Challenge 2019 - Week 47 Poem

 

Week 47 words from @green_woodsmith: integrity, electric, celebrate, joy and sage.

 

welcome joy

celebrate life

sing off key

dance in public

be a flash mob of one

it's electric

and contagious

 

you don't need a sage

preaching from the stage

all you need to do

is set your inner child free

trust me, your integrity is fine

and who needs dignity anyway?

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

I usually get to the end of the week and start dreading the poem I have to write. It's my impatience talking. It wants me to churn out the perfect poem, first time, every time. This week I had a little chat to my impatience and told it to pull its head in. It'll about the process I said. We're going to enjoy the process of creating a poem this week so back in your box. 

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're not on Instagram, post your finished poem in the comments below so we can all read your masterpiece. 

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 write a poem with them. Either dm me on Instagram with the words or put them in the comments box below.

Happy writing!
