A poem a day…

I took up the challenge, with gusto and pride

For the next thirty days, I was set to abide

To create on the hoof, or create at my desk

A poem a day, that would be statuesque

Some days words would flow, with delight and accord

On others I would feel, like a veritable fraud

There were sandwiches prepared, that were fit for a Queen

The importance of reconciling, with all that had been

I remembered my lover, wondering where he was now

Felt the warmth of the sunshine, upon my smooth brow

I considered the advice, of what others thought best

I couldn’t sleep due to nightmares, was unable to rest

There were unconscious connections, abound between friends

And what I would do, with the global dividends

I encouraged all to wake up;  go out seize the day

To be vigilant of individuals, who get in the way

There was the woman who created, her very own demise

To live with integrity, means no compromise

Tensions were broken, and then calmness did reign

I suggested frivolity, can help you keep sane

There are friends to avoid; we all know the type…

I didn’t care, to care, and took a moment to gripe

I suspended old beliefs, within the cosmos of space

Letting life simply play out; we are not in a race

In a grand banqueting hall, was more mention of food

A reminder that we’re enough, and should all be valued

That by knowing our truth, we become our own master

And that when loneliness comes, it is not a disaster

In finding your own rhythm, you will dance to your beat

So don’t do too much thinking, or vocally excrete

So I thank you for reading, for all taking the time

For a month full of prose, of which, some did rhyme.

“Do you know…?”

“Do you know what I think?”

No my friend,

Does it iron out the kink?


“Do you know what I would do?”

No my friend,

Go on, give me a clue…


“Do you know what I would say?”

No my friend,

Would you call it a day?


“Do you know who I would tell?”

No my friend,

But how would that quell?


“Do you know what I suggest?”

No my friend,

Are you really so blessed?


“Do you know how I would act?”

No my friend,

Is it so matter-of-fact?


“Do you know what’s being said?”

No my friend,

What light can you shed?


“Do you know where you should go?”

No my friend,

I’ll just go with the flow
