Dr. Seuss would have been 113 years old on Thursday, March 2.
Dr. Seuss Day is a fun, creative way to remember the wit and fun of Dr. Seuss!
It is celebrated with funny photos, writing a silly rhyme, and many other ways!
The one time I joined in the annual celebration of this great poet, rhymer, and storyteller was in 2012 on my cat blog.
The first time I channeled my inner Seuss, though, was in 2008.
I wrote a poem based on Green Eggs and Ham.
I was mad at Dan Rather for some reason. :-D
When I was reminded, yesterday, that this fun day was fast approaching I was inspired to write new poetry to celebrate the day and encourage anyone who came across this blog to get in touch with their inner Seuss.
So, here you go, my latest effort to channel Dr, Seuss and to encourage creativity in others.
I AM A WRITER, A WRITER I AM!
By Kiril Kundurazieff
I am a writer.
I AM a writer.
A writer I AM!
Write poetry, yes I can! Stories, too, yes I can! How about you? Try it and see if you can!
Do I wear pajamas when I write?
I DO wear them, all day long, sometimes, when I can.
How about you? Do you wear them day or night?
Do you wear them in a house? Do you wear them as you wield your computer mouse?
Do you wear them as you watch your cat play in a box? My cats think a big one rocks!
Do you? DO you? After giving your teeth a brush? After a shower? After going potty? Don't forget to flush!
Come on fellow writers! Let your muse speak through you.
With your style, I might not agree. I DO wish you'd just create with glee!
A brain! A brain! A brain! A brain! Use what God gave you! Ignore the pain!
Say! Writing a ditty is such a lark. You can make something happy or dark!
Would you, could you, my plea please hark?
Would you, could you, ignore the pain?
Your excuses could you, would you, please not emote?
Would you, could you, in March, share what you wrote?
I do believe in you fellow writers, I must say. Believe in you! Believe in you! Night and day. Don't whine and groan, I say!
What can I Say? I LOVE writing despite few real comments and comment spam! I do!
I love to write in my pajamas, whenever I can!
I write in my work clothes, and in a coat. And I write in the nude, please take note!
I do so love to write because I can!
My talents often bring me praise and, Make no mistake I believe they will bring me glory!
Yours can for you!
I KNOW they can!
So write that poem and that story!
