Do you have time for poetry in your life? Do you ever write?

There is no shortage of time poetry or poetry about time. The website http://www.poemhunter.com/poems/time/ has many excellent poems on time. You could spend hours reading the wonderful poems about time and its effects on people’s lives. I recently borrowed some ideas from this poetry and wrote Karen a poem on time for her while she was in Phoenix visiting our daughter. She told me when she returned that it was the first time that anyone had ever written her a poem. I thought that was sad since we have been married now for over 20 years and neither I nor anyone else had ever written her a poem. I think everyone should have a poem written for them at least once in their lives and the subject of time is a good place to start.

If you peruse some of the poetry at this website, you will find some excellent ones but some that are just okay. I think it is like that with anything. We have good stuff and we have average stuff and some bad stuff. However, we let the outstanding scare us from attempting because we say “Oh, I could never write that well.” Well, you might be able to or you might not but it really does not matter. Not everyone will be a Tiger Woods or a Michael Jordan, but that should not deter anyone from playing golf or basketball; likewise with writing poetry or a book or doing anything else. There is always room in this world for more creativity, for more poetry, for more stories.

If you don’t start now, then when will you start? Write your loved one a poem today, just for them. Write it about time or about anything else that is special for you. Give it to them and see what they think. You don’t have to be a great poet, but who knows, maybe you are.
