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.
