It’s official. The solstice is here. There’s only a few days left in the regular school term. It’s summertime in the northern hemisphere.
On this summer solstice day, I hope to use the extra sunlight to explore and make varied attempts at poetic word play.
To say that poetry is difficult is an understatement. It’s a wordy challenge to write it right. All those stresses and unstresses, not to mention those lines of metered feet.
I dabble at writing poetry, which is a vague way of saying I’m not very good at it. I don’t do it often enough, the reason being is that its not easy. I know I said that before, but it begs repeating.
Will anything come of my attempts today at poetic word play? Maybe. Maybe not.
But I’ll give it a shot and will hopefully learn from my attempts (thank goodness for erasers).
What are you doing with the extra sunlight of today, the longest astronomical day?
