I'm writing poetry

I'm writing poetry

A Poem by Celtic Cat
"

just now, here...I'm happy

"

lying in our bed
flying in my head
thoughts circle
round n round

Lost n found
Underground
I’ve been browned
and battered

Do excuse
tend to amuse
it’s a trait
they say
I think

it’s all within
reach within reach
become the matter
you matter

“Whatcha doin’, baby?” he asks.
“P-p-p-poetry” she stumbled.  “I’m writing poetry”

I like the hesitancy with which she answers; any poet worth salt feels humbled by the craft but beauty, for the most part, is truly in the eye of the beholder. Different strokes for different folks. We simply grasp at those spinning thoughts like motes of dust in morning sunshine and try to realize them onto the paper or the computer screen. This held a relative theme for me; aspiring to my worth as a poet in the judgment of others.

I like it. The hanging line "I think" is very nice rhythm stumble. It covers that nice, sticky emotion of doubt very nicely.

Fun, thanks! :)

I always tend to stumble when I have to admit to my poetry, with those outside people, of course, the kind folks here don't pay any attention to it . . .

I like it. I felt like I was flying. Until his voice broke in, then I felt myself stumble. That's good stuff.

I like it! Writing poetry is like that. Thoughts floating and spinning around in your head demanding to be put to paper. Not allowing you to rest until it's done.
Great piece my good friend.
