Rhyme Or Reason

Free me from this bold transgression, Random words without expression. No clear thought from them unfolding, I’d rather listen to a scolding. My plead is this, if not profound, Please mute thy instrument of its sound. For better yet it’d surely be, If some message the reader could not see. Please add some rhyme, or at least a rhythm, Expound on something, begin with a given. They say that the wind as it rustles the trees, It’s only a wind ‘til one calls it a breeze. Chaos will come with no rhyme or reason, To thy own words be true, no need for treason.

I appreciate how you craft your poems leaving the strong message at the end. Your poems are a gentle unfurling. The rhyme or reason in this case is being true to one's self. Thank you.

Oh, Bill, thanks so much. I couldn't agree more. Unfortunately, we have too many on the site who do exactly what you have so bravely pointed out.
