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!

Style: Free Verse

Title: Rainy Days

I love the rain, let it rain

It washes the scum from the streets

The heavier the downpour, the better

Forces the dirt into the gutter

Down into the drain where it belongs

I can walk in peace, in empty streets

Rain covering my face, cleansing me

London is mine during this time

I hope it's long and torrential

Forecast for all week long

Sometimes I walk four miles home

Avoiding commuters, their rage

Enjoying backstreets and rain

I'm not a martyr though

I put up the umbrella and stroll

Head down at the soaked ground

I love rainy days, let it rain
