I must thank the lovely Jennifer who challenged me yesterday to do this. I have been swamped by challenges in recent weeks and I must say, to my great shame, that I’ve hardly done any of them. To all the people who were good enough to think of me, please forgive me, I greatly appreciate all of you but there hasn’t been enough hours in the day. Shameful and shameless apologies done, now I must ask you to please check out Jennifer’s poetry if you haven’t done so already, it will be worth your while, I promise.
The poem: Tongue-tied
Eyes glued to the road
fractured, febrile thoughts
bracing myself for the call
cursing countless rings
Disembodied tone – voicemail
30 seconds to convey
a deluge, delusions, distance
Tantamount to Tantalus’ torture
hanging up – hanging head in distress
I give up, grimacing, reassess
Tongue-tied not ten minutes before
now my words come to the fore
conjured up by a simple plastic pen
My nominees for Day 1 are:
Obviously, there are no obligations to do this, none at all – you guys can cry off if you want. I know Matt won’t though as he just loves a challenge 😉
The rules for this challenge are:
- Each day for three consecutive days post a quote (any quote – you can even come up with your own) and a poem to accompany it.
- On each day nominate 3 bloggers for the challenge.
- Don’t forget to thank the blogger who nominated you
