World Poetry Day 2017

A little light hearted poem from my book for World Poetry Day.

Poetic Confusion

Tried to write a sonnet,
Was on it like a car bonnet.
But whatever I wrote
Every scribble and note,
Didn’t rhyme at the end
Drove me round the bend!

Tried a haiku,
What to do?
Five, seven, five
Yet still I strive
To work it out,
I have my doubts…

Ballad, ode, elegy,
Epic, lyrical poetry
Epigram, allegory,
Irony, cacophony.
Terza rima, doggerel
Or an ABC poem.

So many poems, what to write?
Is it wrong? Is it right?
I’ll write like me
That’s best, you see
I’ll rhyme and vent
To my hearts content!

Spring #writephoto

Sue’s #writephoto prompt this week.

Spring forth with new life
Drink from me to renew self
Feel energy soar

~~~

But drink sparingly
Drops are better than huge gulps
Just enough for you

~~~

Remember the words
Enough’s as good as a feast
Too much, you’ll regret

I’ll hold your hand
For a lifetime, I promise you
I’ll share your ebbs and flows
You’re my lifeline, I cherish you
I’ll love you no matter what
You’re my heartbeat, I need you
I’ll be there for eternity
You are me, I am you

Day 27 #Loveuary ❤ To Be Loved

loveuary

To Be Loved
To be loved
The most precious feeling
To know you care
It’s soul healing
To feel your embrace
Warms the heart
The touch of your lips
Heats other parts
To know you’re there
Come good or bad
By my side
Whether happy or sad
To love someone
Can be bittersweet
To know you’re loved
Makes you complete

Day 26 #Loveuary ❤ – Devotion

loveuary

To love someone so completely… is devotion indeed.

Some think you shouldn’t worship anyone to that extent. It leaves you vulnerable, so vulnerable.

When you do love someone in this way, it consumes you. You are them, they are you. You would do anything for them, give anything for them.

In many ways, this is how I feel for my Hubby Dearest. I am devoted to him. I would give anything for him. But I know that the feelings are mutual.

My one and only
My heart, my life and my all
Devoted to you
