Poetry Friday




Time for Poetry Friday. My poetic well dried up this week during MOP. I wrote some poems...that pretty much stink. So I give you a poem that sprang out of the dry well. It doesn't stink quite as much as the others. Go to Live Your Poem (What a cool name) to see the other Poetry Friday thoughts. Irene Latham hosts this week. (She eats words for breakfast.)

I search my mind
for a great rhyme, 
I only need
one perfect line.
Just an ode
or a word
lyrical preferred.
A song or long verse
because nothing's
worse,
than a poet
who doesn't
know it.


Thanks for reading.

    Not much luck.

    Thanks for reading, my friend.

  2. Made me smile :-)
    And it made me think about a couple of poems I wrote about my Amy, and that always make me a little bit sad but a little bit happy, too.
    We NEED to meet somewhere. C ships out in 39 days.
    Have a blessed weekend!

  4. What's MOP? Sorry to hear that your well needs a refill. I enjoyed your poem :-) What do you think about adding a little punctuation on this bit: "Just an ode
    or a word
    lyrical preferred." Either a colon after "word" or parentheses around (lyrical preferred)?

    1. Tabatha, LOVE it. Thank you. It makes it read so much better. MOP is Month of Poetry. This is my second January doing it. Love Kat (the brains behind it). You write a poem every day in Jan. On Saturdays you go inside the locked blog and she gives a prompt. It's wonderful.

  13. You had me grinning. My favorite line had to be "lyrical preferred." It can be so tricky to get just the right words down, eh?

  15. Lyrical preferred--fun poem! It's hard to write a poem a day. I'm impressed that you're even trying it.

  16. Your mission, Robyn, should you choose to accept it is to pick up an award on my blog. As always, should you be caught or killed, the Secretary will disavow any knowledge of your actions.

  17. Awww, this is so cute Robyn. It doesn't stink at all, it does exactly what a poem is supposed to do...say what you feel. You nailed THAT, I love it!

  18. Rhyming is tricky for me, but you have that down to a T (hey, that rhymed!) :)

  19. A song or long verse
    because nothing's
    worse,

    know it. .. hahaha true! ... than a poet who doesn't know it. :P

  20. There's a poet here called Irene
    Whose lines are on this theme.
    She hit the write note
    With each word she wrote.
    How I wish to be on her team!
