Official Hub Poet

People often ask me where is the best place to start to read more of any author here?

I always recommend going to their main profile page, this way you can see all their articles and those they have chosen to showcase.

Drax Profile page

This was my very first Hub written 08/15/06 and in struggling for a name I thought go for it, hence Official Hub Poet :-)


Sigmund Freud said;

"..everywhere I go a poet has been there before me.."

An Editor reviewing my stuff recently said to me that all the poems I have here are blood and guts and I thought no... but then looking at this current list, maybe. There is the odd nice soft fluffy poem here also.



Hub Poet's Job description:

to contribute poems written about one or more of the following;-

a. the Hub & its environs
b. a relatively esoteric topic
c. political comment
d. love or something like it
e. something completely different :-)

Drax on Assignment

I'm the 3rd from the left or the 2nd from the left if you are standing behind us, you could even say I was in the middle if you just looked at us from the side....if you're looking at us from satellite  then I'm the one with the glove..

delightful delicious Diabetes Diet

butterfly chicken breasts in a bikini

flying around the skillet

I spear them with toothpicks

weighed down with heavy bouillon

the davy jones locker for you lot

I tossed them in the water

boiling barbados water shimmering simmering

I poked them with a tender fork

and ate the toothpicks carefully

delightful delicious Diabetes Diet

Brainiac has this recipe for Chicken Breasts with Carrot and Zucchini Stuffing, it was the mention of the butterfly that did it.. just launched me on a flight of fancy... this sounds seriously tasty, no not the poem the chicken.

Background to this poem

On Goga's site in his profile he says;

Web-programmer. I am a really cool web-programmer. So, i has expireience in development of internet-trading systems with strong requirements for speed and reability. If you want to make a very stiong site - please mail me.

really cool web-programmer

I am a really cool web-programmer

I am a really cool web-programmer

i has been hear the their and eferywhere

if ur sight needs reability

then me i will reabilly it four yu

i like bee make stiong site

I am a really cool web-programmer

Background to this poem

Chyna Doll is young & pregnant

She said;

..but the worse of it is when the baby is moving around inside and 'kicks' really hard which causes me to groan! :s Sometimes I wish this baby was out of me now!...

Baby to Chyna Doll

being a baby under construction is hard

this space it getting a little small

I want to escape to see the light and breath the air

meanwhile I'd like to hear some Rachmaninov

or momma, maybe Mozart too

I heard on the radio, though indistinct

classical music calms impatient babies mothers as well

I could float here safe and sound

relax and count the days

you and I could chill an hour

let me know

I might play piano

not football

ps

see you soon

..

..

the hub poet gets connected

once upon a time i was a hub poet

i was really connected

Amazon were a big help to me

providing glorious inspiration...

well no not really

more like ad cash for the poor poet

picking probably the perfect pseudomyn

ratings rising pespiring pespiring

then sideswiped usb'd ko'd

as D-Link Netgear Iogear showed up

led by the infamous Putt Putt

anybody else but Putt Putt

the final insult

who wants to be a hub clown

that'll only bring a frown

hey folks this network's down

Hi there, I do not think I made it into your qualification of poetry. I thought that instead I would comment on the time it takes for one to see and notice what is really beauty and what we truly behold just because we are told that it is beautiful. What do you think? My poem: Sought After

Sought After

Tries at fixing what was never broken.

Trying so hard that it affixes itself into a method.

Methodically and on instint,

I become what you tore apart.

Just to make it all up in your world,

in pieces of your picture perfect -the meaning.

To have all of it become to you so worthy of praise and attention,

I blend in with your angels and stand out inapt.

It cannot always be so becommingly beautiiful

when one stands out as applied intent in mishaps gone unnoticed.

There's worlds that I can only attain with my focus

at attention.

Wolds so far away from it all that enraptures your very mind.

The lust

The hunger

The thirst

The sight of you merging into I...everso breathless,

even when I do not breathe you in.

The delight in your eyes before you exhale a pleasure,

The light it fades in order to focus your vision...silence.

Measures of inaptitude held up for comparrison of lesser values you hold high.

Highs that level a stood for moment in time,

as tries.

Only tries in your world that notices only

the time it takes to recreate another time gone by.

Seek to find

when the time sees you

in its' demise.

Then, time flies by....

miahbell this is great - it is your poetry, no-one can really define what is and what is not poetry since it is such an individual thing, you should publish this on your hub pages....

keep writing poetry and reading poetry since this is the only way to develop and grow...

ciao drax...

Of course you know Sigmund Freud snorted enough Cocaine to kill a horse and spent his later life pining over another man instead of his wife. Why anyone would lie down on a couch and let a man like that know their deepest secrets is beyond me. A real shrink told me one time that I was depressed. I told her that I was not depressed and so she said that I was in denial also and I said, "But I've never been to Egypt". I got rid of more Quacks that way. And have you ever heard of a little thing called a rhyme scheme? You should try it some time and check out my only entry so far. Bloody Mornin' Woman under Songs and Poems.

Rosco is right Drax. A Rhymne and time is not a crime.

I love the witch photo, though, and your sense of humour is grand. Even Rap music has rhythmn and rhymne. How hard can it be if eminem can wrap? Name yourself after a candy bar, break out a harp and modernize Yeats, no translate Yeats for the Masses. Throw in some Irish and set the world on a turf fire. You are the MAX, Drax. Keep it reel with the trout of wisdom. Cheers.

      I'm a big poetry fan. We'll we see a poem a day?

      I nominate you as official hubpages poet. Anyone second it?

      Drax 10 years ago from NYC.... Author

      Hey Shopper,

      thanks for the vote of confidence andyes a poem a day or 5 poems a week.


      suggestion 10 years ago

      Love your poems, but there a little hard to find. You might want to make each poem a new Hub and then group them together.

      Drax 10 years ago from NYC.... Author

      thanks for that, suggestion :-) I was wondering what to do as it expands since navigating gets to be a pain, must try this.. thanks much

      It is difficult to find your poem of the day and I really enjoy them. On the edit page of your hubs you can create a group. It's at the top of the page where the tabs say, "Settings, Summary Text, Group, Help". Click on the "Group" tab and you can create a poetry group that links them all together. Then on your hubs your readers can either use the drop down box to the right of your title or the "next" or "previous" links at the bottom of the hub. P.S. I really liked your ideas about how schools/classrooms could use HubPages!

      Robin thanks very much for this, I never 'noticed' that ! Trying to balance writing poetry with writing Hubs and so far hubs are winning. Thanks for the vote of confidence on the hubs for schools, I think they would be a brilliant tool.

      congrats on your one year hub pages anniversary. if I wrote anymore, I would write a time machine and crawl in it and do most of the past year again - frozen sparrow love during the time of the revolution. it was really lovely. no. better than that. parts of it were perfect.
