Poetry Stories

As William Wordsworth said, poetry is β€œthe spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings.” Indeed, poetry employs rhythm, language, rhetorical devices, and figures of speech to convey an imaginative, emotional experience. Poetry contrasts with prose, or everyday writing, and often uses elaborate diction and figurative language which conceals deeper meaning.

Some die Some starve Some cry Most cut And they will be missed Some are alone Some are lost in a crowd Some yell out and moan Most do not voice their troubles aloud And they will be missed

Excepting five or six, all of these haiku are about lips and kissing. Some Haiku for you, lips & a few, sweet, wine-touched kisses, too.
