Tweetspeak Poetry is hosting their second annual poetry at work day January, 14.
My last post was a rondelet about resolution. I don’t make New Year Resolutions, but I do have writing goals. This year I would like to compile my poetry into a chapbook manuscript. Today I wrote a senryu about my job:
Lounging in bed
Rhyme, meter and verse coalesce
Poet hard at work
Maybe I should take Tuesday to stop lounging and get to work.

Ah! yes, some of my best poetry is written in my head in bed. Interestingly, I have the same writing goal for this year! I do believe we both will get our chapbooks ready to print.
Thanks, Ruthi. I can use the encouragement. Such a daunting task to go through my poems and figure out a focus for a chapbook. Good luck on your book. It would be great to celebrate our success together!
Yay for chapbooks!
Reading this makes me want to write more Haiku.. (Is Haiku plural? Hmm) I feel most at home in that style of poetry.
Yes, haiku is the same word singular and plural. You should check out the #haikuchallenge on twitter.

In the haiku form

Poetry at work
Good luck on your chapbook, Veronica!
Poetry. At work. I did it. 🙂 lol
Yay! I’m still “at work” and apparently the flowers hubby bought me yesterday were not a nice surprise. He liked my poem Sunday so much, he wanted to know where my flower post was this morning.
LOL Too funny. “Did you bring me flowers because you love me or because you wanted me to immortalize you online?”
