My Journey Thus Far…

Standard

I had these books waiting to be read and they were on top of one another just like that…I smiled as the vision of this book spine poem came into my head…even more so because it spoke to me about my journey with words, and writing. It felt like it was describing my journey in words thus far…hence the title.

To cut the long story short
A poem travelled down my arm
Once
Becoming Ebony

 

Books Used:
1. To Cut The Long Story Short by Jeffrey Archer

Reason2Rhyme Poetry Prompt – “Book Spine Poem”

Standard

This is my entry for KarenB Nelson’s poetry prompt this week. We were asked to used book spines to create a poem of any style. I came up with an Haiku…it’s not in the 5-7-5 pattern, but it is 17 syllables so I am hoping that should be ok to pass as one.

As always feel free to critique and comment, and check out her website if you are interested in trying this or any other prompt from the past. Thank you!

English Chap (Faithful Old Lover)

Standard

I am in need of
Amusement
Perhaps pleasure
I am in need of…

Something

I check my pad
4 old lovers
And counting

I flipped through names
what a delight

And to think I had been bored
for days
Longing
Aching
Yearning
and waiting
for this tide of boredom to turn

I decide on an old favorite
An English chap
I’ve always had a thing
For those sorts

This particular lad has a way
with words

I am a sucker for words

This bloke never disappoints
He would satisfy me
No doubt

I flipped my pad
Giddy with teenage excitement
bustling with anticipation

Ready- steady- go
