Its really fascinating how I get easily influenced by what I read – that is, writing-wise.
I remembered reading this book about sister princesses fighting dragons and rescuing each other. It was a beautiful story that it eventually inspired me to write a poem for someone I really cared about.
And this was the finally piece:
I’ll Never Depart
Jan. 2, 2005
No towering castle No losing battle No magical fairy No spiders so hairy No fire-spitting dragon No gnawing gryphon No beguiling specters No glowing scepters No spell-casting witches No gigantic leaches No fire-bosomed sorcerers No weeping losers No one thing to offer Yet I’m here to suffer With all my heart Not knowing where to start Still I’ll never depart
It’s a very simple piece. I think a 1st grade student could actually write it. But knowing myself.. I guess t’was a good start.
