Poetry Challenge - Week Forty-Four

Poetry Challenge 2019 - Week 44 Words Poetry Challenge 2019 - Week 44 PoemWeek 44 words from @stephaniegotzepoetry: clover, font, mesmerise, collapse and pine.


I want to make a font

I'm going to call it clover

I'll collapse the serifs

emphasise the downstroke

add a waft of pine


designed to mesmerise



Here are the words and my poem for the forty-fourth week of the 2019 Poetry Challenge.

It was hard to come back home from my fabulous road trip and knuckle down to the daily routine. Making time to write this poem was particularly challenging with all my other competing priorities. The ones like washing the dishes and cleaning the house that I didn't have to worry about while I was travelling. But write it I did although I have doubts people. Many doubts about this one.

If you want to join the 2019 Poetry Challenge, head on over to my Instagram account (@indraniperera) where I post the words for the week on Mondays (mostly) in my story. Write a poem and post it. Be sure to tag me and use the hashtags #2019poetrychallenge and #livepoetsclub. 

If you don't want to write a poem, you can still be part of the 2019 Poetry Challenge. Send me five random words and I'll use them in a poem. Either DM me on Instagram with the words or send me an email (indrani at indraniperera dot com).

Happy writing!
