NaPoWriMo

The month started strong
with poetry and song
then I got too busy
really almost dizzy
with obligations
to others
the relegation
of mothers’
needs to the backseat
they all suck my teat
like I’ve got an endless supply
of energy and time
and I don’t know why
I wrote this rhyme
except now the month is through
and I wrote this for me, not you.

Island Greens on Whidbey Island. Has nothing to do with the poem.

#NaPoWriMo 2017, poem 22

I tried a variant on the haiku form…multiple haiku with the same first two lines and different third lines.

Koi pond full of fish

Cute flippers, whiskers, mustache

I want to taste them

Koi pond full of fish

Cute flippers, whiskers, mustache

They sure look meaty

Koi pond full of fish

Cute flippers, whiskers, mustache

Google: no recipes

Koi pond full of fish

Cute flippers, whiskers, mustache

Seems they taste real bad

Koi pond full of fish

Cute flippers, whiskers, mustache

So nice to look at

Koi pond full of fish

Cute flippers, whiskers, mustache

Pretty, lovely fish
