Morning Prayers

Have you met Jim, a poet and runner over at rite2run? You’ll not regret reading this post and making a visit over to his place!

Poetry In Motion

Morning Prayers

begin with a reading

not mine

Hoagland, perhaps Pardlo

            no need to rhyme

*

pick up a pencil

            let your imagination go

scratch out a verse, or five

            until something flows

*

at times its torture

            borders on tragic

persevere long enough

              you’ll find the magic

*

like jazz it’s best

to just let it be

words fall into place

that’s poetry

*

I won’t ask you

            to LIKE me

to SHARE, or even

read my poetry

*

that would be self-serving

             somewhat unnerving

dare I say pretentious

for all of us

*

what it comes down to

is this

discover poetry

            and find bliss
