This is my first attempt at poetry, in the last 20 years or so. The last time I wrote a poem, it had an interesting vocabulary of ‘rat’, ‘cat’ and ‘mat’ in it and each sentence had been painfully, but meaninglessly rhymed.
This effort is a reciprocation for a burst of such similar creativity from ‘A’s side all conveyed through the glorious platform of Facebook wall posts.
So without too much ado, here goes:
I spend days writing, but I wasn’t alone.
I sensed a force, cheering me on,
I heard ideas being whispered, from I could not imagine where.
I saw words being formed, from I could not imagine what,
I witnessed dreams being realised, which I could not perceive how,
I thought I was being smart, and I thought I was being clever
Then I thought of you, and I knew the force was our love forever
Here’s ‘A‘s initial poem on Facebook this morning which spurred the whole sequence of events:
This is for my wife….the love of my life 🙂
I am eager to see the fame you will earn,
People will stop & heads will turn.
So keep up the writing that we love to see,
…And soon we will see your novel to be!
Author’s Note: I have a Facebook fan page which is starting to show signs of dehydration in terms of fan count. So if any of my kind readers would do me the favour of going and liking my page, ‘ppreciate it a lot!
