Today is National Poetry Day
So I guess I ought to write a line
To express what’s on my mind
Or in my chest
Nestled up beside that beating drum

I sit with pen poised above the page
In truth, fingers above the keys
Searching for a profound thought
But truth be told, except for the decision to write
The cupboard is still bare
Inspired by a combination of Paul Cookson’s daily poems on Twitter and discovering it was National Poetry Day. Wondered if I could do something similar and write one a day for a month or maybe more…
