Poem-a-Day ~ Tautogram

Tabloids terrible tale tell
Texas trainwreck turmoil
Taxi’s transmission thundering trouble
Torrid temperatures, trees topple
Transportation tie-up
Tourists’ tempers tested
Tired toddler throws tantrum
Tension toll turn-about transformation
Thanks to Taco Tuesday’s terrific team


Hello October
Thankful temperatures cooler
Low humidity – air fresher, cleaner
Less traffic, super walking weather
Apple crisp, apple pies, cider
Homemakers turn decorators
Handmade decor, fairs crafters
Halloween costume spooksters
Trick-or-Treaters, candy seekers
Carved pumpkins Jack-o-Lanterns
Various pots colorful floral Mums
Fall foliage, traveler’s favorite season
Welcome Autumn 

Poem-a-Day ~ Hobby

Free Verse: 

Fabric rectangles, fabric squares
Seamstress cautious rotary cuts
Progress begins fasten together
Quarter inch seams requirement
Several hours afternoon session
Picture portrays chosen pattern 
Fabric rectangles, fabric squares
Log cabin quilt accomplishment

Why Didn’t I Get It Right??

gallon water day
beneficial one 
health wise
counted bottles eight
goal complete erroneous
1-2-8 ounces gallon

Yesterday I thought this was a good idea
Small 8-ounce bottles H2o lined up for day
I didn’t include water used for cups of tea
Rather figured better to count plain water
I thought this goal seemed a bit too easy
Surprise to learn I’d met my goal halfway
As one gallon of water contains 128 ounces
How could I have forgotten the calculations
Quite a light bulb moment for me this morn
I guess I’ll have to settle for one half the goal.

Camp NaNoWriMo

Day 1 of a new mini goal set in motion.

I thought it would be a fun exercise to write a poem-a-day.

Mid-afternoon last day of June search notebooks underway

 Registration info found; access left me with feeling of dismay 

Before my eyes the unfinished romance novel “Aussie Courier”

Left incomplete, question self ‘why’ can’t think a valid answer

Hopeful computer word program has a printout calendar avail

Visionary board – poetess creations’ wish display without fail

Time now gal learning enjoying and writing various forms poetry 

Detour take ‘nanowrimo’ persona transformation, subsequently.

Poem-a-Day: Ghazal ~ Fear

Dysfunctional childhood life disguised
Abandonment, worse fear realized

Summer months temperature extremes
Farmers’ crops ruin, worse fear realized

College freshmen choose party nightly
Results mid-terms, worse fear realized

Consequence cell phone constant habits
Battery drained; worse fear realized

Interruptions day’s preparedness
Failure June post, worse fear realized
