Today I am combing Poetry 101 Rehab: Home with H in A – Z April Blogging Challenge. My two choices this week are:
Home is more than bricks and mortar
Opening doors to many
Memories, mistakes and special moments
Especially keeping us safe and secure
My home is my castle, it
reflects my personality and
doesn’t fit a mould.
There are certain things always
travelling with me wherever I
make my new home.
This weeks theme is END. I struggled a little to picture in my head what the end looked like which made writing poetry more of a challenge.
I wondered around the bend
Looking for my friend
I sought him here I sought him there
Finally finding him in the end.
The end is coming
Thank goodness! It was no easy task
Let’s celebrate now
This week’s poetry challenge theme is THAW. In Australia this word doesn’t have the same power it holds in many parts of the Northern Hemisphere.
I like the snow
I like the ice
To work yesterday I couldn’t go
And shoveling is such a chore
So today I like the thaw
Come in and thaw out
Love will defeat the cold
Together we’ll grow old
Today I am joining Mara Eastern’s weekly poetry challenge to continue to develop my newly found poetry skills. To add some interest and mix it up a bit—each week using the theme I will write two poems, not one. This week’s theme is RIGHT—I have chosen to write a limmerick—in celebration of St Patrick’s Day yesterday and a concrete poem.
Is it wrong or is it right?
This is my common plight
How can I tell?
If I do not dwell
Because I need to prepare for the fight.
Yes I got
from my right. Then
I solved the problem
I put a ring
