Editing Info and Poetry!


Give it a couple more days and my book will be finished: written, edited and uploaded to the Amazon pixies who’ll work their magic.

I wrote this poem after about five hours editing today…some times a person just has to WRITE!



Crikey, there’s no disputing

With all my recent book editing

That my poetic self is fidgeting

Some might think unused it’ll be disappearing

But no fear, in verse I’ve been yearning

To create lines of expression rhyming

Suppress the poetic urge, but it’s fruitless denying

That for my attention it’s always vying

Like a child on e-numbers but not annoying

To my heart poetry is lovingly calling

In words delicious it wants to be feasting

Creating, soothing, bathing, never destroying

So, factual sentences for the day snoozing

On my hard drive and memory stick snoring

My brain has danced around words alluring

And swirled in a poetic trance exhilarating

This poem has been written, merrily flowing

To leave the writer and reader’s soul’s glowing.


And tomorrow…you guessed it, more editing…if my brain cell doesn’t spontaneously combust. LOL.

Take care.boo
