Why I Don't Write Poetry 2011-1

I am under pressure. The first post of a new year should be something profound and meaningful. I ain't one of those types of people. The most profound thing I can remember is when Noah said, "It looks like rain." Several of my favorite blogs first post this year have some kind of meaning, like "What I learned last year", "What I'm striving for in this new year", "I'm going to do this this year," and on and on and on.

So what can I post that is meaningful? I've got nana. So maybe it's time for a "Why I Don't Write Poetry" post. Yeah, lets see where that will lead:

Why I Don't Write Poetry 1011-1

A new beginning in this new year,
New laughter, new tears, new treasures, new fears.
New paths to wander,
New thoughts to ponder.
Words to write that was left unwritten,
Muse's prompts that was once hidden.

I choose to go the way that I walk,
To ink the metamorphic rock.
To look at the world through my eyes,
Then edit, polish and revise.
Though I may often fall short,
My desire cannot be thwart.

This year I send you blessings,
Of every kind, wrapped in different dressings.
Dream your greatest dreams,
May your eyes shine and gleam.
Fight that which is your greatest strife,
But most of all, thank you for touching my life.

You're a poet
But you don't know it.

I hate to tell you but you have been and I suspect will continue to write poetry.

Someone has to wake you up so here I am, shaking you by your shoulders and kissing you on the cheek. "Wake up Walk. You're a poet at heart so change that title to 'Why I Do Write Poetry.'".

That's orders from headquarters.

(Just messing with you. Do what you do and call it anything you want. I'll love it).
