...Iambic pentameter is for the ear. Read it out loud.

Bio
While the ashes of marriage #2 were cooling, I began a journal here in verse, to keep myself out of trouble. So far so good, and one day at a time. I took a hiatus this past January, and I missed it terribly. Writing daily had changed the way I think - not my opinions, but the process of thinking itself. So here I am back again, and hungry. I began with three rules: (1) Iambic pentameter, (2) Perfect rhyme, and (3) It had to be true (no hyperbole). I hereby amend rule number 3: If I'm writing about myself, yes, it has to be true. But it doesn't, if I want to tell a story.

List. Sunday Mar 14, 2010

Rate: 4 Flag

The Star Wars Lego book, a tennis ball,
A whistle from Brazil put back together,
The Guinness Book (a woman eight feet tall!),
And daily young obsession with the weather,
Along with Harry Potter, Volume Six,
Will all pack up and go on Tuesday night,
Assuming there's no issue with Her flight.
Some several broken toys I have to fix
Will stay behind, for want of Super Glue,
Along with birthday cards, and works of art,
And quiet mornings, not enough to do,
And sitting down, and wond'ring where to start.
And drumming fingers, with an empty heart.

Aww. Yep. It hurts to see 'em go. Nice that you can put them down on paper to let us know two things. You're a dad who loves his girl and you do great verse. Chin up!
"And drumming fingers, with an empty heart"
Sad DB. It's good that your writing it.
Love what you're doing. No doggerel here.
Hi Steve, welcome. I wasn't sure, when I started, if I would be able to get past incidental verse. Thanks for the boost.
No, I love your tone and (I'll brave a word here) the quotidian detail.
