Ironically I was traveling earlier in the week and thought the time spent at night in my hotel room would inspire me to catch up and write some articles for my tech blog DragonBlogger.com but instead I found myself inspired and only interested in writing poetry.
I literally couldn’t get myself in the mood to write for my tech blog, my artistic side wanted to shine through and I churned out about 28 haiku’s and 6 poems in two nights, most of them queued for my poetry blog but some used for random Twitter or Facebook broadcasts or submitting to other poetry sites and contests.
Here was one I decided to post right here:
Maybe fate decides my right
it’s not my choice of what to write
my own hand stills at subjects denied
from my brain itself, creation is pried
so I write with no purpose or intent
until my creativity at last is spent
-Poem by Justin Germino
Okay, make this now 7 poems and 28 haiku’s written in 2 days (most of the haiku’s were typed out on my blackberry on a plane and my thumbs were very sore by the time I was done).
Speaking of poetry, you can now follow @poemwatch on Twitter and friend my poetry specific twitter account.
