May 1, 2013 Writer’s Digest

Prompt: A confused poem.

Confused
Enter
Check the clock
Plenty of time
To complete a few tasks
Look up to see
The hands spin on the clock
Grab my hat and coat
No time to waste
Hello goodbye

Up early
A full schedule
Only to see
The sun set
Rather than rise
Grab my hat and coat
No time to waste
Hello goodbye

Appointment at 11:45
The hands spin on the clock
No time to waste
Grab my hat and coat
Hello goodbye
…wrong day

Pour the tea
In my coffee cup
No lemon
No sugar
Just a pinch of salt
No time to sip the day away
Grab my hat and coat
Hello goodbye
No time to waste
Take a raincheck
For another day

Note: Sometime it is hard to tell if we are coming or going. We plan out the day, set goals. Interruptions too numerous to count. The day passes nothing checked off the list.
