i have always been fascinated with poetry. i do not remember when exactly this fascination began, but i have been a voracious reader since i learned how to read from watching sesame street. what i am sure of is that my fascination for poetry blossomed in full during my high school years. i began writing verses, and i even took up an elective subject in creative writing, and i was simply overwhelmed by the beauty, the music, and the imagery of the craft.

in college, i promised myself that i would master the English language, and i have vastly improved my vocabulary and grammatical expertise since then. i learned what poetic license really meant, and this through harsh reality and eperience. i still make a lot of mistakes, and my poetry leaves a lot to be desired. but someday, my hope is that i can publish a collection of verses.

most of my inspiration in writing these verses have been the naive emotions of unrequited love. i have tried to broaden my repertoire of topics since then, but i find i can only write of things i feel very strongly about. i would appreciate your comments and suggestions that can help me become better. and if you like what you read, please let me know too. compliments are still the best fuel to the fires of our craft.

  1. I don’t think you need to worry about the caliber of your poetry, guerdon. You have a unique style; your poems are thought-provoking, show a keen mind and wit.

    In your comments above you state that your inspiration comes from the ‘naive’ emotions of unrequited love. If you don’t mind me saying so, I think unrequited love would inspire *raw* emotions, of the *deep longing and frustration* kind. ๐Ÿ™‚ ‘Naive’ ideation of romantic love, yes. So maybe you chose ‘naive’ for want of a better word?

    It’s good to remember that good poetry does not come from the mundane qualities of life, but from the passion that lives within us.

    You write some amazing stuff, kiddo. Have no doubt about that. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. thanks koreanmine, janetleigh. may we of the fellowship of the quill never lose the desire to let our fingers dance the dance of verses. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. To my dear guerdon, in the chance you still stop by your poetry lair from time to time, I miss you my friend ๐Ÿ˜ฆ When are you coming back? Are you writing elsewhere? On an archaeological dig? Or tripping the light fantastic while independently wealthy? I miss you my friend. Come back.. come back.. come back to me..
