One of the best thing things for me about blogging is the interaction and conversation taking place around the poems and poetry. On Inside the Mind of Davy D the favourite posts are those going beyond the poetry and getting to know the poet, what makes them tick; their thoughts, their motivations, their dreams.
As a development for the blog in 2018 I am going to have a Thursday Thoughts feature which will hopefully allow us to delve deeper into poetry and beyond the poems themselves. This will include thoughts I have as I research and read for the various projects I am involved with and links to information which may be useful to anyone working with poetry.
It will also showcase some of the amazing poetry and talent I encounter on WordPress on a day to day basis. Thursday Thoughts will include links to blogs firing the muse, poems that have moved me to think deeper about the words I encounter and anything else planting a seed for poetry; a piece of music, art, book, photograph.
If anyone has any ideas or inspiration that may create some conversation as a Thursday Thought then please let me know. Together we can make 2018 a great year for poetry.
Today, I failed to write a poem.
One a day had kept me going,
Until the silence in my head
Expanded and my brain went dead,
And left me feeling quite frustrated,
Forlorn, aghast, demotivated,
Waiting for the magic time
When words appear that seem to rhyme,
And give a taste of an emotion,
Or a sound, of an unsaid notion.
Being a poet is just not funny.
I’m only in it…….. for the money.
