The Poetry Corner featuring Vic Tomlinson

Good morning everyone! Please join me in welcoming Vic Tomlinson, and his poem, The Stream.

 

The Stream by Vic Tomlinson

 

The old stream

just keeps flowing.

 

I could spend all my time

just watching and listening to it.

 

I stick my feet in

and it cools me on a hot day.

 

It trickles down

from one level to another.

 

Patches of moss are scattered

along the edges.

 

Tiny minnows nibble

at my toes.

 

Small pebbles lie

beneath my feet.

 

It just keeps going and going

before and after me.

 

Awesome poem! Thanks for sharing, Vic!

About CP Bialois

Where do I begin? Well first I guess it's only fair to say that CP Bialois isn't my real name. It's a collaboration I made out of the three greatest pets anyone could ever want. My real name is Ed and I'm just an average person that has found a way to do what he loves. For as long back as I can remember I loved to pretend. Whether it was with my Transformers, GI Joe, or He-Man toys I loved to create intricate plots and have them fight it out. As a fan of horror, science fiction, action, and comedy I dare say my taste in movies are well rounded. Some of my favorites were Star Wars, Star Trek, martial arts, and anything with Swarzenegger in them. I'd write my own stories about the characters I saw in the theaters or TV or I'd just daydream about what I'd see myself as the hero of course. You can't have a daydream without beating the bad guys, getting the girl, etc. It's just not right to envision yourself as a flunky or sidekick. As far as books I loved Sherlock Holmes, Treasure Island, Dracula, and the normal assortment. My early love was the Star Trek novels, I'd read them or the Hardy Boys relentlessly. For a time I could tell you the plot of over a hundred books not to mention comics. I have to come clean and say that I learned to read because of comic books. I was bored, make that extremely bored when we started to read in school. Reading "the cat fell down" really didn't interest me. My dad, who continues to astound me with his insight to this day, figured comics would work. With that in mind he went to the newstand in town and bought issues of Donald Duck, Scrooge McDuck, Tales From the Crypt, and Spider-man. He patiently read through them with me until I picked it up. Whether it was him or the comics I learned to read in about two weeks and for a while few were as good as I was. For years after that whenever we'd go out he'd always spring for a couple of comic books for me. While it wasn't exactly the perfect beginning everything I've ever read or have seen has influenced me in some way and now is the time I'd like to share some of the ideas I've had over the years with all of you. I hope you enjoy my stories, they're always fun to write and I don't see myself stopping anytime soon.

    Why don’t you just reblog their work instead?

    • cpbialois says:

      Being featured in this manner puts them squarely in the limelight. Reblogs are often passed over (in my experience), but I do reblog them if they have a blog and post it there and prefer me to do that.

      • Drem says:

        I reblog and never find them to be looked over. Sometimes I write an intro about why I found it important. Then it links back to the original article after an except and gives the original author traffic.

      • cpbialois says:

        Very cool. They’ve been hit or miss with me. Doesn’t mean I won’t stop trying. 🙂

      • Drem says:

        Yeah. I just typically prefer it because traffic is important for both parties when looking for 1) personal possible ad revenue 2) for potential publishers to see your sites traffic which may be used to analyze distribution of work, etc.

        For me using this site as a type of portfolio for future commercial plans, it’s crucial I keep up a steady readership.

      • cpbialois says:

        Definitely. That’s why I also link to any of their social media sites they want to share. I believe in giving full credit and spreading the love as much as possible.
