Twice tasted

This month is Post-it Note Poetry Month, a very informal challenge designed to be a fun way to get people writing. There is no pressure, just an invite to write something small enough to fit on a post-it, everyday for the month. 

I have joined in for the past 2 years but this year has proved difficult and I don’t quite know why. There is a lot going on at the moment and my writing has suffered. Not that I am a serious writer, in that I don’t make a living at it, it’s my hobby. I do it for pleasure and the pleasure hasn’t been there lately. 

So I have not managed even a bad post-it poem everyday. However, I did manage this one inspired by a rosehip I spotted still clinging on against the odds in February.

It seemed a good fit for the Daily Post Photo Challenge.

Post-it Note Poetry #16

Find me the time
      to do the things that must be done.
Find me the time to
     stop and sit and think –
Thank goodness! All that is done!

A19

The road ahead
promises escape and adventure
Blue skies and sunshine
beckon me south.
Duty and responsibility prevail
dragging me east
at the one-seven-nine.

Demons

This week the demons came.
Distracted by imps of my own
I did not see their darkness
And you were left to fight them alone.

In the stacks
I find hidden gems.
A Perthshire Notebook,
Letters to her Daughter from Calamity Jane,
Journeys off the Beaten Track,
Their pages sing like a siren’s call
And lure me from the task at hand.
