Poetry Lesson

Take a pinch of boredom
then stir it in your mind,
just like routing in the rubbish
itís amazing what you find.

Add a splash of fantasy
mixed well with truth or lies
then let it flow out freely
with a hint that it is wise.

Donít feel that you are cheating
although maybe this is true,
for the beauty of creation
will be sure to shine right through.

Your words penned as a poet
bare your soul for all to find
all the trash or truth or wisdom
youíve been hiding in your mind.

You must lose your inhibitions
writing everything you feel,
only then when youíre addicted
will your poetry be real.

Your penís then drawn to paper
as your muse joins in the fight,
you may even lose perception
of whatís day and what is night.

But itís worth it for the feeling
that youíve satisfied your need
to try to plant in others
just a little of your seed!

Routing - Rooting
Oh how I hate/love the English language!!!

After a challenge by my better half of the word 'Routing' (in this case meaning rummaging) I have spent quite a while checking several 'English' Dictionaries to see if I was in error.

Joan said it should be 'rooting'

Interesting results, both in the Oxford and the Cambridge and many others. it appears that in some 'routing' is defined as making a route although they insist its primary spelling is 'routeing' which I have never seen. But they say it is also used for 'rummaging' although that the 'e' may sometimes be dropped for this purpose.

In others 'Rooting' is primarily used for rooting plants or setting down one's own roots though again it can be used for 'rummaging'

If we English cannot agree on our language what chance as anybody else got!!!

I must stop reading my own poetry as it can give me a headache....

R & R



I would rather be rooting than routing

Back in the days..... I cant understand Joan wanting to root in the rubbish?

Cant specifically say if I have rooted in Oxford or Cambridge just a bit of rummaging through the draws I think

You could root for either team on the Thames.

Hope this clarifies things a little

bravo
it is why I don't mind the struggle of creative writing -- that seed that I might plant that inspires someone else to stretch their mind.

I used to draw and paint, but could not convey myself enough, then played music, wrote songs, but still could not find a "seed" to plant, then started concentrating on creative writing and now my life has been reduced to your poem.

Very nice, Bravo.

Mixing metaphors
If you're combining cooking, gardening and rummaging through refuse, I think I would prefer Joan prepare dinner. You just relax and get over your headache. I do love the melodic tone of "all the trash or truth or wisdom," however.
