There are so many blogs
out there — quite profound with good advice;
I’m just trying to find the right literary cogs —
the meter and rhyme so nice.
My poems don’t claim gravitas;
they aren’t heavy with deep thoughts;
though they reflect both anima and animus,
I try to stay away from “shoulds” and “oughts.”
On occasion, a free verse narrative will do,
something with which the reader may identify.
From it, perhaps gaining insight quite new
or a different take on a remembrance
prompting a smile or a teary eye.
Mostly, I just write what pops into my mind,
giving credit to the origin of thoughts I find,
hopefully, with the right meter and rhyme.
Sometimes free verse is just fine.
