Poetic Licence

Poetic Licence I've been granted my Poetic Licence, Which allows me to write as I find. Exaggeration here, embellishment there, A free spirited open mind. With vivid inspired imagination, I see clearly the world around me, Never letting the truth spoil a good story, My pen writing the things I see. As I look from my bedroom window, An apartment in an industrial town. Wildebeest migrate to the Serengeti, Silhouette of Giraffe, as the sun goes down. Fishing boats come to safe harbour, Greedy Seagulls stealing their cargo. The full Moon appears over the horizon, Illuminates the seascape all aglow. Stonehenge is in the far distance, A Spiritual place of ancient times. Eagles and Red Kites soar up above, I’ve added this line because it rhymes. Camels roam the hot dusty Desert, Tribesmen take fine goods to trade. Crocodiles in Wetlands, South Florida At home in their tropical Everglade. Bluebells are singing in the Meadow, Tulips and Daffodils harmonise. How wonderful, thoughts so inventive, A world seen through imaginative eyes.

Of course they really exist, just like my date with Johnny Depp tomorrow when he will be dressed like a pirate (but w/ good teeth.) You do not need that last stanza for clarifications sake (I say that because it reminds me of something I'd write out of uncertainty about the readers take). This inspires me to create a poem about my own imagined and preferred world. You did a great job with content, rhyme, flow and wit. I really enjoyed being here. All the best ... CayCay
