Warning- poetry coming your way

I started a short poetry course yesterday. Hey, join in if  you like. It’s only 10 poems long. Is there bad poetry? Morning seems to be a good time to write a poem.

Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow, for heaven’s sake. Sing in the shower. Dance to the radio. Tell stories. Write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem. Do it as well as you possibly can. You will get an enormous reward. You will have created something.

-Kurt Vonnegut, from A Man Without a Country

Day 2: Limericks for Lori on the theme of journey

There once was a woman in black lulus
Who switched to rainbow hued tutus
She transformed her life
Left sadness and strife
Hooping fire has burnt away the bad juju

As a girl she struggled in school
She just didn’t learn by the rules
Now she’s a teacher
Who sees difference as a feature
Hula hooping – one of her favourite tools
