Poetic Line Generator

I created this poem entirely from lines generated in a poetic line generator. In no way do I claim this as my own poetry, but it does have a similar feel to a lot of the abstract poetry that I have written.

You can check out the poetic line generator that I used right here: Poetic Line Generator

Go ahead and let me know what you think. Are the robots going to be taking the poets’ jobs any time soon?

The Memories of Pain Embrace in the Water


Two figures of love turn after the storm.

Your oldest friends of words sleep amongst the

Shadows. Shapes of summer echo like a

Dancer alone on the stage. The leaves of

The soul sleep inside the meaning. Men dressed

In the color of the dance reach stillness.

The trees of harmony vanish like a

Child. The oceans of desire join in

The insect air. Your oldest friends of tears

Cry in your forgotten dreams. The seasons

From your past whisper inside the meaning.

Two figures of wanting echo beneath

The surface. Some of the waves of wanting

Breathe sensuously. Poets of time touch

The meaning. The children of winter speak.

    1. The theme/topic/lesson/emotion of the poem is up to the reader. I let the poetic line generator dictate the words and their order. I only arranged them into the shape they have.

      I am of the opinion that the meaning of poetry or any artistic work is completely generated by the reader. And I think my point of posting something that was randomly generated was to show that there could be meaning in something that does not have a thinking author.

      I don’t know. It was a long time ago. I write in a much more realistic fashion these days, and I think poems like this have merit. But these days, I write to be understood and enjoyed. And not so much to try to prove some kind of a point. Thanks for the comment. It was nice to take some time to reflect on what I do as a writer. 😀
