WHAT'S IN A NAME?

A rose by any other name
Is disgraceful to the rose
No other flower has such fame
Among all those seen in shows

Whether at a funeral or a wedding
The rose stands out more
At a birth, or a special setting

Here's a quote for us to keep:
"A rose by any other name", said Shakespeare,
"Would smell as sweet."
Logically, one may declare
He was absolutely right,
A name is merely a device,
Arbitrary for each "thing",
Association has the meaning,
And will be enduring,
A lesson well worth...Read More

In Their Rooks
Are you a Poet or tactician,

some would scrub and some would blame

finding safety in their books

What's In A Name

Through the hushed whisper of the breeze
Flowing through the majestic circling pine trees

The mess on the passenger side floor of my dodge van is prose... or poetry.

Premium Member Seduction In Spring - A Haiku Garland
Cherry Blossoms Bloom 
Resplendently dressed in Pink
Seducing the Spring

Glory unfolding 
They release their sweet fragrance
Pirouette and twirl

Music from the breeze 
With limbs so graceful swaying
Blushing and bowing 

Time of renewal 
A fleeting symbol of life
In two weeks farewell

Ethereal Muse

About my name.
If only I could have had more input!
But you were so busy reading
"What to Expect" that you
Weren't expecting how much everyone would hate my name!
Rhymes, people, rhymes! Why do you think I was kicking so hard?

About a name.

Call A Spade A Spade
Straight from the heart, 
Speak truly and frankly; 
However coarse it may be, 
Say it right with sincerity.

Still, has sweet fragrance; 
But it spells a big difference
Between tango and disco dance.

Look me in the eyes,...Read More

Anastasia, Shakespeare's Answer
So far away from where you are
I barely know who you are
I've never been so confused, so confident, so conflicted
Shakespeare once asked
'Would a rose by any other name sound just as sweet'
I finally found the answer in twin brown eyes

I don't know why Cliches are Bad

Though "Self praise is no recommendation"
Still I know I'm His best creation.

WHAT RHYMES WITH DISCOMBOBULATED

I cannot find a word to rhyme with "Opus"
to try and do so is incredibly hopeless.
Even using words like "Door-hinge"
is cheating in rhyming it with "Orange."

No rhyme for "Purple" nor for "Ninth"

Hatred
What’s in a name?
That which we call a rose by any other name, would still smell as sweet.

EPIPHANY: A POET IN LOVE
Did Shakespeare ever fall in love?
A rose by any other name would 
stink as sweet!

Magdalene was his favorite disciple?
What miracles would he impress her 
with
So as to savor her forbidden apple?
O woman!
