A-Z Begins and "A" poem

I'm so happy it's April. It gives me an excuse to blog regularly, and I LOVED A-Z last year. I made so many new friends and found some awesome blogs. I'll be continuing the writing theme this year. Though I may insert some photography this year too. Which I hope is fun for you all and will spare a bit of reading for those who are trying to get through a lot of blogs this month. I might keep my posts shorter this year, but we will see what happens. I guess it depends on the letter. A, for example, is going to be short and not-so-sweet.

I guess I should have started by giving some sort of introduction for those who are new to my blog, but I think that you all will get to know me by the end anyway. So, my name is Marjorie and this is my post for "A".

Anger
A moment in time clothed in red,
A heated face and narrowed eyes,
Stomach clenched and bared teeth,
A sinking heart and underneath,
The grasping claws and pain of hatred!

Don't be angry Marjorie! It's not healthy, but sometimes we just can't help it can we.

Nice start and really happy you're doing this again.

Wonderful poem! I loved the image of a moment clothed in red. Very textural and visual, all at once. Thanks for the follow, and looking forward to more of your A-Z posts!

Your photo goes great with your poem. And since April is poetry month this is perfect!

Gail M Baugniet said...

Wow! I felt the stomach clench, saw the rush of blood to the face, experienced the emotional pain of anger in your poem.

MARJORIE ~
What does the other side of your face look like? 'Cause this half scares me!

>> . . . A heated face and narrowed eyes,

Apparently, with me, it's not "narrowed eyes" but "narrowed lips". A long-ago girlfriend once told me that she could always tell when I was starting to get mad and was on my way to losing my temper because she'd notice my lips starting to look narrow or get thin.

I was totally unaware of this, of course, but she said that when my lips started to get thin it was time to leave the room. Ha!

Anyhowz, yer off to a good start, my friend!

Ouch, I'd hate to be on the receiving end of this poem. It burns! Hope you made up with who/whatever initiated this sentiment :-)

Are you sure you couldn't delete word verification for at least this month? Most people have. Makes it quicker.

Melissa Bradley said...

Wicked cool poem and pic. I love the title of your blog. Emerald colored glasses is very different and green is a favorite color.

I like your poem. It explains the subject of "Anger" so vividly and could possibly be a therapeutic read for those of us who get angry sometimes.
