NaPoWriMo #9

NaPoWriMo #9

I went over to one of my favourite web photo resource sites, found this photo on its home page and was inspired to write my 9th day poem.

image from

old graffiti

it was just
rows of
faded pencil marks
on a yellowed page

scratched in a naive hand
brash but unsure
small steps
like a baby's

for words
for that
great poem

even the strokes
were angry
the mood
probably too

but the elusive
creatures,the words
stayed hidden

and that was why
that poem
never met
the light

of day
