Sun Rise Sun Set, Trees, Festivals...

I wanted to do all the prompts
But life got in the way
I've been really swamped
And almost lost my way

I wanted to create Shakespeare style
I wanted sunset words to sing
I thought of trees for a while
But on paper I couldn't do a thing.

So I gathered pictures
Of trees and sunsets
Played within strictures
I haven't got it yet

So I combined trees and sunsets but no festival this time
Shakespeare style with less with thirty-five lines
For Poetry Jam  and d'verse~Poets Pub

ha. you wrapped together a bit of everything there...there is irony in not being able to write about trees on paper...smiles.

You did indeed capture both sunsets and trees despite your lack of inspiration. Carry on. I enjoyed this posting.

And well done also.

Perhaps, since the Poetry Jam prompt is up all week, you might be able to come up with a poem that IS about either a carnival or a festival or Mother's Day as time goes on... We will look forward to it.

Funny, when you mentioned Sunrise,Sunset, one thing came to mind for me:

Sunrise, sunset
Sunrise, sunset
Swiftly flow the days
Seedlings turn overnight to sunflowers
Blossoming even as we gaze

Sunrise, sunset
Sunrise, sunset
Swiftly fly the years
One season following another
Laden with happiness and tears
(Fiddler On The Roof) - I find myself singing it now as I read your poem and I'm laughing....kinda for I felt like writing something one time and all I got were two sentences:
"On this writing, I'll not do well
Surrounded by mosquito's, biting like hell"
It was a grand moment.....but..... ha,ha Have a wonderful day, hi to all lol

In your own unique way you make it work better than if you had done it according to the rules, I like your own interpretation. Usually it turns out better that way, Gail. Don't sell yourself short. xox
