Poetically Incorrect ?
~Marge Tindal~ 1999

I don't own a dictionary,
or even a dinosaurus-of-a-thesaurus.
All the poems penned
come from within,
this poet's little heart.

They're composed
of the paths I've walked,
some happy and some grim.
But most of all
the paths I've traversed
met the path of a friend.

And in the meeting
of heart to heart,
my friend and I
made poems start.

Therein the poem was writ,
without my knowing, of course.
The words I use
are merely
my friends
of choice.

Thus, I have never been smite
with worrying if it was right.
The part that's really tough
is trying to type them
fast enough.

Unfortunately, I've not time enough
to pause for metaphors or similes.
I can barely keep up
with the thoughts
as the come to me.

They may not be poetically correct,
but I care not a bit.
It only matters that I pen them
before they sprout wings
and flit.

Of course they're correct, Marge. This is mainly how I write poetry too.
