University Of Life

University Of Life prose poem

Photo by foshie


You’re a scholar, I’m a scholar, and everyone’s a scholar!
Similar uniform, “Different coloured tie around the collar”
Giant classroom, lessons and tests, “We’re always learning”
So many tutorials we attend, “It can be very concerning?”

People are busy and intent on doing something, far as I see
Dragging my mind here and there, hear “Hey, believe in me!”
At times I trek round in circles, feel I’m going nowhere at all
Have to stop here and there for a moment, a body overhaul

More new pages written in a book of life, “So I’ve just heard”
Another one in a library, “I wonder if this one will be absurd.”
My heartbeat varies as each Author says, “So, it is written…”
Points of view come to mind, “Hmm, that’s a contradiction!”

Trying to determine facts from the facades which do appear
Looking about to perceive somehow, “What I’m doing here?”
Feel slightly comforted though as I gather all new knowledge
Is the ‘University of Life’ worth attending? “Yes, I’d encourage!”

I would personally like to welcome you to Rhyme Island and hope you enjoy your stay as you read my poems. ‘Rhyme Island’ is a fictional place of my own invention where I escape to in mind to pen my thoughts. It is a place where many people now visit from around the globe as ‘fans and followers’ of Rhyme Island. I am very thankful to the tools of virtual travel via the internet and the powers of social media. Using these methods has provided what I call ‘Tourism of Poetry’. People can visit Rhyme Island and I can reach far-away places at little or no cost to enjoy compositions. I’m an individual character, presently alive and well, who has been given a ‘god given’ DNA of creativity to write. Developed through no ending so far of living experiences the topics and stories constantly unfold. I put my craft to situations that call for reason or purpose hopefully in memorable cadences. My poetry can wrench the language with remarkable throw away insights in between straightforward observations and tales. In the narrative I try and include entertaining digression for feelings, thoughts and emotions to arise within the reader. Sometimes elaborate or over-fussy references may seem out of place but are written through my own vision and way of thinking.I sincerely hope you enjoy visiting Rhyme Island and it helps you in making life what you want it to be. “I hope you enjoy some happy reading please, with lots of smiles!”
