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!


70. 11th Mar: Colour Of The Day - Red

Date: Wednesday 11th March 2015

Style: Free Verse

Title: Colour Of The Day - Red

Colour of the day - red

Anger at the world

Hate in your head

Red is the colour at the end of the spectrum of visible light

It's what men see when they are drunk and looking for a fight

Roses are red

A primary colour

The blood of the dead

Scarlet are the lips of the lover you lost and pined a lifetime for

Burgundy is the wine you drink to remind you of her

Red is the colour of sin

Scarlet whore of Babylon

Suicidal pills and gin

Crimson is the colour of the autumn leaves that fall and warn of winter

Red is the colour that fades with age as you withdraw from communion and splinter
