Poetry Stories

As William Wordsworth said, poetry is “the 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.

A series of poems that touch on many subjects, but hopefully carry a message that people can relate to.

A little sci-fi, not in the usual format. Using intelligence, planning & understanding of what can bring good outcomes & thus perhaps avoid scenes & stories of dystopic worlds and mutants. Who knows, it may turn out all right : )
