Jotting Without Blotting

I'm eating, drinking and sleeping the Appledore Book Festival, and no sign of indigestion!

I occasionally write
a few poems that rhyme.
It's an amusing way
to pass the time.

But, after years
of free-form jotting,
I no longer want my book
or it's copy blotting.

The hardest part
when writing poems, for me,
is deciding where
the end should be!

It's much different when
one writes in prose:
there's plenty of time
to plan where it goes.

I look forward to seeing you at the Appledore Book Festival. Come and have a chat.
