Although every now and then I dabble in poetry I must admit it is not my strong suit. Generally what I write is a bit whimsical with no deep thoughts connected to it. I admire those who create beauty with their words. After coming off a month long challenge of writing something every day I had no desire to spend the next 30 days writing a poem a day, so I am not.
However, I am challenging myself to write a poem every Tuesday for SOL. What kind and how successful I am remains to be seen.
Friend and fellow slicer Carol Varsalona issued an invitation last week in her post for people to write a poem and submit it to her for her Poetryliscious Gallery. In case you didn’t see Carols invitation here is the link for it: https://beyondliteracylink.blogspot.com/2022/04/i-am-pleased-to-say-that-i-successfully.html I am sure there is a better way to insert this link but I admit I don’t know how to do it.
With Carol’s permission I am extending her invitation to all who read my post. I am sure that if you participated in and read posts during the March challenge you came across many formats you think you would like to try and I am sure some of them were poetry formats. Why not give it a try and submit a poem to Carol?
Knowing my style of writing Carol suggested I try writing a doditsu. I admit I wasn’t quite sure what the format was so I did some research. It sounded like something I might be able to do so I gave it a shot. Here is what I came up with. I hope it fits the pattern and I hope you will join me in submitting a poem to Carol for her gallery. I look forward to seeing what you come up with.
The skies opened up; rain fell.
Drenching all who ventured out.
Rivers flowing down the streets.
Nature’s birdbath filled.
