Showcase your talents and find collaborators!

Most of my work is tightly metered and I think would lend itself well to song lyrics by simply adding a chorus or bridge. I've written in triplets, quatrains, quintains and sextets and most rhyme.

To view some of my work, go to http://www.gotpoetry.com/Poems/l_op=Showpoet/poet=Huberjack.html

If you are a songwriter, let me know if you are interested in collaborating.

Your poem 'The Sunflower's Day' reminds me of a lyric that would appear in a song by the group 'Yes"-
-That was the first concert I ever saw- in Detroit I believe- Probably the year 1976???


'The Sunflower's Day'

They
stand at
attention,
facing the east
early in the day,
leaving morning behind
as the southern sun soars high,
yellow masks pursuing closely,
the platoon following their orders
with natural precision and guidance.

Midday falls away and the solar flight
continues westward, while synchronized
faces track the sun's path 'til dusk,
when shadows dim their purpose .
By daylight's sullen end,
the sun no longer
warrants blossoms'
attention
and blooms
rest.

I love Yes- I saw them in concert with Alan Parsons Project in the 90's in Seattle, but have long been a fan of theirs.

Hi Jack are you also on gotpoetry?
Ah, yes, I have read some of your work as well. I believe you write mostly love poetry, don't you? Those that I have seen were very pleasant to read.

Slamming is a numbers game... get into enough of them and you're sure to win some. I do admit to having won my share.

Hi Jack-

I just noticed your offer to collaborate - didn't see it before-

-Yes I am interested in collaborating- what set of lyrics did you have in mind?
If you take a look at my poetry, you'll find most are metered tightly, which means that some could make good lyrics if I added refrains. Take a gander at some of them and see if any spark your interest.

obviously a good poem....stand at attention seems to put a spin of irony on nature. to have military style discipline in nature. although plantlife is infinitely more intelligent than any killing machine (blood, brains, evil trauma, real not good) that seems mocking of mankind in that plants give life, food, oxygen, sacred things and humans still murder when they could at least use non-lethal weaponry to protect their tribe. how sad. at least the plants have happy faces worshipping the sun in peaceful harmony as opposed to being dragged into death and horror at some battle.
