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.

Acrostic: Fright

F R I G H T
(Halloween)


Frightful night is here
Rattling bones scare the boys
Igor shrieks girls scream
Ghosts and ghouls galore
Hades' witches in black
Travelling on their brooms

One Single Impression: Sunset (an acrostic poem)

.


At Sunset:
a checklist

Sun is brilliantly setting
Under the clouds growing dark
Night is not far away
Splendor over the water
Evening formally announced
Today has been secured
