Well today is the day – National Poetry Day. The launch of the Poetic Vision anthology was great with over 70 people in the Zoom room.
In view of the day & my attempts to get into writing more I came up with a very short, hopefully funny rhyme.
National Poetry day is today When all the wordsmiths come out to play And as I attempt to write a little ditty I hope & I pray it won't sound too shitty Creation is easier using pencil and paper Deciphering it? Yeah that's a good caper, Has a spider scrawled across my page? Or is it a sign of my old age? The muses who help relay the rhyme Always turn up at just the wrong time At 3am I should be asleep. Instead of deciding which words to keep When morning comes will I remember, The words that came to me late September And as I struggle to read what I wrote I've completely forgotten that 'brilliant' quote.
