If walls had ears!

If walls had ears!

There was a time when my words had a flow,

But deep inside me I felt inertly hollow,

As the world’s ears had something else to follow,

Slowly my words withered and turned shallow,

Feeling miserable, I hid my words in a vanishing burrow,

I wished if the invisible walls beneath had ears to follow,

To wake my words to bring back the bygone flow…

    1. Dear Anoop,

      I agree with beetleypete, and would like to commend you highly for writing this rhyming poem. Well done!

      For your information, I personally only write rhyming poems, often with end rhymes, internal rhymes as well as rhythmic devices, syllabic schemes, and other subtle or overt features, as I consider many of the non-rhyming ones that I routinely encounter to be too unstructured and ad hoc, their form (or lack thereof) even widely abused, exploited or misunderstood by those who lack the required imagination and discipline to achieve or maintain poetic excellence.

      For these reasons, I have decided that my poems should rhyme and have rhythmic schemes, syllabic patterns and other numeric properties and calligraphic considerations, as well as being wedded to my art, graphics and musical compositions.

      You are very welcome to peruse my poems concerning a variety of topics, which are accessible at https://soundeagle.wordpress.com/tag/poem/

      May you and beetleypete have a wonderful weekend! Happy October to both of you!

      Wishing that your words be awaken with bygone flow. . . . .

      1. Thank you for your kind note! Happy to see creative people comment and take note on poetry even in this era.. I’ll surely take a visit at your creations.

        1. You are very welcome, Anoop.

          By the way, when you access my main blog, please be informed that it will benefit from being viewed on a large screen of a desktop or laptop computer, since those lengthy multimedia posts and my blog could be too powerful and feature-rich for iPad, iPhone, tablet or other portable devices to handle properly or adequately.

          1. Der Anoop,

            In addition, since my posts and pages contain advanced styling and multimedia components plus animations, it is highly recommended to read my posts and pages directly on the blogs or websites where I have published them, so that you will be able to see and experience all of the refined and glorious details. Hence, it is prudent to refrain from using the WordPress Reader to access my blogs or websites because WordPress Reader can be considerably limited in how closely it reproduces contents of certain blogs or websites, given that it has to deal with a wide range of blogs or websites. It tends to ignore or strip away some styling and formatting components, and also fails to display animations, all of which are aplenty in my posts and pages. As a result, a post or page can look very different and even improper or amiss on the WordPress Reader. So, I tend to read posts and pages directly on the blogs or websites where they are published, especially when they contain animations, advanced styling and detailed intricacies like mine.

            For example, there are animations that I created in the post that you just visited at http://soundeagle.wordpress.com/2020/04/12/the-last-rag/

            The animations will be invisible or not working at all if you had visited the said post inside WordPress Reader. Also, the said post contains music that will play immediately as soon as the post is loaded. So, please turn on your speakers to enjoy the music that I composed. I look forward to your submitting a comment there because I am keen to read your feedback on my musical compositions and the rhyming poem there.
