Write, Now / Poem

It’s time to get back into it. In my mind, blogging is reaching a brick wall and wanting to get to the other side. Most of the time I can climb over the top, scaling the heights easily, no resistance. Words build up and fall down and quite suddenly the brick wall is behind me. […]

Poem #5

Today’s rhyme; New idea – Been done before. This time is different – Are you sure? Writing so many small bits and pieces is a bit discouraging. I feel like I’m not writing anything of substance, or importance. I like writing little poems, but the fact they don’t fit anywhere it pretty irritating. What do […]

Poem #4

I wrote this poem in a quiet time with God today, not planning to post it on my blog. But hey, why not? Things fade away You stay the same Firm foundation, always listening Never sleeping, Your promises stand. I choose to believe, No room for doubt In You I trust. I will run this […]

Poem #3

I love a good cup of tea. Tea doesn’t solve problems But keeps them at bay. Have a cup in early morning Don’t face the coming day. This poem a day thing has been enjoyable so far, though it would be nice if I was writing longer things rather than small bursts here and there. […]

Poem #2

In the past two days, since deciding to write creatively regardless of purpose, I have written six mini poems and a few fictional paragraphs that don’t fit into my novel. It’s quite nice, writing aimlessly whilst knowing I’m doing it for myself. It doesn’t have a point which is the point. Rather than saying ‘it’s […]

(I’m asking the real questions, campers.) Here’s my poem of the day, a short fella that took a few seconds. Isn’t it funny what we can create in […]

Lost and Found / Poem

Just a lil’ thing to say hi. Get back in the groove, so to speak. Something about blogging even if a thought isn’t polished. ‘Lost and Found’, a poem by me: I need You To watch over me. To carry me home To calm the seas. I’m a lost sheep Worn, tired. You’re the Shepherd […]

Blank Pages / Poem

I feel like I have run out of blogging words, so read this short poem I wrote instead, called ‘Blank Pages’. Words sitting on the page in front of me Standing on the outside looking in. Tell me what you see when you look inside You don’t show your tears – There’s nothing left to […]

Us, Today / Poem

What happens to me sometimes when I’m writing is a piece goes somewhere I’m not expecting it to. I can start off a poem with an intent, and then it goes in a different direction just because, which is fine, but that can result in the poem not being as personal to me as it […]
