Can You Say Go Away?


The a to z,
Or between for me,
Has surely been done.
Survive its run?

Look at you.
Writing came due.
Wasn't that grand?
Words in hand.

Fact or fiction.
Pics or depiction.
All were there,
With posts to spare.

Except the spammers.
Hit them with hammers.
Give a "Great Whack!"
After the smack.

What's that you ask?
The insecure task?
Yeah, I'm getting there.
No need to blare.

Well maybe there is.
Blare at such biz.
Give a go away.
Damn, still in the fray.

But you wrote a month long.
Is that really wrong?
Maybe wasn't a book.
But you wrote at your nook.

Learned a thing or two too.
If you went to many a zoo.
Not just a stick in the mud.
 Hiding away like a C.H.U.D.

Writing and learning,
Even comment returning.
Wow, you got stuff done.
Like how that was spun?

And if you didn't do the a to z,
Or a between like little old me,
Then you still did something.
Sleeping is needed as well for words to spring.

Did you follow the cat? Something was still done where you're at. That insecurity can go take a hike. Sometimes better to get a spare than a strike. At least something was done and you learned and had some fun. Maybe met a new blogging mass. So stay secure like my little rhyming ass.

Experience spring, have a fling.

  5. Sorry to say I didn't go on a writing spree
    took a much needed rest at my sea
    to the beach wiggling my toes in the surf
    then to the mountains where wings unfurled

  7. Well done with the A-Z. We were just lazy and didn't do it. What cat wants to worry about words and letters. Have a great day Pat.

  8. I have never done an A-Z. Might get to it some time in the future. Maybe next year.

    I just don't know how you guys can do so much!

  9. Oh, gosh, me and the A to Z failed big time. Just too much on my plate. Need to move it to a less busy month - is there such a thing? Spring time is just too busy a time, maybe, June - that's a quiet slow time, right??
    Probably not. Oh well, it is what it is!
    Back to work!
    Have a great IWSG Day!

  16. I like you last comment about how it's sometimes better to make a spare than a strike. Well, I always loved to bowl a lot of strikes, but the spares were more challenging, and just as satisfying to convert. Anything but a split, which is what I did from the blogosphere for the month of April. The A-Z challenge is fun, and I enjoyed it the one time I participated, but I honestly don't know if I'll ever do it again. Devoting the month to writing works out really well for me. Then again, if I could do a RERUN of my first A-Z posts... HA!

    1. Yep, can be more challenging indeed
      Those splits suck when they take seed
      But they can be beat too

  25. I didn't participate in the A to Z this year, and you probably recall my blog post explaining why. But at least I was able to keep up with all the A to Z folks who I regularly follow, even if I didn't comment on every single post.

  31. I never doubted that you would finish the A to Z Challenge, Pat! In fact, I'm sure that you finished the series at least a year ago. I have to go back and read the last few ~ had some connectivity issues at my hotel, but I'm back in business now. Take care, my rhyming friend!

  35. Skipped the A-Z this year, after remembering all the work and time involved last year...

    Talking about spring, we just flew from the West to the East Coast in the US and are now seeing spring evolve again in blossoms and flowers. Two springs this year. If only it would get warmer! Liesbet @ Roaming About – A Life Less Ordinary (May co-host)
