My little book

I’m down to the last few pages
in this little book of mine
It’s done me proud since April
which is really quite a long time

And over two hundred poems
written and drafted in here
some over several pages
when their syntax wasn’t that clear

It’ll last me proud through December
but then at the end of the year
I’ll find another to carry me through
which I know will bring me some cheer

‘Cos I have to keep on writing
for that is a matter of fact
and a book which I carry wherever I go
will act as an outlet for that

About a book from Venice

Started last September
Eight months of poetry
My little book from Venice
has served me faithfully

But now alas I’m reaching
the last few pages here
A few more days of writing
before the end is near

That’s when this little book
I have carried every day
will join all of the others
in my study on display

And then I’ll have the pleasure
of starting up another
A book of poems filled
from the front to facing cover

As a poet who writes daily, I carry an ‘ideas book’ with me everywhere I go. I’ve done this for years now but still have every one. They each last between 6-8 months each. This one was purchased in August last year whilst visiting Venice, Italy. When finished later in April, it’ll join the others – now numbering just shy of 100. Each is a a treasure. Photo – Jempics 

These Words

These words on a page
in my little book
I’ll return to again
for another good look
As I’ll craft them and
often I’ll rearrange
for the syntax to work
from a nuance or change
And then when I’m happy
with what my words say
I’ll give them a name
and call it a day
