Poetry Process

I sit
And write.
Pen gripped
Too tight.

I ponder
And think
Of words
That don't stink.

I try
To create
Poems that
Resonate.

Some do,
Some don't.
But give up,
I won't.

    1. I'm glad this struck a cord with you, Linda. Facing that blank page/screen can be and is so hard. Grip that pen and let it flow! =)

  2. I love that the goal is words that don't stink. It's always best to set reasonable goals. : )

    1. Thanks, Liz. Some days getting words on paper is tough enough let alone not stinking! LOL! Alas, some of my poems are definitely aromatic. =)
