Variability

Composed 5/4/16
Description: For the next several days, I’ll be doing WordPress’ blogging course Writing 101: A Poem a Day. Today’s theme is water and the (suggested) form is haiku. On a different note, I just noticed that this is also my 300th poem!

You make us up and
You’re just as human you can
Cradle, sate, or drown

Forgotten

Composed 2/15/15,
Description: Wow, is it the first day of Blogging U’s “Writing 201: Poetry” already? Well, I suppose it seems a bit earlier for me; you see, since I am located in the mid-west, I get these assignment a few hours before the “official” day-of. But I am definitely excited to get started!

Today’s assignment combo is water/haiku/simile, which made me happy enough! I am, of course, no stranger to haikus (e.g. a, b, c, d), and, in fact, my most popular poem ever is a haiku!

I was struck with an idea rather quickly. Likely, this was heavily inspired by the Bible study I was working on when I received the assignment email… And, for me anyway, it is still Sunday, so I guess it’s appropriate that my water-themed haiku with a simile is spiritual in nature…

The puddles ripple
In my wake but like God they
Soon forget my steps

Allure

Composed 4/25/14
Description: (Day 25 of NaPoWriMo) Busiest. Day. Ever. Test, event planning, event carryout, cleanup… And finally relaxing at Steak & Shake with friends. It was actually this last adventure that inspired today’s poem.

She swipes her fingers
Across glittering jewels it’s
Her new addiction

NSA Here I Come

Composed 9/3/13
Description: One of my first assignments of the year is to interview another person in my class and do a 90 second powerpoint presentation over them. We were encouraged to use photos from Facebook in our presentation, so I have spent much of this evening Facebook stalking some random guy. Which is just about the most fun/interesting thing ever. (PS This guy looks like a total sweetheart.)

I have discovered
My ideal job it would be
Facebook stalking folks
