Returning for year nine of writing daily in March with my Slice of Life writer friends! Check out Two Writing Teachers for more slices of life occurring every day in March.
Head over to Sloth Reads for this
week's roundup of poetic goodness.
Thanks, Rebecca for hosting this week.
What I Want Is
What I want is
to read the books
I want to read
A porch swing squeaks as
my feet push to and fro, keeping
Summer time. A mountain of books
surrounds the swing, stacks
lean precariously close, my toes
push to and fro, keeping
Summer time. On the forward swing I
pluck the chosen, clasping one
in each hand,
book 19, book 20.

I have an idea to make a quartet of "What I Want Is" poems, featuring a different season in each poem. I wonder what I'll want in fall, winter, and spring.
