Friend at Church


It seems the pace of life has quickened and the calendar is full with events, rehearsals and appointments. Today’s post is a blitz poem which is a 50-line poem of short phrases and images and a few rules.  It feels like my life currently.  Some neighborhood children built a couple snowmen in our yard.  These sentinels bring me much joy as I gaze at the front lawn still snow-covered.

    • Anne, look up Blitz Poem with the “rules.” Try your hand and see where it goes. It’s an interesting form which I use sometimes. Thank you for such a nice comment too. It is much appreciated.

      • I last wrote poetry in college and haven’t looked back. It would be a challenge to try a Blitz Poem. Thanks for suggesting it.

      • I have numbered pages in a spiral notebook or double-spaced pages on the computer to keep track of line numbers. That’s the “hardest” part for me. The rest is easy. Just let the words flow and remember to repeat last words on the next line. Until towards the end. If you don’t like the rules, just put the words down quickly and see what happens.

    Coucou du matin ou du soir MARYANNE

    Regardant L’heure
    J’ai traversé toute la ville

    pour aller à la boulangerie chercher des croissants

    Et les partager avec toi avec un petit café

    Et sur tes joues te dire bonjour ou bonsoir
    mon Amie (i) si précieux
    A la fraîcheur du matin
    J’ai entendu le chant des oiseaux

    J’ai vu le soleil qui se lever
    je t’envoie un grand bonjour plus chaud que le soleil ,
    plus clair que la lune, plus beau que le jour

    A la fraicheur de la nuit je me suis dis que tu étais encore la ALORS

    Qu’il fais bon te dire et te souhaiter une bonne journée ou soirée

    gros bisous.
