Metaphor Dice Poetry: Playing with Poetry #playingwithpoetryNPM 28/30

This month, I’m tagging along with ChristieMargaretJoneMary Lee, and other writers to play with poetry for National Poetry Writing Month. I’ll be creating poems using haikubes, metaphor dice, magnet poetry, paint chips and anything else that catches my fancy.

I thought that all of these poetry metaphors had some potential, and I initially thought I might write a longer poem incorporating all of them. But it’s Day 28, and less feels a lot like more right now!

poetry is a reluctant blessing
demurring when commanded
offering surprising grace when invited

  1. It sure can be a reluctant blessing and for me, demurring is to nice a word for what happens when I try to command it. That said, have you noticed that when you are trying to sleep a poem can decide it must get written now?
