Today is day one of the Ultimate Blogging Challenge yet again. Today marks another start for me trying to revive blogging habits. And as I start my first post, I realized I need to overcome writer’s block, seriously!! And thinking over it, I finally decided to start with poetry for post one.
Trying to explore poetic forms is something I always enjoyed and that
is what I tried in my day one post – the lines below are an attempt to
use the literary devices anaphora and antimetabole (and not sure if a
successful use of aposiopesis in the last line).
derived from a Greek word which means “turning about”. It is a literary
term or device that involves repeating a phrase in reverse order.
writing or speech, the deliberate repetition of the first part of the
sentence in order to achieve an artistic effect is known as Anaphora.
derived from a Greek word that means “becoming silent”. It is a
rhetorical device that can be defined as a figure of speech in which the
speaker or writer breaks off abruptly and leaves the statement
incomplete, as if the speaker is not willing to state what is present in
his mind due to being overcome by passion, excitement or fear. In a
piece of literature, it means to leave a sentence unfinished so that the
reader could determine his own meanings.

Lovely poem. I really like the message it gives across. I'll admit, I'm having to overcome writer's block as well for this blogging challenge. It involves a lot of head -scratching, mumbling to myself and wandering around my house trying to find inspiration. Good luck with your writing, I look forward to reading more of your poems.
🙂 made me smile.. the head-scratching, mumbling to myself, wandering around looking for inspiration – remind me of myself too…
thank you for your kind comments on my poem as well..
Writes Block is hard as I also face it at time. So your braver than I am by choosing to share a Poem as it isn't something I would even know how to do.
thank you:) writing poetry is something i love to try out always .. and you are definitely someone who inspires me – reading your blog shows me how much you are doing on a daily basis ..
Lovely poem. What I found for myself is I write down some subject for each week so It is easier to have an overview of what you are going to talk about. Thanks for sharing!
Thank you for sharing I totally get it!!!
I so relate and what a beautiful message – that the more we do what we love, the more we will do it. I too wrote a post about the same topic awhile back to help me work through the kinks of writer's block! https://goo.gl/grvFja
I tend to get writers block at times also even though I have a list of blog topics I can write about. Sometimes we just have to start hitting the keys and see what turns out. I love your poem, it would make a great song! We can to this challenge together!
