“I’m No Michelangelo”

National Poetry Writing Month begins tomorrow. I’ll post a new poem each day (as nearly as I can), using prompts from Maureen Thorson’s napowrimo.net website, which I’ve been taking advantage of since 2016. My thanks to her for promoting the gift of poetry. Peace to your !


I’m No Michelangelo

Looseleaf is my canvas,
A pencil is my brush,
But I’m no Michelangelo
Whose works make people gush.

No Sistine Chapel ceiling
Will my poems ever be.
Word painting’s just a hobby,
And my biggest fan is me!
