For the second year I decided to participate in the A-Z Blogging Challenge. Each April bloggers write for 26 days (Sundays off). Each day is a consecutive letter of the alphabet.
Today is April 21st and the Reliable letter R
Roses Are Red is the poetry section of The Bench the section contains eight poems, four of which I am highlighting in this challenge
When I was organizing which pieces should go into the collection I realised that I couldn’t use section headers such as: poetry, drabbles, double drabbles, flash fiction, fiction etc. Too boring. I asked a poet friend for suggestions. I mainly needed help for the narrative poems I wished to include. His comments got the creative juices flowing. Roses are Red is for poetry. I guess I did a pretty good job since a friend took the book to her writing group to use as a model for their anthology 😀
Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
Sugar is sweet,
And so are you
Hopefully my poems have more depth than the example (my reviewers thought so anyway) but I decided it was a good section title.
Really Reading your R posts
It will be quite a while before the roses bloom here. How’s your garden doing?
