World Poetry Day: An Ode to world Ps

A friend just told me that today, March 21, is World Poetry Day, so I urge each and everyone to try to reverse any aversion they have to writing. Crank up the muse and get your pen, literal, electronic or otherwise, working. I’m making my contribution spontaneously and spurred by my favourite letter of the moment, P.

Petals: pretty, protruding, precious, pendulous.

Petunias, primroses, pansies; petals pendant.

Pause! Pleasantness prevails.

Places patiently poinsettias.

Palms pregnant. Pots prepared.

Pure Ps.
