I was writing drabble, when it finally came.
That all the words merged and started looking the same.
It was then I packed up and found other things to do.
But frankly a drabble is aspiring, your forced to think new.
I have quietly snuck back and try writing again.
I've sharpened my pencil, found words without strain.
Will I stay ? I'm not sure, it's a test to find why...
The word number, the rhyming....I'll give it a try.
If I go again please don't think very bad.
I'm back too early.
Life's is fickle and sometimes so sad.

    Yes please Peter... and welcome back. I really hope the ‘sometimes sad’ isn’t alluding to a recent personal tragedy 🤞 I love and have missed your lighthearted take on things. Continuez svp!
