Bouncing Around

There comes a time
to go to bed
when there’s a rhyme
stuck in my head
that feels it must
be free, though just
somehow not now

Thanks to Susi Bocks at I Write Her for pointing out today, 21 March, is World Poetry Day in her “Celebrate Your Passion” post! I didn’t realize that when I posted my poem above. Why not take the time today to discover new poets, read poetry you love, or write something just because!

  1. Decades ago, I would work things out in my head before committing them to paper because I hated writing rough drafts. Now it serves me quite well, I can remember in the morning what I worked out at midnight.
