I gave it a go...it doesn't rhyme or even flow but it's what came out when I sat at my laptop to try and write to this theme. :)

Midyear Bonus Theme

I tried to do this theme right now
but all my months are a blur somehow

January, February, March
Was I creative?
I don't recall.
Oh ok, now that I look back I see
All of those words written by me.


April came with self reflection
Who am I, who are you, who are we?
Where is God in all this insanity?
Creatively I bombed


May rolled around with it's blanket of pollin
I couldn't write to save my life
So, I went back to creating with colors
Nothing written, nothing even swirling
around in my head.


June has come and almost gone
Only two things have I written
Once again, self reflection


I don't think I've ever felt
That I accomplished anything in my poetry
It's just words that become too loud for me to keep inside
So, I write them down and hold my breath as I hit publish


January, February, March, April, May and June
have been full of doctor appointments
Stress can either encourage my creative side or shut it down
I am happy to know that I am just one appointment away
From a clean bill of health.
That, my friend, is indeed, a big accomplishment for me.

arquious The PoetBay support member heart!
Apologies that time has flown and I haven't even gotten to see how things were going here at the theme place. And the words pile up and raise up the decibels until they break free. Not often enough for many of us it would seem. And well-being is quite a bonus indeed! Now for the second half of the year.
