SOL 15: Trickles





Sometimes they go


Sometimes they seem to sputter

out like an old jallopy


excite my thinking

Reading posts ignite a spark

creating images

on paper

Slice of Life fuels my writing

to think,

to create,

to write.

    Great poem, I love the analogy to a sputtering jallopy. You always give me something to aspire to with your posts. Thanks.

    Awesome MH–I hope you write more poetry. This trickling nature of this one really works.

    Yes,I think you’ve got a thing for poetry, too. The structure of the poem flowed naturally to writing! Blogging does make you think more and you start writing one idea and end up creating another idea you didn’t think was in you. Let it flow, Mary Helen!!!

    Ahh, just before I opened your slice, I was sputtering like an “old jallopy”. I loved your poem. Thank you.

    I like the car analogy – sputter, ignite sparks, fuel – this poem is like a tank of gas for me!

    I too love the car analogy. I could picture the words and ideas just sputtering out of the exhaust pipe, as your words spread across the page. Brilliant!

    Love the poem too! You’ve captured my thoughts and feelings about writing and blogging — right down to the sputters, trickles, igniting and fueling!

    Love your poem. I totally connected with ideas flow in trickles…well, more like a slow drip.
