13/30 Poem A Day Challenge

Another Poem

I’m tuckered out.
It’s such a pain.
I can not write
a poem again.

I’m quite exhausted
with this versing
though it foments
creative cursing.

I like rhythm,
I like rhyme,
and counting
syllables is fine.

But day by day
becomes a slog,
an endless trek
across a bog.

I’ve had enough
Is it time yet
for a vacation?

  1. OMG! This is how I'm feeling. I'm so worried I won't be able to finish, but I'm determined. Elisabeh on the Dirigible Plum blog also wrote in this vein yesterday. Fun rhyme!

  2. I think it's great that you've written a fun rhyme that's a kind of gripe. We all think it, just put the pen to paper & start. Almost the month's middle!

  3. Oh, I love your mumble-grumble poem! I have definitely felt like it is an "an endless trek / across a bog"in the middle of month-long writing challenges, especially if I do a couple back-to-back. But there's something addictive about writing with a writing community.

    1. I agree. I suspect I am beginning to think in rhyme...

  4. Ha! A humorous take on your admirable discipline. Sally forth, & Happy Poetry Month! Thanks for sharing.

  5. So glad to have found your poems. I'm in awe of those who write a poem every day. Poem on!

  6. Oh boy, can I relate! Good job writing every day--even when the going gets tough!
