The Write Place

The Write Place

The Write Place

I found the write place!
It’s all write & in the right place.
It sends my senses all tingly,
My brain cells all jingly,
My pencil can hardly keep pace!

I knew it was alright as soon as I turned right, to write.
Across the bridge and up the hill,
I must’ve taken the write little pill.

I could’ve turned right to write,
But on turning left to write,
The lane curved right and bent left,
Which left me slightly dazed, and a little bereft.

But it was quite all write.
It was the write path to follow.
Everything was alright in the end,
Onto the straight and narrow,
Finally, write round the right bend!

26th June 2019

The 26th of June was National Writing Day 2019!
This is my (almost) nonsensical, poetic take on the theme they used this year; though with a slightly different twist, but keeping in mind the, “In this place” prompt.
The task was to free write for 7 minutes, not thinking too much, but letting the words flow, using the writing prompt. I didn’t change anything after the time was up, just went with it. It was a challenging & interesting way to write, and good to take part in the event for the first time.

    I feel there’s a moral to the poem, to persevere & you’ll find the right way eventually. What an interesting prompt & 7 minute challenge! I loved the rhymes in this, you did a great job 🙂

      Thank you very much, Caz, I’m really glad you enjoyed reading my poem. I’ve done free writing once before, but never as a poem. It was a fun challenge, so I thought I’d make it a light-hearted write. I think you’re spot on with the moral, although it wasn’t consciously written to be so..I’ll take it! Haha! ? xx

    Hi Debbie, a late answering this one… My WP reader seems to have dropped lots of people off my reader list.. WP ??
    Anyhow here I am… I enjoyed reading your write, a little bit of nonsense goes a long way into tickling my right arm, and funny bone…. and rightly jolted me out of bed and now I’m wondering what am I going to write bout today….. xx

    1. Debbie Jones says:

      That’s ok, Ivor..I know I’m late answering sometimes, especially if I’ve been busy, then I seem to be on a permanent catch up!
      I’m glad you enjoyed reading my write bit of nonsense. I’d say, as long as you write it right, today’s writing will be exactly right, or write! Oh dear, here I go again! Have a great day, Ivor, & thank you for your kind comments ?

      1. ivor20 says:

        Haha, I’ve actually written a little poem about what I write…. maybe post tonight… ((Hugs))

        1. Debbie Jones says:

          Ahh, excellent! I shall look for it, & look forward to reading it, Ivor! ?

          1. ivor20 says:

            I’ve posted the poem, called “The Sun Never Sets”
