Recently I felt the need to write a poem for a friend whose parents had passed away.  This was unusual because I had never written a poem before.  Being such a great distance away from her, I wanted to give her something that was not so much sad, as thought provoking, to be of comfort, to assure her that not all was lost, she would have memories to treasure.  I was surprised at my ability to write a poem.  They can be quite complex.  I also discovered that not all poems needed to rhyme, but that they may merely have a lyrical sense.  It is also regarded as a form of literary art, with  at times evocative qualities and can be open to multiple interpretations.  Why don’t you drive on over to my Poem page and check it out for yourself.  Give me your thoughts.  I also have another one there called “Loosen Up” a small off the cuff if you will, from a recent comment a friend made.
