I hope you are not confused by the title of this post. It is simply the name of the weekly blogging event I am participating in, and the title of my poem which will appear therein.
I did not mean to imply that I was participating in Poetry Friday for the first time. This, in fact, is my 4th appearance in as many weeks. Prior to that, I was an irregular reader of some of the entries through links to some of the other poetry blogs I follow. My blog is not a poetry blog as such, it is more a mixed bag of miscellany in the shape of a blog. It is true that I am certainly on a poetry kick these days. While this is not the first time I have posted on Poetry Friday, this is the first poem I have written specifically with this blogging event in mind.
I really enjoy these blogging events. Back when I was homeschooling my kids, and this blog was called Home School Dad, I participated in weekly blogging events called Three Things Thursday, Works for me Wednesday, Wordless Wednesday, and my favorite the Carnival of Homeschooling. Some of my favorite posts in my 13 + years of blogging were when I hosted the aforementioned carnival.
In a few months, I will be hosting one of the Poetry Friday's which I am very excited about and have already begun drafting. One thing I will put an end to, at least for the week I host it, is this whole Poetry Friday on a Thursday thing. This is very typical of all the blogging events I've ever participated in. If you want to be one of the first posts on the Linky list, and who doesn't?, you need to post the day before. Now I must ask you my fellow existentialists, is it really Poetry Friday when you post it on Pre-Poetry Thursday?
Therefore, When I host in August, my post will drop at 11 p.m central time on Thursday Night. That's because it will be Friday in New York City and if that's good enough for New Year's Rocking Eve it's good enough for me.
I believe that's more than enough pre-amble/rant. Here is my poem for the week ...
For The First Time
Into the middle
Of two movies
They walk into yours
You walk into theirs
You both walk into
What could be
The pivotal scene
Of your lives
