tampines leisure park, 7 a.m.

I wrote this for NaPoWriMo 2012, in my other blog, "I write too". One of the better poems I wrote this NaPoWriMo, in my opinion. :)

The park in the title is near to my home, and I usually pass through it on my way to work.

tampines leisure park, 7 a.m.



the rain drops on

         bougainvillea
       and
         ferns

crystals

soon to be
plucked

by

the darting fingers
of the morning

         sun

There are always flowers for those who want to see them.


-- Henri Matisse







I am posting this for Poets Rally Week 76.

I was curious if you ever thought of changing the layout of your blog?

Its very well written; I love what youve got to
say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures.
Maybe you could space it out better?

Hi Anon,

thanks for the feedback. this blog is still on classic template. i have thought of changing it to the new layout template, but i still don't have the nerve to hit the change button. :)

this is a blog dedicated to poetry, so i guess there are always lots of text. but you are right about more could be done in the way of content. i think i am not posting enough, that's part of the problem. i guess i need a rethink on it's design & layout, after all, it's a few years old. :)
