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!

95. 5th Apr: Beware The Genie

Date: Sunday 5th April 2015
Style: Rhyming Couplets
Title: Beware The Genie

Be careful what you wish for
Your wish might just be granted
Word your wish well
Or you may find it slightly slanted

The genie in the bottle is often a crook
As mischievous as a gremlin 
You'll wish for a skiing trip
And end up in the Kremlin

He would say, "they are both cold!"
This would hardly be the point
Wish you could see it in a another way?
He'd stand there and roll you a joint

Locked in a lamp for a reason you know
Genie comes from Jinn or D'jinn
And if you give them half a chance
They'll do nothing but mischief and sin!
