Assignment #2 Blogging U – Writing Poetry 201
I am late with my offering for day two. I love writing poetry, but it is such a difficult task for me, like pulling teeth. One word at a time.
The assignment was to create a Limerick about a Journey that uses alliteration as a device. It’s a little weak on alliteration but I think I achieved the idea of a journey and the sense of a limerick. The Journey is the struggle or the work that is done while meditating to move your mind from chaos to tranquility.
Journey from Chaos to Peace
Once on my cushion, I sit still
To tame the emotions to my will
Dismiss from my mind
Chaos not in line
With the peace I wish to instill.
