Terrible Poetry

Keeping in mind I’m fairly new at this blogging and writing thing, I’m still exploring a lot of old posts and such. This week I shared a poem with Saddle Up Saloon: Anyone Can Poem with Chel Owens at the Carrot Ranch Literary Community. Well didn’t that take me down the proverbial rabbit hole eventually popping up at Week 3 of Chel Owens now defunct Terrible Poetry Contest from November 2018. She has posted some excellent content too. I highly recommend checking out her blog. Anyway, writing terrible poetry sounded way better than whatever I was getting paid to do at the office –To my boss: I’m on lunch break, I swear! – so I just had to give it a go. The instructions: Write a terrible haiku for the topic “Falling Snow”. So three years late, give or take, here it goes…

Terrible Haiku #1

Snowflakes falling white
Landing where I dare to walk
Pish I’ve fallen too

Terrible Haiku #2

God scratches its skin
Psoriasis falls like snow
To my waiting tongue

        🙂 I meant the blog post of entrants and winners. You go ahead and do whichever you like; I’ll start the contest back up when I’ve got more free time. It’s a lot of fun.

        Sorry if I was being silly. I know you meant on the list of entrant submissions and I know it not really “published” but technically it is. Either way it would be first time someone took anything I wrote and posted it in another blog (or anywhere) which is pretty cool. Never had anyone do that with my stuff before. Can you blame a guy for being excited! As for the contest, it does look like it was a lot of fun. I was reading some of the other entries on the other posts in the series and thoroughly enjoying the submissions.

        Oh, good! It’s difficult to know sometimes. Yes; many if not all contests were phenomenal in their terrible-ness! You’re convincing me to hold another, for old time’s sake….

        Yes; I’ll do it. I’ve been really missing it.
