Dear people of Bloggsville.Monday is not always a great day.But It is a day that I think ,for no particular reason , should be marked by a weekly poem.Thus I say to you, dear bretheren, indeed verilly I say unto thee ,why not join me in writing a poem at 7pm every Monday.Just whatever comes into your head.No forward thinking plotting or planning, keep thy minds as blank as they can be till the clock strike seven ,then write whatever in your head there may be.Unleash it, let it free. Don't guide it or question it, set it free for better or for worse and dare ye not under any circumstances rewrite it. Be sure and be finished by five past of the seven at the very latest.Here is mine to get the ball rolling.I hate rhyme, yet when push comes to shove see how the words rhymeth? Spooky.See you next week at 7pm, be there, or don't be there ,but if ye do be there then post your ponderings upon yer blog.Then let me know and I'll try and post a link to yer blog. I want to see if there is a Zeitgeist.Most of us don't like Mondays for most of us it's the first day back at work after the weekend.Will there be a common feeling around the world? Should a few people actually respond to this I will change the time to 7pm on a FRi or SAt night and see if there is any perceptible shift in mood.Thank you comrades.
So to recap, next Monday Aug 31 at 7 pm your time(or as near as possible) write or draw whatever comes into your head.You must spend only 5 minutes writing. Post the result on your blog, let me know you've had a go and I will post links to all the contributors on my blog. Thank you comrades, live long and prosper (but at nobody else's expense) :)
I should say it all
chinese whispers of truth
the version of the vision
I held so aloof
and would you call me friend
if you called me at all
in our virtual world
the king still conquers all
Passages of time lessen passages of remark
the scars are deeper down than the
flatness of the dark.
This is shite but yours may be good ,or not ,what have ye to lose?And it doesn't have to be a poem, just express how you feel
