Trying to write a poem

Trying to write a poem

On this dreary morning.

Thoughts jumbled in my brain

Like sentence fragments

Bursting with energy at recess.

No apparent direction.

Look to the East, and

The sunrise

Or

Look backwards in

Regret.

Things I didn’t say,

Should have said,

Might have done

Didn’t do.

Dreary morning.

Trying to write a poem.

  1. And you did it! This is the second poem I’ve read about trying to write today. I admire both of you for creating a poem out of that difficulty. I agree with Elisabeth that the circular form works really well here.
