Lost In Prague 2000

Internet cafes
Art deco displays
Castles from past days

St. Charles bridge
Lanterns lit
Boats pass below
Where craftsmen sit

Puppet theater
Absinthe

Alone with my friend
Freedom
Again-

.....it's a pity you found your way home.... Jazz...at least someone is reading, and trying to understand your efforts.....even if it is little ol' me......keep them coming...at least around bedtime....zzzzz..

I'm an ordinary man from Liverpool Jazz........not trying to be anyone special....or out to upset anyone....like writing poems that maybe someone can relate to..........maybe our styles clash....but I do recognise that you have a talent in your style of poetry...........but mine is from the heart.......I don't really want to offend you......."hands across the water"........Liverpool to New York.........with love....

Thanks Frank. There's a lot of bad poetry with emotion. Too many cliches and pronouns, telling instead of showing.. It's about the delivery.. But you get a pass for being from Liverpool.. Imagination & emotions is the formula. How can I say something emotional without resorting to those writing "traps".. For me this enjoyable, helps me to express myself.. Hope some of this makes sense..
