect wood and don't assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the sea.' First teach children to love learning; the web will wait.
