Waltz – 3/4 time

I’ve found a

rhythm which

helps me with

poetry

also en

hances the

vast world I

know and see:

*

I hold the

hands of my

friends and my

family

lifted by

music and

kind loving

company;

*

We travel

one two three

through life’s di

versity

dancing with

gusto through

fear and ad

versity.

*

Some of you

might like to

dance in my

footsteps the

waltz is such

fun and it’s

perfectly

free!

  1. Me again. Again WordPress is playing me for a sucker, so writersblogq, or nobodysreadingme, are the names by which you know me better.
    I struggled with this at first, I did. I’m still a newcomer to the world of poetry, so cut me some slack
    Then I got it. I read it with the correct cadences, and it worked.
    I’ll get better, I really will. In the meantime, expect me to make a complete idiot of myself.
    I’ll get there. I’m just having to adjust the way I read, and at my age that’s not easy, but so far it’s being a rewarding experience

    1. Hi nobodysreadingme. I’m glad you persevered. I have done a lot of dancing in my time, so the waltz beat is a friend to me. It has pushing power – is relentless, but pretty. One of the other poets I read on here is J Matthew Waters at http://jdubqca.com/. He has a great reading voice and posts up voice recordings of his poems. Maybe take a listen. We all have different ways of using our senses, but I think they can be stretched to make things richer for us. I’ll be back later to visit your pages.

please feel free to comment on these poems - all feedback appreciated. :)
