Preoccupation

Composed 5/10/16
Description: For Day 5 of Writing 101, in which we were to write a limerick around the theme “imperfect.” After much consideration I decided to write about one of the things that plagues me constantly.

In the morning she hopped in the shower
Brushed and dressed in an hour
She arrived at her date
Not one second late
But forgot her purse by the flowers

The Journey Back

Composed 2/16/15
Description: Writing 201: Day 2. The Challenge: a journey theme in limerick form with alliteration.

Today’s poem was inspired by my snowy commute (to and from) work. Not sure I succeeded much with alliteration, but I had to change my rhyming choices so much, I didn’t much care to make more of an alliterative effort afterwards! 

Light flakes heaped soon into domes
As I nervously drove through the foam
I’d let out a breath
When the brush of my death
Occurred one minute from home
