The Poetry Bar



 Some things make you laugh
Maybe fond remembrances
Or being tickled


Why do we have dogs?
I think because they love us
Even when we don’t


I never met you
I read your poetry
And that is enough


Why do you fear us?
We make everything we want
Came to show you how


A gentle whisper
A messenger from heaven
Gives more than I asked

My name is Von Smith, I have written nearly 4,000 haiku this year.  My website is:   Above the Noise.  I also write other forms of poetry, short stories, and have two work-in-progress novels.  My love is  my wife; my view is prosaic; I like to read and to binge (the gerund of binge could be binging, but that is too close to Bing ing😉 quality series, and watching engaging movies.

If you would like to have your work published in The Poetry Bar send your poem, a few words about yourself and the link to your blog to the e-mail
