"Little Voice" - Welcome to a World of Poetry!

If a stranger asked you, "what is a poem?", how would you answer? A rhyme? Words that rhythmically sing an opinion?
Deep thoughts arranged lyrically on a page?

When it comes down to it, it's very hard to wrap up poetry in a single definition. And why would you want to? It means something different to everyone, so why try to cage it? Why try and bind the freedom of thought and expression of self? What a depressing notion.

Wordsworth defined poetry as "the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings;", which sounds pretty good as far as I'm concerned. Feelings and thoughts power poetry and when a powerful surge of raw emotion hits, a poet needs to express.

So, this is me and my "Little Voice". Over the coming months I'll be writing about life and love and anything else that takes my fancy. I'll be playing with words, rhythimically and visually, and feeding my innermost feelings into the web.

Lots of updates coming soon - please check back soon for updates!

While you're waiting for my own creations, why not read the visitor submitted poems in the "Poetry By Others" page!

Ode to a Sprout...

Small and green,
you are not a kidney bean.

Hardly a 10-line stanza of iambic verse, but an honest and frank summary I'm sure you'll agree. And why not!? I like sprouts - they just don't get enough recognition.
