Post It Note Poetry - Day 23

Well that was a long break.  Here's today's poem, inspired by fellow Post It Note Poet Adam Byatt - you should be able to see his poem in the twitter feed to the right.


future tide -  
               i draw a line under  
dried bluebottles

Post It Note Poetry - Day 16

This poem was inspired by a conversation on Facebook.

two men argue 
                    about the burqa ban - 
she feeds the blackbirds

There's some interesting symbolism around the blackbird that is revealing additional depth that I didn't actually intend - but I'll take it.

by the cat

Waiting for the heatwave to end.  This poem came after this morning's practice.

                  attempting awakening
I fall asleep

Post It Note Poetry Day 9

Struggling in the heat.

woke late  -  
                stopped rendering

the walls  
            of  
                         myself


Possibly tried to do too much with this one. Played with tenses to try and generate a matter of fact, brief, diary entry tone and then contrast that with a philosophical ending.   Not sure if it works. I do like the multiple interpretations of rendering though.

Post It Note Poetry - Day 6

A lighthearted poem today.

I took a relief class today and had to fall back on my "small" bag of magic tricks to do some pre- lunch entertainment.

first graders - 
          after the coin trick
that one kid
