I delved into poetry some years ago and enjoyed it. Recently having begun writing, and starting a fiction novel, I feel the urge to try poetry again.
This is much influenced by my book.
the words they dance
sometimes a foxtrot
sometimes a waltz
and attempt a ballet on occasion
the river flows
the moon illuminates
the tree shades each
creates ashes from the remains
if it is allowed
manages the sun and the stars
in our heavens
it breathes life
and raises from the dead
and tames the wicked sun
into a dream
into a song
by which we all

I play in a gospel bluegrass band and have done a couple cd's with them. It's great fun making music, making the whole sound better than the individual. The absolute best compliment I have had is "you sure make the band sound good." If anyway possible learn to work on your own banjo. There are lots of informative books to enable anyone to do that. It isn't rocket science.
