world peace round up year 6, 2012--->2018,




Homonyms is one of the poetry forms not many do, but could be fun to try it, here is a sample from Firefox Poetry at Promising Poets Parking Lot, enjoy!

Can you pass the can?
May I see you in May?
Why don’t we toast with some toast
and coast along the coast?
A light is light
like a paper kite,
if it shines too bright,
it might bite;
A lean cat could lean on a skunk
and get smelly like one who’s drunk.
A bowl cannot bowl
but a roll might just roll
without wisdom of an owl
or charm of a doll.

Homonyms are words that sound
and look alike yet profound!
If you say them real fast,
They are a true blast!
let words fall like rain,
let wisdom shine on your pain….

The timid kingfisher by s.s.e.b.
kingfisher, kingfisher
resting on the rooftop
I hear you are a well-wisher
have you any fish? 
none to give, none to give
but I have something more
a little bird you could forgive
for flying from your shore!
An abnominal for Jón “Jónsi” Þór Birgisson

A cento is a poem made up entirely of lines from other poems. In this case they are all taken from Shakespeare’s sonnets (the number of each is shown in brackets).
The worst was this, my love was my decay, (80)
Being your slave what should I do but tend (57)
As with your shadow I with these did play, (98)
The roses fearfully on thorns did stand; (99)
The perfect ceremony of love’s rite, (23)
That she that makes me sin awards me pain, (141)
Ruin hath taught me thus to ruminate, (64)
They that have power to hurt, and will do none; (94)
O cunning Love! with tears thou keep me blind, (148)
Who will believe my verse in time to come? (17)
For that same groan doth put this in my mind, (50)
Although I swear it to myself alone; (131)
A dateless lively heat, still to endure, (153)
Who taught thee how to make me love thee more? (150)
Or not. I’m not really sure. (“Old man at the South Pole” is a star.)
i was
crossing the river
a few years ago.
now i have a home
and on the banks
i can sit
looking up
at the old man
of the south pole
who shines red
in the evening
like the new year.
