The Word of Undiscovered Poets: Martin Kloess

Updated on June 13, 2013

Anyone who respects poetry, has tried to write using poetic form. While a lot of poets tend to use free form, as it allows for more creativity, there are some poets who stay true to certain forms of poetry. Whether it be Sonnets, Haiku, Limericks, or a host of other styles of poetry forms, poets who favor these styles tend to use them over and over again. The gentleman I would like you to discover today, has mastered the art of using several forms of poetry, and his archive of poetry will teach you to truly appreciate poetic form.

Martin Kloess

Born in Frieberg, Germany and now a resident of San Francisco California, Martin Kloess is a well accomplished man. He is a 33rd degree mason for his work with public schools, Toys for Tots, and masonic homes. He has published an eBook titled Well That Was That, which is a collection of funny Limericks all about relationships, and recently he has invented a new poetic form he calls Martin Verse.

Despite all these accomplishments Martin Kloess has an even more admirable quality. Martin has a disability which is slowly taking away his ability to use his body. This disability has diminished his ability to walk, talk, and think. He is unable to enjoy the life which he has created for himself, but Martin continues to write poetry through all the adversity. Poetry in an integral part of Martin the man, and to know this man's poetry is to know true greatness.

Martin Kloess started writing poetry for the same reason a lot of noble poets started writing, to meet girls in high school. He must have had a talent for poetry then, because he met his first wife Arlene when he was 16. Sadly Arlene died on August 11, 2003, but Martin still honors her memory by capitalizing the word Joy in his poetry, which was her middle name.

Even after Arlene passed away, Martin continued to pursue life with a passion. He met his second wife Amor, who he is still happily married to today, and says they had two years of paradise together before his disability took over his body. Amor is a devoted wife who is taking care of Martin in his time of need.

I feel honored to have discovered such an incredible man like Martin Kloess, and if you would like to discover this amazing poets work you can find him at the links below:

      Martin it was a pleasure getting to know your world better. I started these articles in an attempt to share the works of other poets with the world, and I discovered so much about each and every person I have written about. It puts a lot of things in perspective for me, and I hope who ever reads the series feels the same way.

      Thank you PHILLYDREAMER for this profile of Hub Pages poet Mhatter99. That he is writing witty, wonderful and weird poems while experiencing this devastating illness is an inspiration. Your insightful bio is much appreciated. I've been enjoying Mhatter's writing and poetry, and I am saddened now to learn what he has to deal with. I am in awe that he remains lighthearted and so wonderfully creative. Regards, snakeslane
