Character

A poet's pen has piercing Is
to penetrate the best disguise
and sometimes it's abuzz with Bs
that pollinate the fruitful trees,
judicious use of yearning Ys
can help explain the compromise
while conquest of uncharted Cs
may broaden what a seeker sees.

Innumerable Ys and piercing Is.. so true .. a poet has the power to do anything, despite being helpless about anything..powerful words

OK, this was fun to read. Thank you for posting it! I am also a fan of the "uncharted Cs" - Can, Create, Convey, Color - Cs are great! Here's my offering this week: http://caridwen.wordpress.com/2011/12/29/drafting-the-clock-strikes-inspiration/ Happy Rally!

The pronunciation of the letters give this poem a playful tone, yet it is very serious. Really nice word play!

Love the rhythm of this. Clever as well - that first 'Is' caught me out!

cleverly done with wordplay….er, character play.
I like the metonymy used with ''Is'' (eyes), Bs (bees), Ys (whys), and Cs (sees)…cool.

Hey thanks it was fun and I still have to leave a few more comments to get my quota but we had two weeks so I figured I'd space them out a little.
