Perfectionist Poet

I set out to create a rhyme but the sounds won't come together A haiku it was now going to be but the words became too many I decided a sonnet will do fine just then the words disappeared only ten lines shy of four I couldn't gather enough Ps to make a tautogram and the alteration was already lost An elegy would have been too sad This was going to be epic! In the end I created a beautiful mess with words Perfectly imperfect

There are times when our original intentions take a detour. Some wind up at a dead end, but others... those others go on to bring recognition to a poet's pen. It can be a curse or a blessing. A very good write, Aheri Rose. That's a lovely name. I hope you enjoy writing in Poetry Soup.
