POETRY SAVED MY LIFE

POETRY SAVED MY LIFE

This is Fleeky ONE.

She’s an Internet buddy who grabbed my hand and enthusiastically dragged me off to play with her.  Always a grand thing, I say!

Fleeky frequents the Wealthy Affiliates platform, which is a learning place for people who spend their time poking at computer keyboards, building blogs and customer bases and all that stuff, twisting their heads around to learn to deal with all the complexities of that effort.

(Most of us who hang at Wealthy Affiliates are learning how to get a handle on affiliate-marketing and are using the incredible array of knowledge presented there by expert online marketers and a very large world-wide tribe of wanna-be financial independents to further our own runs to Rainbow’s-End.)

I told Fleeky about my “Guest Poet Portal” and extended an invitation to her to share a poem on this here blog and her response was immediate.

BOOM!

A Fleeky-poem appeared.  The speed of her response was awesome.  It took my breath away.

Here’s the poem:


ONE POEM a day
Keeps the doctor away

Sound familiar?
Rewrite

Poetry saved my life

It is a wonderful world
Full of meaning and sense

The shorter
The best

Misstakes and typos
Are common errors
But…oh so funny!

I asked Fleeky what she thought would enhance the reader’s experience of her poem and her answer was:

Uh… add some video
With hip hop dance
😜

That sent me off to YouTube and got me really excited about the possibilities inherent in the hip-hop spoken poetry scene….but, that’s another story.

I pulled up this offering from Boom Bang, “Neon Hip-Hop Dance,” performed by the Wrecking Crew Orchestra.

Since it was published in 2012, it had over two million views.  Wo!

[So, there, Fleeky!  Hope you like it!]

Fleeky is working on a new site she calls “Inventive One” – an invitation for Creatives to play.

My own favorite, though, is her original site, Mlaure:  Creative Scribblings.  Click here for her story and for more poems.

It’s so cool….
