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!


3. 3rd Jan: Colour of the Day - Grey

Date: Saturday 3rd January 2015

Style: Free Verse

Title: Colour of the Day - Grey

Grey is the colour of the day

Is it grey, or gray? That depends;

Are you from the U.S. or the UK?

It makes no difference in 'how you say'.

Overcast, cloudy, spitting-down, cold

Warm on the sofa but feeling so old

Above the patio doors ceiling of mould

Bare branches outside missing summers scold

Zane Grey wrote 'Tonto Basin'

Macy Gray 'On How Life Is'

The 2nd Earl Grey liked a cup of tea

L. H. Gray liked to sew, it's the shiz!

Fifty Shades of Grey

Expressions can be ruined forever

That's not a gray area for a grey man

On this gray o-greyest of days
