Hey Gang,
         where's the most unusual place you've written a poem?

hmmmmmm I don't think it's really unusual but most of my friends and family do ... We have a old family cemetery on our property with ancestors buried there from the 1800's it is wher I go to think  to be alone to write to dream ... it's so peaceful and beautiful there

I've written in my car, in the parking lot during the summer (110 degrees!)....in the bathroom (don't ask!)....at work (don't tell!)...at most eating establishments....and the strangest place of all...in my head!

Sven~
What an unusual question ...
and boy, oh boy ... have I got
some unusual answers.

As a young mother packing lunches for my children in the evenings .. I would write short poems on the banana skins for them to find the next day.  Also on the napkins in their lunch boxes.

On the leaves of Magnolia blossoms for someone to find upon the tree.
The petals of the gardenia also lend themselves to the wield of my poetic pen.

And once on a boulder high upon a mountain in Tennessee, I etched a poem that remains there to this day.  And that was fourteen years ago !

Well, just remember ... you asked !

Wow  MArge would have never thought of the banana skins as a place to write and doesn't really seem all that wierd at all just very creative  

 Mystical being
which makes ink flow
Surround me in
your incandescent glow
Fill my brain with
thoughts and rhyme
As I try to capture
but a moment in time

I used to do this thing for every school play I was in where I'd write a short poem or a few words on the back of this old, forgotten piece of scenery (generally used to pile stuff on) that I used to hide behind backstage during performances. This continued for 4 plays (my freshman and sophomore years) until this year, my junior year, when we cleaned out the entire backstage area - which had never ever happened before, it was like going through an old attic! - and before I thought of it someone had already thrown my masterpiece away! It was sad, but maybe it meant something, as those poems usually weren't very happy because for three of those four plays I was very depressed, and now I'm out of that depression. Maybe it was a kind of cleansing.

Like Marge I use to find things to write on for my kids.
But the most unusal-hhmm- I use to slip pieces of poetry into peoples newspapers.
Not only did the read current affairs they read a little part of me. I just hope it brought smiles to their faces.

Sitting on the side of the road - waiting for a tow-truck to come and retrieve me and my flaming car - after the police, fire department, and curiosity seekers left...
