My Poem Performance of “Once Upon a Twice”
Hi there. Last week, I was quite busy with the Once Upon a Twice online YouTube recitation contest. Once Upon a Twice is a creative Jabberwocky-like poem written by Denise Doyen. The book tells a story of a young and adventurous but naive mousling called Jam, who gone through a thrilling experience of life. So one day, I received an email from the author who got to know me through my action poems on Youtube. She invited me to join the contest, which I happily agreed. Because the poem was so creative, I was motivated to compose music and songs… Read More "My Poem Performance of “Once Upon a Twice”"

Why I Haven’t Been Posting Frequently in April
Hi guys 🙂 If you’ve been around Gloson Blog for a while, you’d have realized that I rarely posted on April. I’m very sorry for not posting because I was really, really, really busy with my upcoming funny poetry book for kids. One day (13th April), as my mother flipped through the mock-up of my poetry book, she realized how plain the illustrations are (which I illustrated in December 2008), and how much it can be improved! For example, my poem mentioned cakes and milkshakes, but there are no cakes or milkshakes in the picture! Only the main character is… Read More "Why I Haven’t Been Posting Frequently in April"

Recently, I decided to remodel PoetryTalents.com so that the people who loves to read my poetry… Read More "Go to PoetryTalents.com to Read My Funny Poems"

Realized about Rhythms
It is a few weeks ago before I realized that my poems had not good rhythms. So, I edited them. And now, they are better. Please read this poem aloud. The Monster One sunny day, I escaped from school. I met a monster which was starting to drool. It looked at me and licked its lips and used its hands to grab my hips. It stared at me and rubbed its tummy. It licked its lips; then it said, “Yummy!” I stared at it and perspired in fear as the monster smiled and shook its rear. It tossed me high… Read More "Realized about Rhythms"

The day after I wrote it, I wrote another poem in school titled A Birthday Indeed. When I arrived home, I wrote another poem titled My Confession. Say You Can! From that day on,… Read More "How to Write Funny Poetry"
