National Poetry Month Day 29: April 29,2020

Hello everyone! It’s the second-to-last day of the poem-a-day challenge!!! I can’t believe I’ve almost made it to the end! Today’s word is “Slimy,” which got me thinking about car salesmen, which got me thinking about cars, which got me thinking about my minivan and how minivans often get a bad rap and then I wondered how the minivan might feel about someone who is less than happy about having one. (I happen to LOVE my minivan –and I’m not afraid to say it!) Anyway, all of that brain goop turned into this poem. Hope you enjoy it!

National Poetry Month Day 28: April 28, 2020

It’s Day 28 of the poem-a-day challenge and BOY am I feeling the strain! Today’s word is “discretion.” I was having MAJOR trouble coming up with something to write about, so I figured, why not just write about my truth? Thanks for reading! 🙂

National Poetry Month Day 25: April 25, 2020

Hi Everyone! Welcome to day 25 of the poem-a-day challenge! Today I was given the word “Escape” as my challenge word. As you may have noticed through some of my poems, I have a love-hate relationship with sweets (mostly love). Thanks for reading!

National Poetry Month Day 24: April 24, 2020

Heading into the home stretch of the poem-a-day challenge… Today’s word is “Erase” but I took some creative liberty and changed it to “Erased” because, well, it worked better and I’m allowed. 🙂 I was feeling a little “glass-half-full”-ish today, so I thought I’d share my positive outlook. Better to relish in it today, as you never know what emotions tomorrow will bring. Hope you enjoy.

National Poetry Month Day 22: April 22,2020

Hello everyone! Welcome to day 22 of the poem-a-day challenge! Whoa man, today’s word, “malfunction,” seriously gave me trouble (with a capital “T”! and that rhymes with “P” and that stands for… I could not think of ANYTHING to write about this dang word!!) Anyway, this was the best I could come up with. You win some, you lose some, right?!

National Poetry Month Day 21: April 21, 2020

It’s day 21 of the poem-a-day challenge! Today I was given the word “Frumpy,” which is a word that, as it so happens, describes me perfectly these days. Indeed, I made the mistake of getting on the scale this morning, so feeling it a little EXTRA today. I thought maybe some of you could relate. Thanks again for reading and for your continued support. 🙂

National Poetry Month Day 20: April 20,2020

Wow, I made it for 20 days with this poem-a-day challenge! Who would’ve thought?! After yesterday’s poem, full of deep, dark, depressing thoughts, I ended up going the total opposite direction with today’s poem. Today’s challenge word is “Circumstance.” I hope this brings a little fun to your day. Enjoy! 🙂
