    What up fam, i know i been pausin for a min, but imma try and come and join on the poetic flows i be missin. Heres one i wrote a min ago


    Royal Jazz

    Moving to that Royal Jazz
    The bass of Life
    That razzmatazz
    druming back to what I have
    drumming back to what i've had

    Still listening to those priceless beats
    those boom... boom... baps... that hit my street
    moves my ear drum
    and taps my feet
    moved my ear drum
    and tapped my feet

    People movin up and down my way
    with different rhythms to their sway
    that makes the musik
    that makes my day
    made that musik
    that made my day

    Langston Hughes lived it,
    roaring treble, cat gut lace
    pumping on my darkened face
    As I live in the jazzy grace
    occupied this jazzy place

    The beat slows down
    and turn to blues
    rat-a-tats back up
    amidst good news
    always obeying
    the rules i choose
    never to change
    the rules i choose

    Im living in the
    Royal Jazz
    the beat of life
    that razzmatazz
    Keeping touch with what I have
    never letting go
    of what I've had...

    This was simply off the chain...for a moment I could imagine myself moving to groove. The imagery is a big plus. Much love.

    Thanks for respondin yall

    Nsyght, i was kinda wondering whether the imagery would be noticed, but im glad it was. I actually had a beat goin with the song, lol, thanks

    Rich, ur right, in a way, it is beautiful. thanks for blessin my poem by respondin...

    BlkAngel, Im glad you moved with the flow, i made the poem general, because i wanted it to be a relative thing, and not a prizefighter thing

    Enjoyed the rhythmic flow of this, and the message of cherishing the knowledge of the past, while still learning from the present. Flow on.

    This does have a nice beat and flow. :hot: I can hear a sax playing as I read it, I visoned going to get mine and blowing a few notes. But it is late and that wouldn't be right. Keep flowing Prizefighter.

    I enjoyed the flow and the rat-a-tats
    Jazz is beautiful music
    You took me there so now I am listening to jazz of my own.
