Planetary Poetry

For some reason, I’ve been seeing a lot more poetry on people’s blogs lately. Maybe there’s a trend? I don’t know.

I’ve never been too good with poetry. In fact my favorite English teacher in high school once told me that he didn’t think I had the “poetry gene,” so to speak.

Now I want to make it clear that this was my favorite English teacher, the man who is most directly responsible for me choosing to pursue a writing career. He thought a great deal of me and my writing—just not my poetry.

But what if he was wrong?

So now with a little encouragement from Namy of Namy Says So, I’ve decided to give this poetry thing another try. Here goes:

Mars is red,
Earth is blue.
I like space.
I hope you do too.

Okay, I’ll try to do better next time.

P.S.: Speaking of Mars, I hope you’ll tune in on Wednesday of this week. I’ll be making a special Mars-related announcement.

    my pen is red
    maybe yours is blue
    am poor in poetry
    am glad you are too.

    There is a *lot* of poetry out there.
    It reminds me why I stick to prose …
    You’re braver than I! And funnier …
