The Arts Web Show… Video Result of the Humorous Poem Contest

Posted in Blog, Humor?, Poetry Reading with tags , , , , , , , on January 26, 2011 by dustus

If you’ve been following my work a long time, or know a thing or two about the blog scene, then you’ll probably recognize Richard North (aka Kseverny) and his 1-man cast of characters known as The Arts Web Show from out of the UK.

Richard & I have known each other since I began posting online, and truth be told (I’ve said this before), his continuous encouragement helped me through what was a rough beginning to blogging. In fact, his encouragement challenged me to be more creative and made me reconsider quitting.

Anyway, a few weeks ago when I hosted One Shot Wednesday, I announced a humorous poem contest. In the spirit of good fun, many poets submitted poetry for the consideration of having it read in a creative way in an Arts Web Show skit—for which Richard does all the production & continues to build a following.

Eric Alder

To make a long story short, I forwarded all the entries to Richard without names attached, and he selected a poem by poet, writer, and photoblogger Eric “Bubba”Alder for a creative poetry reading.

*It will also be my pleasure to spotlight Eric on One Stop Poetry, which will be posted at noon EST. So stay check that out later today.

Branching Out

Posted in Blog, Image Poetry, Poetry Reading, writing with tags , , , , , , , , , on July 13, 2010 by dustus

Synaptic offshoots reaching frayed
Spreading from the roots time saved
Standing calm past wind-waved howling
Memory challenged, blue sky surrounding

Leafless, open, elements routing
Cloudless, minus any doubting
Branching out to find a way
Not thinking over
Life each day

There are many zones
Perspective agreements
Representations from memory
Forever held secrets

From beyond recall
Initial blank wall
Comfort and love
Banished withdrawal

Wondrous emotions
Once ran away
Every fond moment
Remains etched in the brain

Thought after all
What’s there to mind?
Circadian beats?
Wind through chimes?
Repeating rhymes?
Your heart in time?
Still life seems best
When you unwind

I am happy to share this poem (my 350th post!) for both Jingle’s Thursday Poetry Rally & One Shot Wednesday!

Thanks for the awards and visiting my blog. The rallys have been outstanding & I’m proud to participate every chance I get. Thanks, Jingle! Your fantastic Thursdays bring people together.

My nominee(s) this week are Brian Miller, Leslie Moondustwriter, and Pete Marshall. The reason I select them all is because they have worked very hard to create One Stop. Cheers!
