Guess I haven't seen any poems up, but that's all I can really write. Thought I'd give it a try and see if anyone was interested in reading my poetry. I'll probably continue to post poems on this topic. Comments and critiques are welcome.

The bowstring hums and the arrow's gone.
A solid thwack and the arrow hits.
Quivering in the center target.

Lay another arrow on the string.
Practice makes perfect so fire one more time
And again 'til you never get it wrong.


Hopefully someone enjoys it.

Mod note-as this appears to be original, I'm moving it to the parlor.
Before Aran can fulfill his dream of becoming a respected mage, he must pass his final exam and bond with an ice dragon. He sets out on his journey and gets along well enough in Arkene-until he meets a highly unusual person with an equally unusual creature.

It’s not just magi that can form magical bonds.

Guess no one seems to be interested in reading my poems, but here's another anyways.

A valiant duel, an epic fight
Which rages on throughout the night
Parry, cut, cross, and thrust
And both believe their cause is just.

But who is right and who is wrong?
For still the fight drags on and on
And still this question presses hard
Who will play the final card?

Then both drop back and fall apart
They both have a merry heart
And to the ground they let fall
The swords with which they fought it all

But what is this? No swords are these
No more than they are honeybees!
Nothing more than foam are they
Pool noodles taken to the fray.

Wonderful poems, both of them. (Sorry, one edit took up one post XD It's just I wasn't sure if that "on" was supposed to be like that or a "one")

I'd love to. I honestly didn't think anyone was going to read these. Maybe I will post some more after all.

Here's another one, just in case and because it makes me feel better.

Standing on the stage with only
A practised script between
Entertainers and audience
As thunder rolls outside.
A fragile wall of silence as
The words find their way
From the actor's mind to the ears
Of silent audience.

I've heard about the Ship of Fools
By a man I can't recall.
I saw the Delaware crossing
With Washington in the bow.
I watched the Mayflow'r landing
While the Speedwell turned around.
But never seen the Fellow Ship
As it sails back into port.

I've seen people walk all alone
And quickly fall by the side.
The ones who travel with their friends
Are the ones who make it through.
They climb aboard the Fellow Ship
And help it to set its sail
To come at last to God on high
The ultimate fellowship.

When your whole world is falling down
and you can't even make a sound
When skies have gone from blue to grey
and no one knows quite what to say
When fears abound and hope is small
lift your chin up and just stand tall.

Though storms will come to on earth
God sent his son through mortal birth
To reach a broken world in need
and all those weeping on their knees.
He knew the path would lead through pain
but through it, reach eternal gain.

So Jesus came and conqured all
and beat the shame of Adam's fall.
He was tried and tempted, tested
overcame and Satan, bested.
We'll never walk the path alone
for Jesus left his heav'nly throne.
