Love it man. Poet as creator theme here (and even if we don't create the things, we give them names and assign meaning to them). This is very well written, and i love the last line. In my estimation poets are very mighty creatures (we're also a mess of insecurities). I guess i can only speak for myself.
AAHHHHHHHHHHH! I LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT! I AM REBORN UNTO THYSELF... NO MORE DO I HAVE TO READ POETRY THAT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE!>!>! YES! Okay... I'm happy... love it... don't change it... great haiku.. those lines are like the lines on line paper, right!?!?! AWESOMENESS (AND WOWNESS)!
well i don't read much haiku, but i think you;ve done a good job on this nonetheless. i do like how you fit religion in there to. the power that emits from your words is strong enough to make an impact. i must say though, this is not how i would descirbe a poet (and there are so many ways). It sort of scares me because it's like a rule-the-world kind of thing. Iguess i'd have taken a different approach in writing a haiku about a poet. i just had to say that- haikus are so short that they should be FLAWLESS and should have as much to say as a prose poem would. the ending and the tone didn't quite sit right with me for what it was, but i still think it's cool to try something new. thumbs up .
What's interesting is that when I read that I didn't think of God but of man instead (Adam in Eden to be specific.) Adam was given power to name the animals, he had complete freedom to do what he wanted when he wanted (with that tiny restriction over the apple.) But Adam couldn't reign over Eden for long, and that's what I got from it. A poet has power over the words for a short time, eventually they reclaim power over him. Good poem. As you can see it sent me off into a long winded train of thought. Good write.
Very interesting, given that over half of the poetry written these days seems to be about less than pleasant topics. Good to know a poet who creates eden in his verse. It is all within our power, our choice I suppose, Dave
