Keeping It Real

Keeping It Real Empty Keeping It Real

Post  mikeschultz on Thu Feb 23 2012, 10:24

Poetry, love, and thrice daily, a meal,
The few external stimulants of his life,
He will use only these to keep it real.

His mind, a sponge for all he can feel,
Recombine in terms of existential strife.
Poetry, love, and thrice daily, a meal,

Nature’s nurture, attempting to reveal
Words that yet echo from deep inside.
He will use only these to keep it real.

He seeks comfort writing a Villanelle,
The form a boundary in a chaotic life.
Poetry, love, and thrice daily, a meal,

Will he write them, silent time may tell,
The words to speak, thought midwife,
He will use only these to keep it real.

Nature and Life he studies in parallel,
Diving long-tailed sea duck, Oldwife,
Poetry, love, and thrice daily, a meal.
He will use only these to keep it real.

Thank you very much. And yes this one is very autobiographical. Apart from social criticism and philosophical thoughts, I am one of my favorite things to write about. doh

Thanks again.
