In answer to a question.
For National Poetry Day.
Here’s the challenge – compose a poem without words.
I suggested, this idea was away with the birds.
To think that one could really complete such a task –
Was ludicrous in the extreme to even ask.
The only way was I thought – take an empty page
Attempt to write nothing stage by stage
Taking it carefully line by line
Thus far this challenge was going fine?
There is nothing that cannot be achieved
Once a seed is sown a notion is conceived –
A poem without words is what you’ve got
Amazing what you can conjure up when put on the spot.
