I woke up to a risen sun And clouds consumed with gray. I take a pen and start to write. In spite of charms from morning light I haven’t much to say. I often blame this on my brain. Why pace so, to and fro? Impatiently I start to stress. Persistence generates a mess Then drains. I watch it go. Another stanza? Oh, why not? I have a lot of time. I scribble some and cross that out Then doubt what it was all about. At least I still can rhyme.

I noticed from Kim M. Russell’s post that we each have poems in Visual Verse this month. My submission is Birds, Cats and Dogs. A poem by Jane Dougherty is also there. Visual Verse sends an email with an illustration at the beginning of the month. Poets are limited to 50-500 words and one hour to complete a poem. At the top of the page is a “Newsletter” link that you can use to get on their email list.
