Not Quite Poetry

Every day I use my time Writing poetry line by line, Sometimes I can make it rhyme, Sometimes....... I can’t. My head is full of tum te tums When I just want to write The serious stuff on big long lines like proper poets might The words come out as simple ones Not intelligent or deep, Nor contemplative trains of thought that make the reader weep Poetically inclined I’m not It doesn’t really matter I’ll just keep writing day by day And maybe I’ll get batter er..better

Kaye I know exactly what you mean I have a lot of problems thinking of something to write, that is why I haven't written many, but you have done a good job, keep going and take care................Vera...............

I didn't believe it at first, but it's right when they say that the more writing you do, the easier it becomes Vera. Just enjoy it and hope for the best is my motto!! Many thanks for taking the time to read it and comment. Best wishes Kaye

I like simplicity in writing; also I don't like looking through a dictionary while reading a poem. Practice makes perfect; this poem could well have been the first step that leads to a long poetical journey. // paul

Sometimes complexity is just complicated. Simplicity is refreshing and at times more challenging.
