I have been writing poetry for years. Many of my friends have received e-mails which include my poems. I love word pictures and pure silliness as well as some serious verse. This is my first attempt at placing my poetry and some prose musings on a blog.
I have taken an adult education course on creative writing and an online course in poetry. I have participated in both the Poetic Asides and Poetic Bloomings online sites. You will find previously written poems both with and without a poetic prompt and current poems. I hope you enjoy my offerings here.
Since Word Tag is my signature poem, here it is again.
Word Tag How they t u m b l e from my mind─ these words─ Like unruly children quickly running to recess. I want them to play a game with rules. "No", they say, SPORTING on the page; "Come be our playmate. "Don't line us up in S I N G L E F I L E." I try so hard to tag them As they scurry Left and right Before my eyes. Sheryl Kay Oder
