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.

               i draw a line under

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.

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.

Post it Note Poetry Day 5

Took yesterday off from writing poetry and bought a writing desk instead.  Today's haiku like poem comes to you from the moist airless library where my mistral fan and I battle to find a breeze.

discordant -  
            the fan and I 
dream a breeze

Day3 Post It Note Poetry

Thank goodness it's Friday,  half the day went to pot due to network issues.  But still, it my frazzled state I came up with this after looking at some inspiring artwork.

Wanted to write it as a monostich:

eating  twilight  shadows  in  the  koi  pond

Now I am not sure if the post it note version looks better.
