It Is Much Harder

A couple of months ago, I signed up to participate in a monthly poetry carnival. Since then, I have discovered several things:

  • there are an amazing number of good poets participating

  • it is much harder to write poetry sober

  • it is much harder to write poetry now that I have outgrown the angst-ridden portion of my life

  • it is much harder to write poetry, now tht I am happy, that doesn't sound like a bad halllmark card

  • it is much harder to write poetry

  • it is much harder to write

  • it is much harder

  • I still love writing

Thanks, Robin. Of course, if I turn to alcohol, throw my husband out on the street, submerse myself in self-inflicted drama all in the interest of improving my poetry, I take full responsibility.

I know I can't write poetry. That's why I didn't sign up, but I am enjoying what other's have written.

My 3 daughters and 2 of my sons write poetry. I'm in the process of making a collection of the ones they gave me. It's their next Christmas present.

Now you see why I haven't participated. I can barely keep up with the 5-7-5 of Haiku Friday.
