Ah, poem, you fulfill a role,
For each a different need,
Release emotions pent up tight
Or express celestial seed.
Couplet, sonnet, free or rhymed,
Words from mind or heart or soul,
Write on, write on, ’tis the only way,
To practise what we preach,
Scribe the Universe and all within,
As for the stars we reach!
The prompt for today: ” to write a poem that addresses itself or some aspect of its self.”
Okay, my poem doesn’t address itself, maybe, as much as poetry as a whole and I can’t say it’s the best I’ve ever written (don’t we all do that?! – see some of this NaPoWriMo earlier ones though, I think much better!). Ah, well, I tried! 🙂
Thanks for all the prompts and ideas and resources Maureen! Am having fun again this year! 🙂
