iambic sick

I have been trying my hand at writing iambic feet
Reading example after example in Debbie Guzzi's blog
But my stubborn mind refuses to learn - "stressing" me out!

    Susan, that Honeymoon poem was in the contest. Though she didn't place it, I was happy to get three faves on it. I also had had four faves on it originally so now I have 7! I think it is my most faved poem after Cinder Girl!!! thanks for asking, sweetie. I better hurry and post a contest poem and get out the door for work.
