An ink explosion

#octpowrimo #ifiwereyou

opinion is a wonderful thing

but after you’ve vented your spleen

across two pages of finest vellum

re read, recollect your thoughts, and rewrite

for once you’ve stuck it in the envelope

and it’s journeyed to the news paper

a different edition of who you are

will be plastered over the letters page

and though you won’t see them

all eyes will turn on you

The letters that were never sent

#octpowrimo

the old writing desk sits

in a sea of vellum , vitriol, and heartfelt tears

words carved by a sharp mind

and even sharper quill

now piled in a heap in the corner

edited highlights travel down the glass cables

but true intention hides away

under the weight of an empty glass

Churning up ideas

Churn

Sat in the corner in the inkwell

a mountain of thoughts, scribbles and ideas

moments, events and drawings

residing in a purple box

churning away till lightning strikes

and sentences form from that mass of written work

and sent down the line at some great speed

for someone a long way off to digest and read

Restart

Restart

The three buttons pressed

the work starts to disappear

in front of your eyes

 

computer insists

its day has just started

With a nice blank page

 

morals learned today

to take a tea break often

inbetween chapters

A few thoughts by inky on todays daily prompt

Study

Sat in a room, lined with literary works

The lad peers through his assessment

Understandably, he might not produce the works of Keats this evening, but with

Dutiful observance, and conscientious research – he might just do well at his

Year Tutors Assessment of his work

Black

Black

Colour of night

Dark, but cool at the same time

Where would all the sun loving dudes be

Without their darkened shades

Without it

Words would be sad

With only blue to communicate

Red is angry, green so envious

Lines are clear

The pages succinct

And penguins and zebras

Can be drawn, in relief

Great British Write off – a book i’ve appeared in!!!

Today i’ve had my hands in the soapsuds helping out at BASICs Cafe, Food for thought.

I’ve also been assisting in helping to run a poetry workshop in the conservatory.

we discussed what makes a poem and the different kinds of poem you could write

covering everything from Rhymes to Acrostics, Haikus to San-sans

Continually updating your personal web

Over days, weeks and

Nights to please your public is a

Tireless pursuit – albeit an endless one

In time , you master the art of providing

New material for your readers delight…but

Until you decide to pull the plug, the

Eternal quest for new material carries on

Nursery Crime

Rhyme

Sat in class with pen in hand

English teachers lesson planned

write us a poem, without any rhyme

you have a few days – there’s plenty of time

 

So inspiration i did seek

going through books for a week

and every page would set up the same

with two words a rhyming – without any blame

 

Sing a Song of Sixpence, Jack and Jill

Humpty Dumpty, all from the quill

of a master writer, who’d mastered his art

and educated fellows – would tear it apart

 

I did my best – and restored a piece

giving the rhymes their release

but end of the day – i’d return to that book

as i liked the original way that they looked
