Is That A Poem You’re Writing - part VII

        VII
Is that a poem you’re writing?
Are you just going to let the words flow?
And leave the verse blank, like grass on the bank
And wander wherever you go?

I think both approaches can work.. I like having a clear idea in my mind about what I'm writing and only start after it is actually somewhat complete inside my head. However, I think just going freely and letting thoughts take their course can also be a good thing at times :)

This stanza is ok. This stanza asks the same question, but in a different form, as the first stanza. This is someone who does not organize or think ahead; they just go ahead. I am not sure about that the "grass on the bank" analogy here. I already address this in my first poetic response.
Neil McLeod More than 1 year ago
