A few of my quotes over the years:

 

Listing A Personal View Of What Poetry Is

1. Poetry is a stone, turned to expose to searching winds of a once hidden earth.
Robert J. Lindley

2. Poetry is art, mind painted, heart colored and fire risen.
Robert J. Lindley

3. Poetry is a fruit, hanging on a bountiful tree, begging to fall.
Robert J. Lindley

4. Poetry is an ever expanding ocean, begging ever more creatures to swim in its swirling depths.
Robert J. Lindley

5. Poetry is cake on a golden platter, eaten with fork, spoon, butter knife or greedy hands.
Robert J. Lindley

6. Poetry is cherry blossoms, crying for the soft, cool winds to wave their beauty to the awaiting sun and the gasping skies.
Robert J. Lindley

7. Poetry is glistening dewdrops falling upon virgin ground to gift dawn's hope and night's desire to match brilliance of glistening moonbeams.
Robert J. Lindley

8. Poetry is a poet's heart and soul uniting to bless others, while temporarily shielding searching souls against this dark world's poison tipped arrows.
Robert J. Lindley

9. Poetry is brightly sent musical notes that heart sees, mind colors and spirit longs to record.
Robert J. Lindley

10. Poetry is ink blotted, soul driven splashes that cry to be read, beg to be understood and unabashedly sing to give to its dear readers.
Robert J. Lindley

11.Poetry is a colorful bird, in heavenly flight to a paradise that awaits man's sincere pleading heart and desirous spirit.
Robert J. Lindley

12. Poetry is a child happily playing, a mother joyfully singing and a father blessed to have and so very dearly appreciate loving both.
Robert J. Lindley

**************************

My biography will be very limited for now.   Here , I can express myself in poetic form but in real life I much rather prefer to be far less forward  I am a 60 year old American citizen , born and raised in the glorious South! A heritage that I am very proud of and thank God for as it is a blessing indeed ~

Currently married to my beautiful young wife(Riza) a lovely filipina  lady and we have a fantastic 7 year old son, Justin ~

I have truly lived a very wild life as a younger man but now find myself finally very happily settled down for the duration of my life~

I decided to rest here and express myself with hopes that it may in some way help others, for I see here a very diverse  and fine gathering of poets, artists, and caring folks~

Quickly finding friends here that amaze me with such great talent~~

I invite any and all to comment on my writes and send me soup mail to discuss

whatever seems important to them ~

Part One, - Blog, On The Importance Of Seeking And Maintaining

A Higher Level Of Creativity- ( A New Poetry Form Included)

**************

Blog, Creativity is a must for any poet.

This new poetry form was an idea I had

and first wrote poems in- back in 1984,

When I was 30 years old. I started this blog

in January of 2017. Decided to finish it this

New Year of 2022. Five years from start to

 finish, yes I am oft slow about completing

 tasks.  RJL…

 

Subject- new poetry form- ( "  Lind30 " )

7,7,7, 9

Either form be in number of syllables -or match in number of words-

Rhymed or unrhymed. New form Lind30…..

 

First three examples are in syllable count-plus rhyme

 

(1.)

Within Beauty, Oft Lies Cold Hard Truth

 

Within morn's breathe a reprieve

Sweet breeze and understanding

Does not this world deep deceive

Nature serves up its reprimanding.

 

Robert J. Lindley, 1-09-2022

Lind30 Rhyme- (7,7,7,9)

 

 

(2.)

 

We That Obey The Ticking Of The Clock

 

Time's call, we try to defeat

Morning's notice 'oft a pain

Rush, rush to cold breakfast eat

Good God, Sally's cat has gone insane!

 

Robert J. Lindley, 1-09-2022

Lind30 Rhyme- (7,7,7,9)

 

(3.)

 

When Love Enters An Eager, Willing Heart

 

Romantic heart I adore

Her kisses, blessings divine

Pray I this, always for more

Ravishing desserts, taste of her wine.

 

Robert J. Lindley, 1-09-2022

Lind30 Rhyme- (7,7,7,9)

 

 

( Next two examples are in word count and rhyme )

 

(1.)

 

A Small Bit Of Philosophy And Wit

 

Life, a great mystery to be sure

Existence a true nod to our dreams

Light and Truth, both are set pure

To oppose breadth and depths of mankind's dark schemes.

 

Robert J. Lindley, 1-09-2022

Lind30 Wordcount and Rhyme

 

 

(2.)

 

Oh No,  Not Another High Unpaid Bill

 

He said, dear Katy bar the door

This bill has me so hopping mad

I cannot stand this robbery any more

Give me another shot of whiskey, just a tad!

 

Robert J. Lindley, 1-09-2022

Lind30 Wordcount and Rhyme

*********

Note 1 -

This blog and this my new poetry form was begun back

in Jan of 2017,  I have only now returned to finish it up

The number 30 applies as in syllable count or else in

the number of words…. Either one may be used thus

giving the poet far more leeway into creativity. Using

the rhymed version, whether it be ABAB OR AABB is

a far higher degree of difficulty imho.

Give it a try, even as a diversion or on a mere whim-

Creativity being the foundation upon which a poet must

live, breath-exist, imho. RJL

Note 2-

If any questions, feel free to soupmail me here.

I hope this new form may give to poets another

way.avenue to pursue in their poetry journey.

Comments are welcomed on this new blog.

*********

Posted on 1-12-2022

Edit below has been added for greater clarity -- Thanks Rob...

One each- of the four main derivatives of the Lind30 poetry form.

 

(1.)Lind30SR, (2.) Lind30SU. (3.)Lind30WCR, (4.) Lind30WCU,

 

*

(1.)

Mystery That Is Youth's Forward Journey

 

I sang of sky's blue-cast worth

dawn's echoes glad to be heard

ocean's great unrivalled girth

beauty sent by Southern mockingbird.

 

Robert J. Lindley,

Lind30SR ( Lindley 30 Syllables Rhymed )

7,7,7,9

 

(2.)

Under Midnight Moon, Her Tears Splashed Down

 

She wept in her darkest hour

under moon disenchanted

life had its sword plunged deep

eager to feel her falling wet tears.

 

Robert J. Lindley,

Lind30SU ( Lindley 30 Syllables Unrhymed )

7,7,7,9

 

(3.)

A Gift From Sweeping Depths Of Nature's Bounty

 

Nature into this soul sent its light

As a beacon safeguards ships at sea

She with saving grace set heart alight

Waking the youthful optimism and the courage within me.

 

Robert J. Lindley,

Lind30WCR ( Lindley 30 Word Count Rhymed )

7,7,7,9

 

(4.)

Night Spent In Poe's And Raven's Former House

 

House creaked, the walls mumbled wailing curses

In seething darkness I felt so alone

As dark shadows invaded through window's opening

Came torture of aching silence as lost hope began.

 

Robert J. Lindley,

Lind30WCU, ( Lindley 30 Word Count Unrhymed )

7,7,7,9

 

Note:

Of course these are the 4 main derivates that can

even further set pathways for ever greater creativity

in this new form, Lind30… Other subdivisions within

these four can be found a. explored and enjoyed.

I thank you my friend. If this new form gives poets another avenue to increase their creativity and enjoyment in their art, in their desire to be more expressive in shorter poems then its purpose will have been fulfilled and a positive contribution made, imho .. God bless.

Thank you my friend. I hope that you may decide to gift us a poem or two using this new form. It was thought up as a way to give greater creativity in/on shorter poems. To give more leeway and as well allow more variations that sit well with deeper depths in the the form's mandated four short verses. God bless.

Thank you my friend. Yes, rhyme scheme is the poet's choice.. As is the versions specifying no rhyming. The 30 count is primary whether it be in syllable count or else word count...Looking forward to seeing/reading your use if you give it a try! God bless.
Date: 1/11/2022 4:04:00 PM
Well done, Robert. I like the new forms you created. I will have to try a few...Always a thrill to write a form that I have not yet tried. Thanks for the mail and the blog. Stay well my good friend. Charlie

Thank you my friend, always a pleasure to both read and as well hear from you! This blog was born from a desire to give aid to others and hope they benefit and enjoy a change. As the new Lind30 poetry form gives structure for greater creativity in shorter compositions- Especially so with its many creative derivatives and sub-forms the poets will conjuere up methinks. God bless..

Thank you my friend. Adding in the humor was my muse and her usual proclivity to stir me to see the reality that not all in life is dark and dreary. Sometimes she has a very valid point and thus always loves to stab me with it! May I see, you gift this site with a very fine offering using the new form? God bless..

Thank you my friend. I hope you may decide to use the Lind30 new form. It has a lot of leeway in the creative department- as the poem may be either rhymed or unrhymed. The 30 may be in syllable count or word count -wit that being either rhymed or else unrhymed. Each adds to the creative aspect. Even the rhyme scheme also has choices.. God bless..

My friend, my example poems dealt with rhyme-but unrhymed is also a part of the new form should a poet want to write unrhymed verses.Prime in the form is the number 30. Whether it is the syllable count or else the word count. Rhyme and unrhymed are both allowed.. So give it a shot- but let me know if you do, I'd love to see your new creation. God bless..
