Poetry snippets - April 23
I have to admit, I struggled with today's prompt from Bud the Teacher. It is a beautiful image of a cloudy day on the beach, with beautiful sun breaking through the clouds. Two women huddle under an umbrella - which gives a splash of color to the scene. Yet I couldn't "settle" into a poem for it. Instead, I got two bits.
1) A snippet of a poem about friendship. Not really satisfying, as it came to me with some rhyme and I just don't know where to go with it.
Splash of color in a dingy day.
Flash of a smile to light the way
Celebrating when things go well
Commiserating when it goes to hell
Heavy clouds linger
Scattered golden rays announce
Sweet sunshine’s return
Ah well, can't win 'em all, right? I liked yesterday's poem much better.
