It is Ronovan’s turn to suggest the prompt this week and he has come up with ‘Adventure’ for his and Colleen’s Writer’s Quote Writing Challenge Prompt. This quote seemed just perfect for where I was thinking of going this week with it. I have decided to write my poem about the Blogger’s Bash.
Every new friend is a new adventure…the start of more memories
– Patrick Lindsay
This weekend I went on an adventure
I was determined to do it this year
Last time I was so regretful
That I let myself succumb to my fears.
My family didn’t think I would do it
Too many obstacles in my way
Anxiety, worries and shyness
Were not going to ruin my day!
Hubby dropped me off at the station
And I tentatively boarded the train
Despite getting all hot and bothered
I focused on what was my aim!
Ritu was there on the platform
With a huge smile on her face
Then off we went to meet Erika
Then had a coffee someplace!
Rich was not far behind us
The Blogily was now complete
We hadn’t got to the Bash yet
There were other bloggers to meet!
My nerves were now so much better
As we found our way to the pub
We met all of the committee
And Geoff had cooked up some grub!
Cakes of all kinds of flavours
He catered to every taste
I tried a bit of each one though
I couldn’t have them going to waste!
Hugh was doing the filming
And talking to every guest
Sacha was rocking her Louboutin’s
Definitely dressed to impress!
Ali was friendly and lovely
And welcomed us all with a smile
I was so pleased I had made it
I knew it would be so worthwhile
There were so many others present
Really there were quite a few
Many were faces I recognised
And I managed to chat with some of them too.
It was certainly a day to remember
I ‘m so glad I conquered my fear
And now I know I can do it
I can’t wait for this time next year!
