Writer’s Quote Wednesday Writing Challenge – Obsession.

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.

β€œThe creative habit is like a drug. The particular obsession changes, but the excitement, the thrill of your creation lasts.”

-Henry Moore

 

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!
