Sort of: a PAD Chapbook Challenge: Day 3

Sort of
Sort of a slow day, he could tell
he stayed in bed till almost nine
coffee in the pot getting stale
was still hot he teased his senses

Awake enough to eat a bite
what would it be? a hard boiled egg
couple pieces leftover ham
and half a slice of toast with jam

Glass of juice completed his meal
sort of

The above is a better...........
breakfast that he could
.........make on a better day...........

I wrote this for a 2011 November PAD Chapbook Challenge: Day 3 prompt, to write a poem beginning “sort of”. But the site below did not like my cookies so I did not register my poem with them. Their loss, perhaps.

On July 18, 2017, I linked this ditty in recognition their sixth year anniversary to "The Imaginary Garden with Real Toads",

Makes me hungry reading this. It is one of those days here. I could just curl up with a hot cup of tea and await the sun to come shining through. If it takes two days who cares? Ihave a good book going. Too bad I have to work and spoil the image.

I'm trying to remember the last time I stayed in bed till almost nine!! I like the poem; too bad you had trouble registering it; I'm sure more would have enjoyed the chance of reading it.

(thanks for your kind comment; the pastor did of course mention God; he preached from 1 Kings 12:3-11, the story of Rehoboam. I too pray, LOL I prayed so much about this move, yet we are here......prayers are always appreciated; I know God hears them all and I know he answers in his perfect timing/his perfect will. There are so many other things going on with this move/situation; it would take a novel to write it all, but it was one thing I was never content about from day one, but I'm sure hubby decided first without putting lots of prayer into this; anyway, prayers are great, so much appreciated!; thanks!)

I like slow days when I can stay in bed until nine.
