Sunday is not a good day to write poetry

Poetry Pantry, you can clobber me if you like.

Sunday is not a good day to write poetry

Sunday is not a good day to write poetry,
because if you need to work (like i do),
the day is white-washed, you reach home frayed,
you think of food, and bed, and not poetry
(unless the muse sympathizes with you).

And if you need not work, you want to play,
suddenly the day flaps by very quickly,
(remember, there's always not enough time for fun)
unless the muse tags along, which is unlikely,
you may have a couple of lines, or stanzas
about your great BBQ party, or that hike in the hills,


Sunday is not a good day to write poetry.


Ah, some gibberish from my NapoWriMo archives. This coming Thursday, I will be on a course, some tech stuff (imagine me trying to stay awake), so Thursday is not a good day to write poetry too.

Love the wit in this ... Sunday is a wonderful day no matter what you do ... it may inspire you to write poetry later in the week. :)

I prefer other days to write too... somehow Sunday is better for reading poetry...

The pantry invites re-posts for just that reason. I find Sunday full of muse, empty of time. Truly enjoyed this poem!

I can resonate to the feeling of being tired and not wanting to write poetry.. but oh the urge to write just sort of draws us in.. doesn't it? :)

It may be a repost, but your muse still wanted you to play, and I'm glad you came out. Wishing your day will bring you moments you can fall into.

LOL, this made me smile. Luckily you can post oldies at the Pantry. I do it most of the time! Smiles. Good luck on Thursday.

Well, actually I agree with you. Often there are other things that one either HAS to do or WANTS to do on Sundays besides write Poetry.....unless the muse IS co-operative indeed!

This brought a smile. Though, lately, some weeks: no day is a good day to write poetry.

i love Sundays! :)


"Sunday is better for reading poetry", i think so too! :)


thank you! always good to know the muse is around. :)


if one is juggling a job, sometimes it gets too tiring to write anything. and yes, at times the urge still draws us in, no matter how tired we are, and we are thankful for that. :)


thank you! i have a playful muse, if she's not moody.
at the original post, there weren't many views, so i thought i would post it again. :)


this was at my other blog where the traffic is very much lighter.
about the course, i would probably nod off in class. :D


yes, sometimes it seems 24 hours is not enough for a day. especially Sundays! :)


haha, hang on there!! :)
