Tuesday Tidbits #43



Welcome to the limited series, Tuesday Tidbits. A collection of quotes to provide inspiration, determination, and elevation. I hope you find something that brightens your day!

I think like most writers, I am, at times, trapped within my own thoughts. When everything you see, hear, feel or taste promotes a lyrically wandering train of worded speculation. Where ideas tangentially move so askew, that at the end you can no longer remember where the thought began. As revealing as that can sometimes be, it puts little ink to paper. Sometimes, I must stop thinking and write.


Virtual reality holds nothing over poetry. Poetic verse has been letting people see, hear, smell, touch, and feel places and things they have never seen since man first developed the written word.


Good to rhyme?

Just sometimes.

If over done?

Forgive the pun,

Limerick an obvious crime.


I always hope my readers get a kick out of my work. A hard kick right to the groin that leaves them breathless, tearing, and huddled on the floor overwrought with intense emotions. I want to be remembered the next day.


If you ever wondered about the power of music, try to recall the best poem you have ever read. Now play a hit song from when you were in your twenties and you will know every word and melody by heart. That my friend is the power of music!


When written well, a poem will be heard in the mind of the reader with the perfect tone and timbre, as if spoken by a master orator. From the whispers of a lullaby to the banging drums of war.


I once started a series and worried that I would run out of things to say. How little did I know myself?


Now get out there and write something!

    ‘When written well, a poem will be heard in the mind of the reader with the perfect tone and timbre, as if spoken by a master orator’ – I love this, but I think my auditory imagination is lacking. Thanks for reminding me to make better use of it.

  3. Brilliant and wonderful as always my friend. This statement is so, so true and precise: “If you ever wondered about the power of music, try to recall the best poem you have ever read. Now play a hit song from when you were in your twenties and you will know every word and melody by heart. That my friend is the power of music!” Great writing Brad and all the best,

    “I always hope my readers get a kick out of my work. A hard kick right to the groin that leaves them breathless, tearing, and huddled on the floor overwrought with intense emotions. I want to be remembered the next day.” That’s right πŸ™‚

    Nicely done Brad, I know what you meant at the beginning of this post. I have had a bit of that myself today. Very frustrating. You make some especially good points on your post today my friend. Sending you lots of love and hugs. Jonikens

    Every single one of these resonated we’d with me. The power of music, wanting to be remembered, thinking you’d run out of things to say…

    All so real. Bravo! πŸ‘β€
