What is an Occasional Verse
An Occasional Verse is Poetry for the Everyday Poet. A website devoted to enabling poets easy access to publishing their occasional verse, poetry collections, poems, lyrics, odes, songs and sonnets. Starting with the ability to post their own work on and even going as far as starting your own poetry website.

We are still working to make An Occasional Verse easy to use but as you can now easily register and begin uploading your own poetry. The collections option is also now working. When you log in you will have the ability to Add a Collection. Then when you go to upload your Poems you can pick from your collections.

As of 04/21/2005 you can't search or list based on the Category but we are working on that also. We appreciate your patience while we make this the best poetry website available on the web.

We look forward to your comments and feedback.

I Am Becoming - Viewed 5477 Times
David Devaney
January 21, 2007
I have stepped beyond the horizons of my own destiny
discovering there the precipice that is my incarnation
my acceptance my endurance and
my fulfillment
I am not now nor have I ever been alone
along this journey through the intimacies of my creativity
for the beauty of this universe has forever
lit the candle of my inspiration
There are hearts that have touched my own with their
with their sensitivity and with their commitment
to my growth, my exclamation and my
Life is not merely a journey in which we are the passengers
upon the midnight express to a land beyond the everyday
nowhere of our existence
but rather our participation in the creation of the heaven
that is truly our foretold destiny and our reward
Who am I to question or interpret the wonderment of this
beyond my own reality as I challenge the dreamscapes of my heart
I do believe that there is a God, magnanimous and powerful,
guiding my excursion with his wisdom and enlightenment
so that I may achieve the self, soul and sentiment
of my essence, my spirit and my humanity
We are neither the seers of our destiny nor prophets of our
as we embark upon this journey but rather the culmination
of the blended energies of our experience, our recollections and
our thought
I love because I am, I create because I endure and I fulfill
because I am the self of this mystical journey into the identity that I am becoming
