I am taking part in Ronovan and Colleen’s Writers Quote Wednesday Challenge, and this week we have been given ‘obsession’ as our prompt word.
I felt that the following quote by sculptor, Henry Moore, pretty much sums up how I feel, and will be the subject of my poem.
“The creative habit is like a drug. The particular obsession changes, but the excitement, the thrill of your creation lasts.”
I have a bit of a problem
That I really ought to confess
Whenever I find a new hobby
I suddenly start to obsess!
First of all, it was sewing
I spent loads of money on that
But sadly, most of my creations
Were nothing better than tat!
I also get caught up in knitting
Stockpiling mountains of wool
With so many projects unfinished
I really am such a fool!
I had a go at card making
Buying up lots of supplies
I made a card for my daughter
After five or six tries!
And then I discovered blogging
As a way to cope with depression
I have slowly formed an addiction
And have yet another obsession!
