Poetry Schmoetry And Chapter 6 of "Skeleton Key" Blogvel

Hello Monday!

First order of business we have today: the Round Robin Blogvel (blog novel) Skeleton Key Chapter 6 by the infamous Jenny Phresh of The Party Pony is up! If you want to follow the progress of this blogvel making its rounds among notable bloggers (who were crazy enough to sign up, and amazing enough to make it work), go to the Table of Contents to read the previous chapters.

Up next is the Poetry Schmoetry Blogfest hosted by the beautiful Shelly Brown of Writing with Shelly. All I'm supposed to do is post a poem of my own making, though Shelly is flexible as to what constitutes a poem (no poem snubbing here!). So if your inner poet is dying to come out, join the fun! There are also fabulous prizes and whatnot.

Here is my offering for the blogfest. Disclaimer: I'm not a poet. But I try anyway. ;)

Hello is not enough.
A heart unwoven,
its stitches torn asunder.
Tiny daggers driven into its core.
Unheard weeping,
Quiet sighing,
secrets folding in,
tucked out of sight.

Hello is not enough.

By Kr. B.

Angie Cothran said...

Lovely and haunting. I've felt exactly like this before. Perfectly said.

Jen said...

You are totally a poet, don't write yourself off so quickly, I loved it!

Mindy McGinnis said...

Pretty good, lady! Me, not so much with the poetry.

Anita Grace Howard said...

I think you ARE a poet. Your words are just beautiful, and they flow so naturally. Great job, Cherie! :)

T.S. Welti said...

Is it horrible that I followed that link to the blogfest, read the whole (long) post, typed my name and web address in the form, and said, "Nah." I'm so bad at poetry. You are much better than I, dear Cherie. As Anita said, you ARE a poet. :D

The Golden Eagle said...

I think you're a poet, too. :)

Amy said...

Loved your poem, it's beautiful. :)

Simon Kewin said...

That's powerful poetry - very effective. Putting the "hell" into "hello" ...

cherie said...

Thank you so much for your support and super nice comments, friends! You have no idea how much they mean to me. Let's just say you guys have made my day today. :)

THANK YOU. xoxoxo

Caitlin Vincent said...

I suppose there's no point in tagging you in my meme since you've already seen it ;) BUT, I do want to say that your poem is beautiful and powerful. And I hope you end up using some of your poetry in your books.

Kim said...

I agree with the other comments - you are most definitely a poet! The language you used was evocative and beautiful... nicely done :)

Dawn M. Hamsher said...

I like the phrase "secrets tucking in". That is a wonderful image and heart-wrenching too.

The poem is so sad. I want to hug the one in the poem.

Scott Niven said...

For someone who claims not to be a poet, you've got a talent for making just a few words suggest an entire story. Well done!

Kimberly Krey said...

Okay, so I'm pretty sure you're a poet at heart; that was beautiful!

Summer Ross said...

The idea inside this poem of not enough is really powerful. Thank you for sharing.


Brianna said...

The poem made me feel sad and any poem that makes the reader feel is good right?

I really like the picture accompanying the poem!

M Pax said...

Great poem. Loved the secrets folding in line.

Randy Lindsay said...

I think that this is a poem that you can read many times and get something new out of it each one. Good job.

Krispy said...

My favorite line is "secrets folding in." This is a short poem with punch. Thanks for sharing.

rivercat said...

Crying With A Sense Of Human

That is a powerful poem! I love how you and others are saying they aren't poets and you are creating magnificent poetry! Well done!

julie fedderson said...

You are totally a poet. You just put so much emptiness and longing into just a few short words. Beautiful.

Casey Morris said...

Great imagery. Really moving.

Kayeleen Hamblin said...

Loved the emotion of this. So empty and lonely to me. Very nice, Cherie.

So powerful! I love the echo of the first line at the end again. Thanks for sharing it! I'm sorry I didn't get to your blog last week during Shelly's blog fest - I had a crazy week. But I'm go glad I got here now!
