    Poetry in three lines

    Inspired by Olly's "Suggestions?" thread,
    I've opened one for what I'd like to see:
    three lines, no more, of poetry.
    Aim low, hit high. Surprise.

    Oops! Already did that one, I'll have to think of another that isn't a haiku.

    Dark Ages

    This is a tale from long ago
    Before you and me, and all you know
    Back to a time of darkness and fear abound.

    Weekend's over.

    Love is not
    the spark of meeting
    but the flame that results

    Without a Shot (Lost)

    cannot absorb, without lashing back
    ten times in passive directions.

    Cool!
    “Fools” said I, “You do not know
    Silence like a cancer grows
    Hear my words that I might teach you
    Take my arms that I might reach you”
    But my words like silent raindrops fell
    And echoed in the wells of silence : Simon & Garfunkel


    Those who enjoy stirring the chamber-pot should be required to lick the spoon.

    Our job as writers is to make readers dream, to infiltrate their minds with our words and create a new reality; a reality not theirs, and not ours, but a new, unique combination of both.

    A man in possession of a wooden spoon must be in want of a pot to stir.
