Rhyme and reason

When waking life is webbed with dream,
and what is real don’t matter,
and conversations only seem
unnecessary chatter,

a poet’s heart’s engendering
a majesty of wonders
and thinks upon its rendering
in brightnesses and thunders.

Its rhythm, rhyme, and metering
are things that are concerning,
but when its meaning’s teetering-
that’s when we think of burning.

So take an oath, a poet’s toast
to write your best of pages-
like lost Lenore and Raven’s ghost,
your story for the ages.

Lee Dunn View All

Lee Dunn has been writing since the age of 18, but found that work got in the way for the ensuing 48 years. In his home town of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, he reveled in his independence at an early age, and spent as much time as he could exploring the city’s Arts scene. He was introduced to poetry and prose by the works of two literary giants, namely J.R.R. Tolkien and J.W. Lennon and thence fell in love with the written word. His work includes poetry, short fiction, and personal essays, and ranges in theme from the surreal to the horrific, nostalgic, and themes on the human condition. He has been published on, The Dark Poets Club, Journal of Undiscovered Poets, Crepe & Penn Literary magazine, and the Shelburne Free Press.
