Poetry

Write

Write,

Come on, it’s not that hard

“Her eyes like the sun, scorching like Hell”

Not very good.

 

Write,

Come on, put something down

“His hands like velvet, choking me”

Not much better.

Write,

Come on, poets do this everyday

And yet,

When I try to write the words

I don’t know what to say

 

I could languish away

Never quenched by the poet’s water

Cascading, flowing, gushing, vomiting

Into a dry savannah

 

I could starve to death

Never satisfied by the poet’s love

The incandescent touch that

Grates and chafes

 

Write,

Write me something beautiful and revolting

Something appealing yet grotesque

Write, about anything.

  1. When I struggle with what I want to write, I read what others wrote or I go into my archives and revamp some of my oldies. I also write ahead of time, mainly the haiku/senryu forms of poetry and save them in a word doc. So, when I can’t think of what to write, I already have a few pieces available. I’m considering revamping my 2 books and give them more depth.

    1. Some great ideas Eugenia! I also love your idea of revamping old work. For your books, would you “re-publish” the work? Or would they be so different that they would become a new book entirely?

      1. I’m not sure because the first book is entirely poetry so it doesn’t make sense to revamp the poems themselves. I would like to use illustrations rather than photos – something to tie it together.

              1. I just found a program that has all the bells and whistles called Sketchpad. You can draw, paint, etc., and it comes with oodles of clipart! I created a couple of scenes and now I am hooked on it! So, I will try to do my own illustrations. 😉
