Some Attempts...

I have met so many talented poets online and some of them have encouraged me to try a bit of poetry or rhymes or well something along those lines. So here goes some attempts. They could be awful, so I say pardon if they leave you feeling dazed. I've made a new friend he is so delightful He makes life seem a little less frightful It is not romantic no weak in the knees No birds and the bees if you please Becky was a mess to this she could attest They had warned her to stay off that camel And as her face met the sand her bravado Vanished quick a pity she did not have a genie upon to wish The first is about how I am not romantically inclined. The second is about having a desert adventure and what is a desert adventure without a genie? A bit of Alladin.

The first is excellent. I hope your new friend isn't too disappointed. The second is pure genie-us. I do flex my poetic side now and again, so I might give you one later.

@bluesa One has to be in the right mood to write poetry, but rest assured that when I am in the mood, you'll be the first I try it on with.

Did you really have an adventure in the desert? One of my friends returned, gave me a photo of her posing next to a disagreeable camel, very funny (I can't remember where that photo is now... ).

@YrNemo , no I didn't have a desert adventure, just pictured what could happen on one. Sorry you can't remember where that photo is, it must have been a very interesting photo. :)

@bluesa I found out since that camels in general often distorted their faces like that, before, after, or while they were thinking of biting their closest victims (and thought they could get away with the act - as usual ).

Back when i was writing on bubblews, i was writing so much that I was back to writing a lot of poetry. it was good for me. i used to love to write poetry. but now i'm not writing much, period, let alone poetry. though i have found myself attempting a few lines of poetry to use in my yoga classes here and there... mostly about nature.

@jillybean1222 , I am not writing as much as I used to either and I am just not 100% comfortable with writing poetry. It's good you are using poetry in your yoga classes. :)
