The morning team

image

Every morning they are present

Choosing and sharing poetry with us

Poetry written by the old masters

Poetry to delight the heart

And then add to this poetry the 

Amazing art of hieroglyph  

They do it so well that it seems easy

But this is not a job for the faint of heart

 

And there is the back and forth

The teasing and the jabbing

The humour and the laughter

And as if that’s not enough

Poems are written on the spot

Following the rhyming scheme of the ones being shared

Then someone else joins in

And the number of poets increases

 

The result is wonderful poetry

Demonstration of wit and talent and knowledge 

And conversations that are quite funny

 

The morning poetry team 

Has evolved over the years

The task has become more complex and demanding

And yet, our friends rise to the occasion everyday

 

This amazing effort 

Requires love and commitment 

One that brings us joy and delight and laughter 

One we should not take for granted
