2014 Poem a Day: 6

Dark bare tree,

Brown octagonal table with blue umbrella,

Broken Red brick patio,

Grass changing from yellow to green,

Still, lonely and desolate

Neglected and awaiting


From NaPoWriMo: Take a good look outside your window. Spend a minute or so jotting down all the nouns you see outside. Tree. Car. Bus. Dog. Then spend a minute or so writing down all the colors you see. Finally, think about taking place outside. Is the wind blowing? “Blow.” Is someone walking their dog? “Walk.” Spend a minute or so writing down these verbs. Now you’ve got a whole list of words from which to build a poem, mixing and matching as you go. Happy writing!

The Bathroom, by my little guy

A cup, a door, water, mommy, computer, bras, mirror, closet

Brown, white, tan, black, orange, red, green and purple

moving, talking, daddy on his ipad, mommy on the computer, I’m in the tub

doing the disco

drip drip drip, drip drip drip, squeak squeak, quick, we better get out of here…
