The Orange File

I’ve tried and failed
so many times
And sometimes wailed
a lack of rhymes
For then they sit
Unfinished bits
To remind me

Even with all the unfinished bits sitting there reminding me of my challenges, I have still managed to post over two hundred of the silly little poems in the two years (today!) that I’ve been posting. And people still read them! Thank you all!

Oh, and why an Orange file? Well, “There ain’t no rhyme for oranges!” 😄 H.R. Pufnstuf and Witchiepoo courtesy of Sid and Marty Krofft.

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!
