Behind the Throne

I do not lead,
merely suggest.
Whether you heed
is not my quest.
Understand, though,
I don’t follow.
Nor stay away.

23 May 2021 marks five years that ha’sonnets have existed. Not this site, though I’ve been writing them since the day after the form was created in the Rhymezone Forums 😁, but the poetry form. If you want to know more about ha’sonnets, see the “About the Ha’sonnet” page.

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!
