Hi, Elias! Great Etheree! You certainly are starting out on the right foot! I'm a PW newbie and I am learning a great deal from our venereal teacher! Ooops! "venerable" teacher! lol Welocme aboard!

Balladeer, here I come again with another Etheree. This time I made it a bit more difficult by rhyming alternate lines.

Poppa Pips

On
the news
this morning,
I heard that “Blues
Singer ~ Poppa Pips,
loses his cool and spews
epithets during concert!”
The fans went wild and their loud boos
could be heard more than a mile away!
~ I wonder what it was that lit his fuse?

Thank you all for your encouraging comments.

I hope to improve as a writer by doing more and more of these challenges.

Balladeer ~ I'm pleased my poetic package appeals to you. How's that for alliteration, Teach?

Elias ~ I too, enjoy the support and guidance that is offered in this comfortable classroom atmosphere.
We learn and have fun at the same time!

Chasing Dreams
By Paul Wilson


Why
did you
run from me
I thought you knew
that my love is real.
Lets start our lives anew
spending the rest of our days
together always just us two
riding rainbows high above the clouds
chasing dreams my love since we said I do

~~To share my poems with you is to share my heart with you~~

Mike... Thanks I hope being tardy with this homework doesn't get me in hot water with the teacher.

I
want you
to know that
a mere three weeks
has not allowed for
my memory of you
to completely diminish.
I can't pass a Barnes and Noble,
read a poem by Chuck Palahniuk,
or listen to The Spill Canvas without
nostalgic thoughts of you flooding my mind.
You taught me not to assume things but
it's hard not to assume the worst
when you were not effected,
or it just seemed that way.
It hurt to let go,
at least for me,
and I wont
forget
you.

...and an excellent attempt it is. Great form and good subject matter. With the exception of using "effected" instead of "affected", I find nothing wrong at all. Nicely done, miss
