2016 Nov PAD Chapbook Challenge Day 21 – ‘Set Thoughts Alight’

idea

Today’s prompt: Write a ‘thinking out loud’ poem.

Set Thoughts Alight

When left alone
I will often vocalise
Thoughts deep inside
Be it an initial spark
Of a yet-written story
Brimming with potential,
Or simply passing inanities
Such as what’s for supper
Or tomorrow’s shopping list
Half-muttered out loud
Before it makes it to paper.
But at least it invariably does,
Unlike those pesky idea sparks
Which I say I’ll write down
But then will sadly forget
So it dims to obscurity again.

Last year’s poem for Day 21: ‘Through Creative Eyes’
