Poems that pursue the horizon from past to present and poems created for NaPoWriMo 2017
|"Monday’s child is fair of face";
"Monday, Monday, can’t trust that day!"
Monday sayings fill our space,
"It’s just another manic Monday!"
Transitional day is Monday;
Most dread the start of another week.
Takes us to work away from play;
It’s fun on restful Sunday we seek
There’s too much paper on my desk,
A pile of bills to go through;
Taxes to finish and poems to write,
Laundry and vacuuming too.
A sick dog in the family and
mucky relationship woes;
Post-Easter food fatigue – ('cept
macaroons) – I love those!
Cards to write to family
far away, and friends;
Did I mention laundry?
Yes - oh it never ends!
And my never-ending job search;
Must polish up my resume.
I have no hope though that
Anyone will hire me today.
Monday starts the week’s activity-
Procrastination is my preferred
