touch of love
Words are found inadequate
Mind is confused
Heart takes the lead
I have been writing a daily blog for almost five years.
I started out with too many words a day, trying to paint
a picture that had no flaws.
I eventually reduced the blog to 100 words, or less
per day and the challenge became to be able to convey
a complete idea in as few words as possible.
In April 2013, I took a thirty day challenge to write a poem
a day. I wrote three; a haiku, an elfje and a short poem.
As I begin this blog, having done some research into poetry,
I am overwhelmed by the number of types of poems and the
complexities that make poetry unique and viable as an art form.
My contribution, practice, practice, practice, write a thousand,
do not stop to argue or edit, just write and hope that one day
a few might make enough sense, conform to a recognized standard,
or become know as my style, worthy of being shared with poetry
lovers throughout the world. If not worthy, at least I may have
let the words out of my head before it exploded.
Critiques welcomed…ME and the Boss
cold wind blows
plans are put on hold
chills from head to toes
no one knows
family in distress
stay and play, or go
Stay warm…ME and the Boss
