Uninspired

I am happy March has arrived, and I can put my adventure with the Aquarian metered poetry behind me. I’ve decided to move into new territory. In the past, I have devoted myself to writing a single style of poetry for the month. Writing in the same style for thirty days can get tiring, so I will lunch a new way of attacking my poetic journey. I will explore three new types of poetry in March, and I plan to write Breccbairdne, Blackout, and Brady’s Touch poems. This poetic adventure will teach me many important lessons about meter and rhythm. Let’s get started. This poem is a Brady’s Touch Poem titled Uninspired.

About Brady’s Touch and Uninspired

Brady’s Touch

Maryann-Merryweather Travis created the Brady’s Touch style of poetry in November 2006 to honor Allen Brady. This style of poetry is a decastich or 10 line poem. It follows the pattern listed below.

1. 2 quintets or 5-line stanza with a specific rhyme and syllable count

2. Each stanza follows the same pattern 9-9-8-8-2 syllables

3. Rhyme scheme is abxcd abxcd

4. The second stanza should be a replica of the first in the length of lines and rhyme.

Uninspired
I feel so weary and uninspired
The right words won’t pop into my head.
Word Daddy must be on hiatus
Haven’t seen hide nor hair of him
All Day,

My feet are dragging I’m very tired.
Maybe I should just go back to bed,
Or take a trip to Las Vegas
Count cards and roll dice on a whim.
Let’s play.
