What a great poem that rings so true. Sometimes those poems unfold in my head when I least expect it and I'm scrambling to capture them before they fly away!

Wow! This is so impressive! I can relate to your having an idea in your head all day and then once sitting down to write - it's gone. Love this! Thank you for sharing!

A great poem and great message. The rhyme scheme is perfect!
Maybe that's my problem with poetry! I love your advice and will take it to heart. I tried poetry for my slice today - not my comfort zone, but I am giving it a go! Once I got going it was not too bad, but I interesting needed rhyme to scaffold me. Many people say it makes it harder but I found rhyme made it easier for me.

Excellent advice. That has happened to me more than once...and not just with poetry!

I bought myself a new notebook just yesterday, along with some new short and colorful pens! I wrote last night and then jotted a poem. It was fun getting words down on paper. I don't always do my writing this way, but when I have a poem popping, I write it anywhere I can! You just have to. It will not stay put! You are so right!
