Poetry: Dreaming Under Foam (A Gymnastics Poem) + I’m a Famous Anonymous Poet???

Someone tried to steal my poem! And I'm a famous anonymous poet! I promise this isn't becoming a poetry blog. This is a poem I wasn't planning on posting here because it's not really a good fit for a sci-fi/fantasy book blog. But these discoveries were too strange not to share. When I first shared this poem on the internet in 2013, it spread around quite a bit among gymnasts. I knew it would...
 
Poetry: Supernatural Creature Poems (2)

Poetry: Supernatural Creature Poems (2)

I know I just posted a poem last week, but I'm back with more! Last year, in October, I posted some poems about supernatural creatures. Each was four lines, and the first word of each line also formed a sentence that related to the creature. They were fun and a bit of a challenge, so I decided to write some more this year! And I decided to again stick with some common, well-known monsters and...
 
Poetry: Alien Abduction

Poetry: Alien Abduction

I wrote this poem in 2019 for a little competition, but then the competition never ended up happening, so I figured I'd just share it here! The rules were that the entry had to be under a certain number of words, had to be about alien abduction, and it had to include at least two words from a specific list. I was particularly inspired by one of the words, and this is what I came up...

Poetry: Supernatural Creature Poems

I came up with this idea for some short supernatural creature poems some time ago, and I thought October would be the perfect time to finally write and share them! Not that I need it to be October to talk about supernatural creatures, but still :-P It should be pretty obvious which supernatural each poem is about, but I'll put the answers at the end in case you all want to have some fun...
 
Poetry: The Misunderstood Merman

Poetry: The Misunderstood Merman

A couple months ago, I had mermen on the brain, so I ended up writing a poem about one! It was partly inspired by something I came across on the internet in which someone suggested maybe mermaids didn't mean to drown people (it turns out there is in fact a poem written by Yeats about this very thing). It was also partly inspired by numerous pieces of merman art I saw in which the mermen looked...

Poetry: A Collection of Some Short but [Bitter]Sweet Poems

So. I rarely share my poetry because it's always been a very personal thing for me, something I write for myself and myself only (unless I'm specifically writing it for a contest or a gift or something). But April is National Poetry Month! And I have decided to share a few of my shorter poems! These are all years old, nothing recent. Some of these weren't written with anyone or anything in...
