Hello there poetry pals!
It’s Day Seven of NanoPoblano AKA National Blog Posting Month (but with a group of colourful individuals teaming up as Cheer Peppers of many different textures and flavours!) and I’m back with yet another video session to tantalise your eyes.
Check out the Facebook Live performance of my latest poem.
Today I was inspired by a napowrimo.net prompt regarding luck and fortuity to write this little beauty.
If you would like another alternative prompt to help you write, you could always try either OctPoWriMo 2017 or another one from Robert Lee Brewer at Writers Digest who has some “Two For Tuesday” action going on (sadly not pizza-pie, just pizza prompts…without the pizza):-
And here is my poem in written form, just in case videos are not your thing and you prefer to jam to the words instead. Mmmmmm jam 😉

“The Nature And Essence Of Fortune” by David Ellis
There is only certainty in uncertainty
Kingdoms sink from the weight of their own bones
At odds with the truth
The glory of being honest
To be safe or to hug an ambitious breeze
The spirit of equality
Acceptance of indulgence
The burden of proof on one’s own shoulders
Warped are rewards that favour the wicked
Therefore, why not stand as a symbol for morality to others?
To think for ourselves feeds knowledge and beliefs
Senses invoking familiar spirits in our time of need
Complexity is not a reason to play the game
Rather than cause something to happen
Adapt, flow, keep those who are vulnerable from harm
We should try not to resist inevitable change
Unless it is itself blind to justice
Hopes and dreams of love personified
Both devil and angel
The nature and essence of fortune
Still want more? I have also collated some more posts from fellow Cheer Peppers for their Day Seven posts for you to taste all of the sumptuous pepper flavours that there are to offer 🙂
