When was the last time you wrote in rhyme? For me it had been quite some time.
Until I was contracted to write some hymns. My mind worked out like it was in a gym.
I flexed my brain…and flexed it…and flexed some more. It was like trying to settle an ancient score.
My fourth grade self took great delight. He made a bulb above me light.
Rhyme after rhyme. Time after time.
What fun it was to fit the meter. I almost felt like a little cheater.
The rhymes rolled and rolled, and rolled again. And all the ink flowed right out of my pen.
It’s not too hard if you really try. The rhymes right out of your head will fly.
So if you need a creative spark, write some rhymes until it is dark.
Your challenge today is to write a poem. I don’t care if anyone’s home.
Leave it in the comments below. That way all your talent will show.
