As I sit me down to write
I pray the Lord to see the light.
Let relevant ideas come to me
And let me write great poetry.
If the poems that I post
Are not liked the very most.
Let me take it all in stride.
Teach me not to run and hide.
Bless my computer and my pen
In your holy name, Amen.

Couplet or cinquain
Different forms of poetry
That just confuse my brain.
ABC and rondeau
Acrostic and canzone
Stanzas, rhymes and verses
And don’t forget the tone.
I can write a limerick
Even a couplet too
But writing an epigram
I am not sure I could do.
This is all so confusing
And readers, I am sorry
I have to make a confession
I just don’t know poetry.

In my ‘about’ page, I promised to only write in poetry form but I’ve decided to forego that just this one time. I promise. I just wanted to talk to you normally.
A Buffet Of Thoughts has turned out to be my favorite blog. I enjoy writing every poem and because most, if not all, of them are composed spontaneously, I often write with a big grin on my face as I relate some funny story. The feedback has been a good motivation also. Yesterday, Buffet Of Thoughts received its 50th follower! Not a large throng I admit, but I am thankful for little things. Even 5 likes make my day. I meant 1 like.
For the month of April, those of you who are following me would see a daily poem in your inbox. (Lucky you!). If that’s too much then I’m sorry but I am taking part in the National Poetry Writing Month or NaPoWriMo and that means I have to submit one poem a day. When it’s over, I promise to write only once a week or so.
To spruce things up a bit, I have decided to introduce two characters, Gilles and Mavis to the mix. Gilles is the bumbling and not-so-smart husband and Mavis basically wears the pants. Some of my poems will be centered around their adventures. Should be fun, let’s see how it goes. (Gilles happens to be the name of my father-in-law also. Just saying…).
Thanks again for all the
love likes. Stick around, I think I have a couple good poems still left in me. Actually, I am sure of it.

A poem a day is what they say
And I of course replied, No Way!
Very grateful that you asked.
But it’s such an impossible task.
And seriously, how many times
Can I reuse the same old rhymes?
You will be quickly bored with me
And my tired old poetry.
A poem a day, they still insist
And I of course granted their wish.
I am honored that you asked.
For me it’s just a simple task.
For in my head are poems galore.
As if I had a poetry store.
A poem a day? A piece of cake.
I’ll do it gladly for my readers’ sake

Should you wish to talk to me
Please do so using poetry
Odes or ballads, I don’t care
All poems are welcome here
So please be sure to co-operate
And I will surely appreciate
Limericks I love the best
I’ll use them a bit more than the rest
I also love free verse and rhyme
You’ll see them here most of the time
So humor me, please be so kind
For they are just xpressions of my mind.
