April 2, 2017   Poetry Prompt #2 – patience

I
learned it in line
at the post office

You
need it for work
need it for family

Axel Rose
sang about it

If I can’t
have you right now,
I’ll wait here.

April 3, 2017  Poetry Prompt #3 – Write about your father or father figure

I
once gave
Dad
a poem
for
Father’s Day
when I was
younger

I
once gave
Dad
writing on green paper
for
Father’s Day
when I was
younger

I liked
that song
Father Figure
when it came out
when I was
younger

 

The poem “The Writer” by Richard Wilbur

Erica Jong day :)

It’s my favorite day of National Poetry month. It’s Erica Jong Day!  Erica started out writing poetry before she wrote Fear of Flying.

I had Fruits and Vegetables in my shaking hands as I talked to her on the phone yesterday.
