My Crappy Poetry: Entry #1

 

After the Rain

Tiny, yellow snails

Slowly invading my yard

Crunch under my feet

  1. Ha! I love it, sometimes the most nonsensical, and random poems are the best, because they’re so real 🙂 Look forward to more of your poems, which I would call many other things but not crappy!

    • Thank you 🙂 I don’t like to take writing poetry too seriously because I want to enjoy writing it. I had some rather brusque poetry teachers in school, so calling it “crappy” helps me break away from my own insecurities about it.
      I’m glad you enjoyed it.

    • I don’t know what it is – we’ve lived here for almost 9 years and all of a sudden all these snails and slugs show up whenever it rains now. My son and I were trying to “save” some of the snails the other day, but they were everywhere! They are kinda cute though. 😉

      • NVM haha. I thought you disliked them.
        But if you try to save them..we’re on different ends. Hahaha.
        Snail power to you…. I guess 😛

    This is sooo how I feel! I love this poem!
    I dislike snails with a huge passion. I hate when it rains because it brings them out. And they dominate the world! But I’m too scared to kill em by foot. I steer away from them.

    • Thank you 🙂
      And it was more of a life lesson in showing my son how to “save” them. I find them rather annoying. Still cute though 😛

  5. I rather liked it; it’s very descriptive and cute. The simplest or minimal seems to have the biggest impact. Keep writing!

    • Thank you! I like that about haiku as well – it’s a challenge to fit everything I can into this tiny little box.

  8. That does happen! Ok of course it does but you just reminded me of the times we’ve had snails in our yard 🙂
