Creativity Project Year Two-Day 75

A poem instead of a journal entry:

Journal 3-24-20130001


The following poem was prompted by The Sunday Whirl. The wordle there contained the words in italics. If you need inspiration you should visit that site.

Easy Verses

Plain speaking poems
Jar the mind fully awake,
Never forgotten
Across yesterday, today,
In a hurry, tomorrow.

The poem, a tree
Stirred, its roots linger in sand
Of the beloved
Country, wound around and round
Disguised as something special.

Plain speaking poems
Framed by minds awakened to
The English language
From time of understanding
Until thought’s smooth expression.

The poem freely tells
Story of experience
Travelling inside
Imagination’s delight
At its creativity.

Plain speaking poems
Brought to life beautifully
Spreading happiness
Throughout every existence
In past, present, and future.

I am grateful:

1.   We remained safe through the storms last night.
2.   Mom was able to go to church with me today.
3.   Whoppers were on sale, two for $5.00.
4.   We went to Ross and shopped a while.
5.   Penny ate better this evening.


My Sunday was wonderful. I hope you also enjoyed your day. God is so kind to give us time. I urge you to engage your mind in creating something that will capture some of the precious quality of these moments. You have the talent to dazzle the world if you only apply yourself.

    Nicely whirled JoAnn. Plain speaking poems are always more enjoyable for me. I’m so glad you had a lovely Sunday and your mom could join you in church. It looks like spring is just around the corner for you with those few fresh green leaves. I love the last photo of the reflected sky. 🙂

      Thank you Veronica. I think my real gift is writing plain speaking poems. I was not sure the poem was good. My phrases were such that I was not sure everyone would understand them.

    The great thing about plain-speaking poems is that their simplicity invites readers to become their intimates. On the other hand, high-falutin’ poems intimidate readers and make them think that poetry is not for them. Making truth and beauty accessible is one of the most important things a plain-speaking poem can do.
