I didn't realize that April was poetry month...that's how uninformed I am. Thanks to Toni at 3AM Designs for giving me a clue!
I currently prefer to write prose vs. poetry. Poetry was something I did in my angst-y teenage years. But a few years ago I discovered an on-line website for the great refrigerator magnetic poetry packs. Surely you've all seen them, right?
I used the "Artist" kit and had loads of fun creating the following poem (obviously some of my teenage angst is still with me!). Because you can only use the words provided in the kit, it demands a bit of creative twisting in order to find a word that conveys your intent. Soon after I posted it to the poetry forum on the website, the company selected it as their 'poem of the week' and gave it front-page exposure. What a hoot...I guess that was my fabled 15 minutes of fame!
So, in honor of Poetry Month, I give you....
You fashion a latex rhythm,
then meanly break harmony
...and imagine it a masterpiece.

Grrrr...I have given up trying to format my poem the way it is supposed to look. Blogger refuses to insert tabs where I need them!
Have fun playing with mag-po - why not share a poetic creation in the comments section...
