Amazing what a prompt can do.

Something borrowed, something new?

  1. C. J. Black.

I don’t seem to have it in me to write poetry

Tonight I’m going to prove myself wrong – how hard can it be?

A well-crafted design from this poet

Poetry doesn’t come with a road map – another myth – I’ve blown it?


Irrational thought, leaping from one thought to the next

Continue writing, all will eventually fall into context

When this happens, come celebrate the mystical experience –

Of words meandering – intelligence?


The beauty of being left to your own devices

Corresponds with you having a sack load of choices

This inevitably leads to you writing to satisfy your soul

Never allow I don’t have it in me on you take its toll.


It needn’t be spectacular, write the poem to prove a point –

To yourself, yes I am going to be compliant

Write this poem, then be content

That you can yourself compliment.
