A Poet's Demons And Angels

Poem By Shaun Cronick

I'm the clutter for your thoughts,
That clouded fog inside your mind.
The black block for every writer,
Your despair to which you're resigned.

I'm that bright spark of inspiration,
That fresh idea you want to convey.
The breakthrough you so welcome,
Your aspiration that's here to stay.

Comments about A Poet's Demons And Angels

Wonderful deployment of personification in this poem Shaun! Yes composing poems often involves an intense battle between these two polar opposites...perhaps it's this intense battle which produces great work...who knows? I certainly sense it in the poetry of, say, Dylan Thomas. Anyhow, it's an intensely satisfying ten from me!

In a moment it is gone.

Circling on and on....

A Birch In A Storm

A tall white Birch reared its stately form,
High in the path of the oncoming storm.

Tangled and knotted with each swing and sway.

Miss Goody Two Shoes.
No, not that one teen paedophile slicing slaughterhouse.
She's out of the country.
She's teamed up with The Lady Killer.


The shouts of children playing,
Bring back my happy youth.
To recall the time I was ten,
And lost a good front tooth.

This Magic Dream

I gift to you,
A soothing dream.
A dream to cherish,
A dream to gleam.
