Apparently April is National Poetry Writing Month….I had no idea! I have not written poetry since high school. But I decided recently that I would stop being fearful of exposing my writing to possible criticism, rejection or even approval. So I accepted this challenge from The Daily Post to write a poem….But how do I start?
One of the suggestions was to pick up a book (any book), turn to page 72 and use the first word on the page as the title of the poem….so I did!
Today, freshly made, a new beginning.
Today, gratefully received.
Today, spend it wisely, or laze it away?
Today, focused or sporatic?
Today, a gift no matter how it was spent.
Today, fade to dark.
