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!


17. 17th Jan: Saturday

Date: Saturday 17th January 2015

Style: Rhyming Couplets

Title: Saturday

Saturday's Child is loving and giving, a lot

Seventh day of the week if you're religious

Sixth day of the week if you're not

Might be a morning of hangover, blackout, memory ficticious

Saturday Night Forever!, We know that it's not gonna last

Saturday comes from "dies Saturni" meaning "Saturn's Day" - God of the Golden Age

Get it whilst it's good, don't build up future regrets of the past

But what do I know, I'm no oracle, no sage!

Saturday Night's Alright For Fighting, so they say

And we are decended from animals, in excrement

But don't blame the working class, no way

We are all products of enforced environment

Saturday In The Park, we've been waiting such a long time

But there is always that chance of rain

Invisible rainclouds, distant potential thunder chime

Always ready to pounce, ready to dish out the pain

Someday I'll Be Saturday Night

But for now I'm forcing a smile

Trying to believe in hope and what's right

Waiting for you to twist my dial
