A poetic bit

So, inspiration comes at odd moments. When we least expect it.

Mine came on the frigid Friday evening when five writers and an artist gathered around an inspiring blue table.

Haiku. We all had to write a haiku based on the topic of flowers.

I agonized over correct wording and imagery, and managed to pen three haiku right on the spot.

In the words of Catherine Drinker Bowen, “For your born writer, nothing is so healing as the realization that he has come upon the right word.” Well, I may not have scored the right word yet, but we artists did have fun creating fragrant haiku.

What poetry or snippets of words have you created recently?
