drawing a blank. BUT not really a BLANK.

more of a [searching for content] message

many thoughts SOME poetic

many NOT poetic at all

picking raspberries so ripe

the slightest tremble

makes them fall fat and wet

to the delight of ants and birds

baking [select item] and waiting [file loading]

smells of the oven delight

eating alone sometimes a treat

dirty dogs sleeping sound

dead lawn mower [confirm delete file]

should shoot it [cannot delete selected file]

falling asleep at the starting gate [error: starting pistol failed to load]

and yet HOPEful

drawing a blank [enter title here]

watching hummingbirds and bees through

a dirty window [windows failed to load]

and thinking about clouds and storms

[save file to cloud drive] press enter

impatient pokes and peeks [close file]

waiting for baking to be ready

[warning: contents may be hot]

thinking that life can be randomly POETic

[save file] and sometimes in the hate

[discard hate letter] and violence

[ignore command] we find sunflowers

growing beside the road

      Thanks Brian! It has been a poetry snippet day for me. Couldn’t capture them all but did snare a few, along with some fresh scones with berries from the garden.

    a DIY title and poetic words, hey ~ Anything, everything is good if it can stir up our muse and let us believe we can ~

    • shanyns said,

      You got that right! If it moves the muse it’s all good!

    Very clever form. The whole poem captivated me, but I loved the ending….and the finding of sunflowers growing beside the road!! I believe. I believe.

      Thank you Mary! I didn’t get to go back for THAT sunflower picture, but I did do a turn around for another. I just love sunflowers! Glad you enjoyed the form and the poem.

    LOVED this!

    How apt – my daughter just sent me a pic on email (load file) of the plate of fresh scones cream and jam they are having (insert mouth watering) really enjoyed this! πŸ™‚

      Yummy! πŸ™‚ Thanks for coming by, and am glad you enjoyed the poem.

    What a fun and clever form, Shanyn. But I love the connection to nature, the details shared, the lovely sensation of “just right.”

    LOL- this is so creative… I love it, Shanyns.

  10. August 21, 2013 at 2:47 am

    Nice!! I love this!! I love finding poetry in the every day!! πŸ™‚

      Thanks so much! Everyday poetry is really fun, isn’t it?

    Very modern. Writing poetry as act of computer composition – it is spunky, clever, apt, and tangible. To think even thirty years, it wouldn’t even have made sense. Super well done.

    • shanyns said,

      Thank you very much Gay! I love your thoughts on this. Glad you enjoyed the poem.

    What a clever way to deal with writers’ block! Have had waaaay too many such moments myself lately, but haven’t dealt with them in such a witty way.

    • shanyns said,

      August 21, 2013 at 3:02 pm

      Thank you πŸ™‚ It is frustrating the poetry comes when I can’t capture it or it won’t come at all! πŸ™‚ So glad you enjoyed the poem.

  14. August 21, 2013 at 12:16 pm

    Love this.. .many brilliant jokes around here.. like windows and cloud… happen to work in these areas so I’m well aware of this… wonder if you finally got a blue screen ?? πŸ™‚

    • shanyns said,

      August 21, 2013 at 3:03 pm

      Ha! No I avoided the blue screen πŸ™‚ but I did get caught in an endless (seemingly!) loop with [task manager]! So glad you enjoyed the poem.

    Shanyn – I love that you pushed through and crafted this piece – all the distractions and then this finish:

    and sometimes in the hate

    [discard hate letter] and violence

    [ignore command] we find sunflowers

    growing beside the road

    and can [loading faith] believe still

    • shanyns said,

      Thank you! πŸ™‚ So glad you enjoyed this one. πŸ™‚

    This is so clever. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this…it’s given me a really broad grin (on a bad mood day). You caught me out too…for a moment I thought you had forgotten to enter the title. Love it!

    • shanyns said,

      August 22, 2013 at 1:10 am

      πŸ˜€ That is so cool that the title made you think there wasn’t one! So glad you enjoyed the poem. and that it gave you a big grin on a bad mood day is even better!

  17. August 21, 2013 at 5:36 pm

    Shanyns, I love the counterpoint between nature and technology in this. Your little muse took you for quite a ride. On our walk this morning the dogs and I were surrounded by sunflowers. They make me so happy.

    • shanyns said,

      August 22, 2013 at 1:09 am

      Sunflowers are happy flowers for me too! Glad you enjoyed this. πŸ™‚

    This is so clever! Awesome write, Shanyn!

  19. August 22, 2013 at 6:31 am

    Shanyn, this was such a delightful read. Your little brackets, like imps, hopping about on the page. Particularly liked the “ignore” on the hate mail, and the near-constant error messages. Such fun! Amy

    Shanyns, I echo the others on this poem, clever and sprinkled with great images and scents.
