Do you like poetry? I often prefer to write it more than read it, which seems strange, I’m sure. But then I find poetry sometimes that is a great read and all is well. 🙂
During PiBoIdMo in November, I learned of MoP — Month of Poetry. I said then that I would consider attempting the challenge which was scheduled for January. When this month arrived, if you have been keeping up with my posts, you know – I was involved with family things and being so busy that I forgot about #MoP until a few days in. Since it was still okay to sign up I joined seven days into it. Then for day two, here is my offering:
A poem a day
What was I thinking!
Rhyme, rhythm, cadence
My eyes are blinking.
My verse is too tight
There’s much I don’t know
For thirty-one days
My words have to flow
Well … so I’m not a great poet, but that’s not the point, anyway. (fortunately for me) The inadequacies were creeping in, but once I got over myself they disappeared. The main thing is to have fun trying, writing and reading poetry, and we are learning some new styles and forms as we go along. Plus Kat (the originator and host of this challenge) has a few guest bloggers to encourage and educate us. It’s all good and I am enjoying it, and the fact that this challenge is set in Australia.
So, if you are interested in accepting the challenge to write a poem a day this month follow this link before opportunity to sign up ends. http://monthofpoetry.wordpress.com/2010/12/16/whos-in-month-of-poetry-2011/
Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings! 🙂
