Poetry is Necessary

15 Nov

Bongo checking out a parked bikeI headed to my trails and found a bike parked there. This doesn’t happen very often.

Most of the bikes that come to my trails go on my trails.

But this bike is different – in more ways than one.

I see lots of people put stickers on their cars, but I don’t usually see them on bikes.

Actually, I don’t think I’ve ever seen one on a bike on my trails before.

But this bike must be special.

It’s a poetry bike.

"Poetry is Necessary" sticker on bike

This bike says poetry is necessary.

Does that mean I have to write poetry?

Is it as necessary as eating, or sleeping, or going on walks on my trails?

Okay, I guess I’ll write a poem.

.

Bikes that write poetry

Are found to be rare

But a dog that writes poems

Can be worse than a bear

.

Wait a minute! What happened there?

Those words just came out. They’re not what I wanted to say.

That poetry writing took right over and started writing its own words.

Maybe I shouldn’t be writing poetry.

But I can’t stop yet. I’ve got to get that bear first.

 .

I chased a bear

He’s no longer there

He ran over the hill

And I’m not sure to where

.

Take that you mean old bear.

And don’t come back either.

      Ku, I was hoping you’d stop by today. I thought of you when I was writing these poems.

    Oh Bongodog, you are a scream!
    But I know just what you mean
    Once the words begin to flow
    They will never let you go!!!

    Out on trail, you see a bike,
    Maybe rider’s on a hike
    Left his bike, where you could see
    That he was a man of poetry

    lots of hugs and kisses too.
    sent with loves from me to you xxxxxx

    You are a natural born poet, Bongo! 🙂 Amazing what a little sticker can do! 🙂

      Thanks Marina. Maybe next time I’ll find a sticker that says to eat fish.

    Why ride a bike
    when you can take a hike
    If you see a bear
    get outta there!

    That poetry bike really inspired you, B. That poetry flowed right out! I hope there’s not really a bear!

    Love and licks,

      Cupcake, there’s no bear. I chased him away. Actually, I’ve never seen a bear on my trails. There are some in the area but people and dogs don’t see them very often.

    OMG, Bongo, suppression is not healthy! Don’t repress the Poet Laureate in yourself!

      Kolytyi, I guess I just have to learn how to control that Poet Laureate so I only say good things about myself.

        “Poetic irony means presenting two contrasting situations or cases in a poetic way , often involving a subtle sense of humour by saying things you do not mean.”
