It's mostly about relationships and the whole yin / yang thing between people,
especially those who love and live together. Or it's about the absurdity and
inevitability of growing old. Or maybe the mystery of life and all its uncertainties.
It's nearly always rhythm and rhyme for me. And none of this King James English
or convoluted sentence structure. Make it flow and make it fit today's lingo and
styles of communicating, or else just go read the classics, drink Sangria wine
and sniff some roses.
Active verbs and interesting metaphor give me some punch. Basically old school rhythm & rhyme.
However, I do enjoy the occasional excursion into free verse, if I want to focus in on descriptive
school-of-conscious flights of fancy. Oh yeah, don't forget some nostalgic symbolics. I strive to communicate those experiences,
emotions and thoughts common to mankind, but in a way unlike I've seen or heard it put into words.
Hopefully it works for others who may care to read. If it doesn't flow, please let me know.
I am open to and welcome to your critique or comment. I remain, unabashedly yours.
