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!

15. 15th Jan: Thursday

Date: Thursday 15th January 2015

Style: Rhyming Couplets

Title: Thursday

Thursday's Child, has far to go, to trot

Fifth day of the week if you're religious

Fourth day of the week if you're not

You could try to be more ambitious

Thursday Afternoon, I've wasted so much time

Thursday comes from Thuresday, which means "Thor's day"

Thunder and lighting, the bell's chime

So many days, you wish them away

Jersey Thursday, purple cloak of velvet to the sky

Throw me tomorrow, looking to the weekend

Friday's eve is here, no need to cry

Two days off from work, to mend

Mrs. Thursday can come to tea weekly

The week has been a long hard road

She sips from the cup so meekly

She'd never bait or goad

Thursday Morning ends another dream

But you make it to the end of the day

Night see's you enter a chemical stream

You get through the night this way
