Love Is A Google Thing
« on: July 08, 2006, 01:08:47 PM »
I was mucking about on http://www.googlism.com/  one day and made a poem out of the search finds.


Love Is A Google Thing

love is love
love is hard to find
love is not for sissies
love is energy
love is life

love, an action
love, a phwoarrr letter word
love, a many splendoured thing

love is conditional
love is rotten to the core
love is colder than death
love is the devil

love is far worse than I expected

Amen to that fellow poet.

Great poem, great description, even if i'm not into the whole repetition of the first word kinda thing :o
*pop* That was my head. It just got blown.

I liked this but Im concerned about the Love repetition, I got a bit tired of using that word as I read it through.   The other words though were very descriptive.  Overall it was good.

Yes, I liked the poem also.  I like the idea of "found poetry" or just picking out of reality elements which seem significant.  I think that is a good part of what poetry or art is.  In a way I agree with Lin about the repetition of "love," and it might work better if the statements about love were somewhat less random.  I do particularly like the last line which gives the whole poem just the right ironic twist.  I would hang on to this one. Who knows what you might what to do with it in the future.  Looking forward to your next posting.

Happy writing,
Caliban

Thank you, all.  Yes, I agree, this could benefit with some more playing about with, so it's definitely worth hanging on to.  :)

A suggestion may be to shorten it. For instance the first line could read:

Love is love and hard to find,

You could double up more lines to avoid the 'love' word coming up as often. I liked it apart from that and 'love' the last line!
