Corona del Semana

26 Nov

I should have posted something before this but what has happened has. I have been busy reading a “how to write poetry” book of late, which includes a lot of exercises to undertake. I will hopefully be able to post some of my exercises on here soon, not sure how good the poetry will be that comes from them as the idea of the exercises are to challenge me and help me be more critical of my own work. So I have sort of stopped writing whilst I have been trying to better understand poetry. But don’t despair as I will post (within the week) some poetry that the book has challenged me to do (it will be open for constructive criticism, as is all my work).

To hold you over in the mean time here is my latest time sheet poem. A fellow employee complained it didn’t rhyme, demonstrating how hard it is to actually get people to appreciate free verse poetry (especially the masses). Enjoy.

We look forward to the week end,
Work behind us for another day
Yet the cloud’s grey the mood,

We soon forget with a taste;
Relishing the freedoms of leisure
And craving time alone or with family.

A time sheet to console sullen skies
And sunny days to warm your rest,
Let nothing eclipse your sun rise

      Me too! The last line wraps it up perfectly.

      Glad you enjoyed the poem, and I think a poem should always try to end on a strong note (I originally wrote it higher up in the poem, but rearranged it for this version). Thanks both for the lovely comments.

    Hey, you have talent. I’d be getting my money back for that poerty book if I was you. I have found that music that was emotionally very moving, playing in the background, connected me to that poet within.


Don't be shy, write a lil' somethin' somethin' ... I won't bite (today)!
