An Invitation to Raw Poetry

A poem to say I can’t seems
the wrong tact to take when
aspiring to greater heights than
ever before achieved,
even than ever before attempted.

So, backing up a bit
with a deep breath
and mustering confidence
I don’t feel yet, I’ll say
a poem a day is on its way.

What I will say easily
is, they won’t be perfection
only offered up for you to find
what pleasure you might in their lines.
So not much different than
poems posted here regularly.

Revisiting and revisions are
down the road activities.
You’re welcome to wait
for the sleek, fluffed versions.
But, I invite you
to walk on the wild side,
join me for the adventure
of reading raw poetry.
