Freeflow Poetry ‘Reality?’

'Bearer' (mixed media) by Lynda M Roberts


 This is an experiment I did from The Artswebshow.  It was great fun!  What you do is tune in to the music and just type – let that poetry run free in a free-flowing way.  It doesn’t matter if it doesn’t rhyme (half of mine doesn’t, in fact you can see the self-consciousness in the first half where it does;))  Please try it – you will be surprised to see what happens!

Darkness lightness – going for the middle path

Searching, –  reaching  in the aftermath

The every why and wherefore

Halts and hesitated


Never mind the aftershock

Of the small I AM

Stony fields of upright spires

And tall decaying trees

Rivers of a doubtless time

Which never wipes its feet

Gravel paths to nowhere

A hothouse sanctuary

And breath to blow you porridge with

Escapes and races free


Hesitating –

  1. And you did a fantastic job of it.
    It good to see your poetry.
    Is this where all of that happens then

    • Thanks K! Yes this is where it happens (though not often enough). I’m cutting the blogging down to regular (not daily, having completed a year of it) and I will post more on this than I have done. Ideally, I would like each blog to inform the other (hence my little time travel buttons:) ) We will see…I have plans for both these blogs, when I get the time

  2. Wonderful! It fits the music, beautifully. This brought to mind the music and I think that is a good thing!

    oh this is cool smooth pebbles .
    I mean -it rocks.

  4. Yay! So glad you tried this, Lynda. First, the texture of “bearer” looks great.

    “Searching, – reaching in the aftermath / The every why and wherefore / Halts and hesitated / Gone”
    Fantastic and applicable to much more than the music. The ending emphasizes the personal nature of the experience, a lyrical self-revelation of being in time and place. Excellent.

    • Great you like it Adam – it was great fun to do! Bearer was a (very mixed media) piece I did a while ago. If you look carefully there are vague references to knights (ghostly ones). Thanks for your kind comments – very appreciated:)
