Poetry 365 Challenge: A Poem A Day - 2015

I started this on Inkvite, then Wattpad, now I'm trying out Movellas!

There is no real prize as such, just the adventure of expression, and bettering ourselves as writers.

I'm no poetry expert but used to enjoy writing poems in school. So thought this could be fun and a good way of improving writing skills.

There are no major rules, you can write in any style of poetry you like, as long and short as you like.

I will set set various topics or themes, but again, you can follow your own path if they don't appeal to you.

For example, I think the first poem we write should be on the theme of "New Year's Resolutions" posted on 1st Jan 2015.

I will post the current theme at the top of this page regularly.

Hope you guys like this idea please leave comments letting me know if you support it.

Please share on social media and with your followers if you feel so inclined.

I'm going to use the tag 365 in this so we can find each other's work.

Note: my poems are only semi-biographical!

13. 13th Jan: Tuesday

Date: Tuesday 13th January 2015

Style: Rhyming Couplets

Title: Tuesday

Ruby Tuesday, she's no saint

Third day of the week if you're religious

Second day of the week if you ain't

She don't feel the need to get litigious

Suicide Tuesday, a day of severe depression

'Tuesday' comes from 'Tewesday', meaning 'Tīw's Day' or Mars - God of war

That's the comedown from an ecstacy, a funeral procession

You really want to open that door?

Tuesday night is always karaoke

Lucky or unlucky depending on your view

Drink and cigarettes will make your voice croaky

For the audience that's nothing new

Tuesday's Regret for Shrove Tuesday

Tuesday's child is full of grace

Pancakes on a slow newsday

But don't get a fat face!

What can you say about Tuesday?

Not a lot as it turns out

Who cares about Patch or Super Tuesday?

For a day more interesting day you'll have to scout
