The loop poem. 

Loop Poem

 Loosely, a loop poem can pertain to any type of poem, there is no rules on length or rhyme or meter, only that for each stanza or verse, the last word of a line becomes the first word of the next line and the last word of that line becomes the first word of the following line, and the pattern repeats until the last line where the final word will be the first line of the poem. 
Example author unknown
Patterns are repeated

 repeated within loops

 loops that keep repeating

 repeating all these patterns.

My first attempt.



Adventure such an abstract concept,word

word of power, causes varying visions in the mind,

Mind working, forming patterns, emotions,

Emotions of happiness, or apprehension,

Apprehension, exhilaration, delight or

or disbelief, we all react differently to the concept Adventure. 
Anyone care to try this form?

The vagaries of health information

I hear the news,

 I read the papers

The rules to good health

give me the vapours

Today red wine is good for the heart

Yesterday it was a poisoned dart

Fruit is in and then it’s out

Smoothies are good then

 there is doubt

So I try and try 

to follow the rules

Though I begin to think they 

are written by fools

I give up wine and drink more water

Eat healthy food, pass junk more

 than I oughta

I eat less meat and eat more beans

You can hear me coming 

if you know what I mean

Butters in then it’s out

My poor sober brain begins to doubt

I eat healthy food, I hardly drink

I exercise to reduce

 my bingo wings

It’s all so pointless I feel sad

When healthy living should 

make me glad

I drink more wine, I reduce the water

Read the news want to shoot the reporter

I am on the treadmill what the hell 

Just might just  have a Donut ,as well

I skip the news and censor the paper

I use common sense, maybe a ball breaker

I weigh myself and exercise 

A slim svelte body the ultimate prize

I drink more wine, I dance and sing

Join an exercise class for lots of ping

I weigh myself, I give it up

Throw the scales in the garbage truck.

OAdventure

Adventure to one is purgatory to the next,
An unusual and exciting or daring experience,
Kick starts the hormones, prestiges giddyness,

Thats what they would have us believe,

Testing the boundaries,kicking the traces,

Striving to have fun, finding four aces,

Be it the adrenaline rush, or the wonder inspired,

Its out of the comfort zone, effort required,

Adventure will be high on our lists

Even where anxieties sneakily persist.
Adventure to one, is purgatory to the next,

It depends on ones psyche, whether it feels like a hex,
I read of adventures enacted by some,

Mountain climbing, and round the world sailing leave me numb,

Free styling across high and barren cliffs, bungee jumping over an abyss, 

I freak at the thought, at the mind blowing effort,

My soft psyche thinks unpleasant,

Testing the body to the limits, a half inch from death,

The thought makes me catch my breath,

For the high octane adventurers I am full of awe, 

My idea of adventure would stick in their craw.
Adventure to one, is commonplace to the next,

It depends on ones psyche if it is breath of life, or hex,

Adventure is anything we want to be

Even a gentle outing down to the sea. 

Room with a view

The room with the view
Has a problem or two
Its up five flights of stairs
There aren’t any chairs
When you get to the top
You feel that you’ll drop
You are so red in the face
Breathless with the pace
You have to lie down
Now comes a frown
Cause the room with the view
Its only a loo!

Golf

​Golf a new sport to try

Learn some new skills to satisfy

Learn to hit  a ball with a club

How difficult can it be, unless I hit the scrub

Stand relaxed and swing from the hips

Practice the move, heck have to be a contortionist 

Ready to try, they said go to tee

 Not the drink I expected, but a plastic dinkie

Now I am worried, is golf really kinky

Is this T motorised and kind of pinky?
I take up my stance and swing at the ball

Manage to hit it no trouble at all

Just heard a comment that’s got up my nose

I know I am no vision in these odd clothes

But to mention my flanks is beyond the pale

They tried to change it to shanks, hah a likely tale

Some talk of an iron

Is it forefits to frighten?

If they bring out their smalls 

They can keep their balls
Ah, now somebody just got a birdy

Thats really too much

Killing helpless creatures, that’s so out of touch

I think all this perversion

Is too much for me, is there another version

Maybe I just need a strong cup of tea.

With apologies to golfers my try at highlighting some of the golf venacular! 

Healthy kick

​Calm sea

Cloudy sky

Walking free

Would rather fly

Long hike

With beautiful views

Feet don’t like

Blisters, bad news

Healthy kick

Doing my bit

Unfortunately mthink I need a stick

Shouldn’t have stopped, must admit

 Now Stiff muscles

Hobbling now,Oh the pain

No more hustles 

Where’s the gain

Blue sky 

Calm sea

Tomorrow will a deckchair

That’s for me.
