Here we are on the last day of “Write-A-Poem-A-Day” April and I have managed, once again, to survive. But…
Next April I’ll Be Sleeping In.
I swear to God, a year ago I swore
(I might have sworn to God for all I know)
I’d never waste another precious April
doing what I’ve done again this month.
I don’t know what I’m doing anymore;
don’t know why I bother, or why you
bother stopping by to see; I really don’t.
It’s all such a royal painful waste of time.
I’ll tell you this much, though: I hereby
swear the First of May will find me changed,
will find me resting on my April laurels and
(even next year) still in bed. I swear to God.
Big thanks to Cate at Show My Face for hosting Six Word Saturday. A Sincere standing ovation to Rob Kistner, generous mastermind behind Writer’s Island for letting us all congregate on his beach for the month; not to mention all the other poetry prompt sites (too numerous to mention here) that helped those of us who flagged find their muses.
BUT MOST OF ALL: My deep and heartfelt thanks to all those who were kind enough to spend a few minutes each day reading here, and especially for your very kind and encouraging responses to my work. THANK YOU, THANK YOU. THANK YOU.
