Days gone by…

It’s 8AM and the alarm is blaring
but hear it I do not
My eyes blink open and are staring
it is now 10 o’clock
Hardly time to brush the dust
from my sleepy eyes
In an hour leave I must
Let’s go, get up, arise!
Squeeze my pants over the buns
no time for a pose
Can’t wear sneakers so grab the ones
that hurt my pinky toes!
Wash face, brush teeth, ponytail
pet cat, and kiss my beau.
Grab my lunch and hit the trail
no time for moving slow
Drive in traffic, honk at cars
scream that’s not a LANE!
Frustrations got me seeing stars
driving is a pain
Get to work and circle block
until a space I find
Must punch in by 1 o’clock
some cuss words cross my mind
They want books, staplers, computers
and rooms to study in
I also point them to the tutors
and do it all with a grin
The printers either have a jam
or paper they are out
They open and close them with a BAM!
I stare over with a pout
Counting five, six, seven, eight
hours do go by
Make sure all the books are straight
Maybe tomorrow I’ll have Thai
Punch out the day is finally done
Quick run to the car!
Pass the others one-by-one
I can’t wait to take off this bra!
Park and open up the door
Shoes come off fast
Fall into the arms of my amour
Good to be home at last!
Three weeks flew by I forgot to blog
Give up I thought I must
Forget it! No! Push away the smog
In my readers I must trust

Burning

Burning

It is a burning fire
In the pit of my gut
Will not bow to a crier
Now I’m stuck in a rut

Feeling scared alone
A stranger among many
Throwing chips down for one
Who wouldn’t loan you a penny

The fire is growing
With every daily addition
My energy is flowing
To fight this transition

 

Together

Together

Lately my life
feels like a dream
Is it all real?
Are we really a team?
You and I
together forever
Under one roof
In our new endeavor
Long gone are the days
my heart did roam
I will strive to make
this house our home

Let’s Measure: A nursery rhyme!

Let’s Measure: A nursery rhyme!

The eighth challenge was a bit of a toughie. You had to make a new version, or in my case and expansion, of a nursery rhyme. Going off yesterday’s post about the swimsuits, I hit google to find nursery rhymes that deal with the body. I found one that had to do with measuring and I added the second paragraph myself. Let me know what you think! Do I have a future as a nursery rhyme writer?!?

It’s got to be Supernatural!

Today I will be completing two of the 10 challenges due to my crazy work schedule. I have been planning planning planning for a graduation awards ceremony but today I have a quite moment to write. The first challenge is to interlink a poem, a word, and a photo. Continue reading

A tribute to my commute

A tribute to my commute

For the fourth day of the challenge I interpreted the haiku with my feelings about my commute to work. I’m not a fan of the trains and buses but especially when they get crowded! I enjoy the decompression of the weekends 🙂 Continue reading
