Prose For Thought: World Poetry Day 2017

Life has been rather busy and hectic lately. I wasn’t sure I’d have time to mark World Poetry Day this year. As it is I’m two days late in getting this published but brilliant blogger Vicky was on the case and wrote something brilliant, and on time!

Here’s my effort… World Poetry Day 2017

Pictures not needed,
Paint them with each word.
Imagery imagined,
Emotions stirred.

Use heart and soul,
Share hopes and dreams.
Storytelling too,
Is all as it seems?

Many different ways,
To write poetic lines.
Haiku; sonnet; ode,
Oh how language shines.

Words and sentences,
Letters and rhyme.
Expressions; confessions,
It’s poetry time.

  1. Love this, especially the lines ‘Pictures not needed, / Paint them with each word.’ and ‘Oh how language shines.’. I had a crazy week, so didn’t manage to publish a poem to mark the day, argh, I need to put this date in my diary so I don’t forget!! #prose4t

  2. Great to see another poet sharing something for World Poetry Day – to be honest I totally forgot about it until Vicky mentioned it! Thank goodness for you.

    Hope you’re doing alright and the sun is shining on you.

  3. Great poem, I always struggle to write them and there are so many different ways to do so! I didn’t think I was going to make it but about 8pm on world poetry day something just popped into my head! #prose4t
