Best Harry Horsman Poems

+ Fav Poet


In you i fear most
never ending one way street
one’s mentality
broken and in love destroyed
who’s ever been there for me?
Love a dual carriage way
never straight mixed emotions
yet for me so blind
everything to you given
trust, no more i can’t.

here i'm experimenting with a different 
form of poetry, yet using the Tanka..
calling it the 4 T's (toe to toe tanka.
see the syllable count and you will get it'''

    Hi Andrea I tried one in Harry's style and called it toe to toe. I enjoyed trying it out. Also Good morning to you Harry. I hope you have a great day.

    hmmm, not sure I get why it's called Toe to toe Tanka. Did you invent it all yourself, Harry? What a fun thing to do.It seems I saw this the other day but it must have been used as an example by someone for this form because I have no comment here from the other day. How cool that you inspired the poets I see here to try your new form!

    I feel you took these thoughts right out of my you were able to get such black and white...but you did it beautifully..

    You are the tanka master and now a new form! Wow, Harry, how do you do it! I will try this sometime soon. I did write a weird kind of tanka, and I hope you have a look at it when you can. This is a very deep write you've penned here. Unfortunately, once trust is broke...restoring it is near night impossible. Hugs

    Interesting experiment Trusting in God is the only way I know, as the Lord is my only fear! I enjoyed seeing it from your view.

    Oka, you make me want to try it too, I'll write one and call it Harry's Form Of Poetry you will be sure to let me know if I did it right? Enjoyed your poem Harry, spring is in the air, and there is talk of love all around, so I'll try and write one on love xxx
