Poetry Like Bob Ross
Poem for Day 190 – 20150709
To write poetry like Bob Ross,
layering on the wet-on-wet words.
Joy of Poetry is our goal,
replete with happy trees and peaks.
Bridges, flowers, barns, and fences,
cabins that never have chimneys,
my words will speak with calming voice
as we apply our layered lyrics.
Relax, make love to the words,
with a little touch, little nudge.
beating the devil out of it,
making the world as joyous as you can.
Pen the almighty mountains,
in spilled ink add a shorter friend.
Behind stanzas of choppy seas,
merry little clouds are codified.
This is your world, you are creator,
with the freedom of your words,
bringing good thoughts with your heart,
with the freedom of cheerful phrases.
So long from all of us here,
wishing you happy poetry,
make the world as cheery as you can,
everyday is a good day with poetry.
