Joined 7 years ago from (Texas !) Boldly Writing Poems Where No Man Has Gone Before.... Last activity 7 weeks ago.




Also follow me on:


Welcome to my World of "Manly" Poetry in Poetry Art Form. Hope you come to enjoy this Art Form...as much as I have enjoyed writing it!


Manly Poetry Man's "Ever-Present" Poetic-"able" Declaration to you:


Poems: Get a bad rap...usually considered flowery, soft, artsy, etc. Maybe...some of that is true. But...put in the right context...Poems can get a point across with underlying stealth and quiet intelligence. Perhaps... even better than the average writings we see daily. This is Manly Poetry Man's Quest. To Boldly Go Where No Poetry Man Has Gone Before and...Boldy Write Some New Poems...!?! Sometimes Poems need to have their energy harnessed and then put on display. 

Being able to write down Rhymes has always been something I just did...like some folks scribble on paper. Poetry is a natural extension of that. As I mentioned in the above...I feel like most people have the notion that Poetry is all flowery, soft, artsy,etc. Hence...Mr. Manly Poetry Man has arrived to show the world that: "Words come at you Everyday; Poems are just a little more organized in what they have to say...and can be done in a Manly Way" ! 

In humblest regards then...May I present to you... "Manly Poetry".
