Yes, this has probably been attempted before here, but what the hey.
Offer commentary, constructive criticism, or your own work to discuss. Ideally, I'd like to see this evolve into something more organic, where anyone with an itch to write or just an itch to read poetry can enjoy.
I'll offer up one of my older bits to get things started.
Once Upon A Dream (A Life In the Year)
I slept and dreamed 'midst angry waters,
too far away from sinful minds.
Somehow I knew the clocks had broken
so frozen peaks became the tide,
and then I looked into the silver pennies falling from the sky.
A touch of spring disturbed my slumber.
Still frosty children came to hide.
Mighty illusions melt like summertime
as cloudy kings will soon arrive.
They come to bury me, but I have only just become alive.
Out from the cold
come the April stars that break the shroud
of the darkest night. Their warm embrace
fills the air with light, then dissipates
in the August of my life.
The autumn breeze blows quickly onward.
I harvest ashes in the night.
White bearded fields soon take position,
and icy winds howl back in spite.
I am alone again, waiting for the summer sun to rise...
