Writing 201: Future
Ben asked us to write a sonnet about the future
I still think I am in need however of a tutor
So please excuse the lack of expertise
As I try to make this look like a breeze
The future is what I make of it
What I make of it, is my future
Does that make me sound like a twit?
I’m really not good at this I admit.
Seriously though I just want happiness
Enough money to keep me out of a mess
And my kids to live happily ever after
That might sound like a little bit drab
But it’s all I could come up with, I know, sad
But if this I achieve, I will be glad

I want to thank everyone for all you support over the last two weeks of the Poetry course. I have been amazed at the lovely words both from new blogger buddies I have met through the poetry course and my regular blogger buddies who pass by to kindly read my rambles.
It is amazing once you get in to the groove of writing poetry daily, like most things it becomes easier. Having said that I have a long way to go with this skillset, but I enjoy it which is the main thing. So don’t be surprised if you see a few more, probably linked to challenges.
