A place of waffle
And lines strung together
In an attempt
To make art
A sand box
For rhyming words
And fusing words
And playing with iambic pentameter
In a sea of many voices
This is but another drowned mariner
Attempting to sound clever
Amidst his final gurgling gurgles
Happy New Year, Happy Middle of the Year, Happy End of the Year: dependent on when you read this, if you ever do.
For me, 2017 was a creative year.
During Lent I wrote a haiku every day for 40 days. During the spring and summer, I wrote 100 sonnets in 100 days. Having experimented and trial-ran those two sessions, this year I’m going to attempt the 365 day challenge.
The 365 day challenge is where you decide to do something creative every day for 365 days. In a phrase: it’s a creative new year’s resolution. I’ve chosen to write, and blog, a poem every day.
I hope you enjoy following this waffling poet as he experiments with varying poetical forms.
