This week I am proud to highlight Dave King's blog Pics and Poems as the Poets United Blog of the Week. I have long followed Dave's work and find him to be very creative and to write unique poetry in a wide variety of styles on a wide variety of subjects. He often looks at subjects very intricately. I think he has a scientist's mind with a poet's heart. One never knows what will find when one spends time with Dave, who lives in Surrey, England, UK. I sometimes think, "What a mind!"
There are many poems of Dave that are worthy of highlighting. I have selected only a few. I hope you will enjoy them, as I have, and also look around at his blog, where you will find many gems.
Love Song - a very recent poem of Dave's. Do you yearn for 'castles in the air'? I found this poem very touching.
The Value of a Gift - this poem was very thought-provoking, and it inspired a wonderful discussion. How would you weigh in on the value of a gift?
Little King - I will say this was just plain fun, as Dave responded to a Magpie Tales prompt. Dave really has a sense of humor.
Parkinson's - This was a very moving poem, for anyone who has known anyone who was affected with Parkinson's, as I have been.
I think if you read the above poems, you will get a good sense of the diversity of this poet. Dave, thanks for being part of Poets United.
