Day 27 Late-Season Snow #NaPoWriMo

Thaddeus, caked with snow
Late Season Snowfall


Prompt: “Take one of your poems and, in three places, insert a parenthetical comment…” I used only this much of the prompt found at Cuyahoga County Public Library website.

late-spring storm
{by now, I shouldn’t feel surprise}
snow on puppy legs…face…tail
{how did he get snow plastered THERE?}
don’t sit in my lap!
{ah, well! there’s towels}

November 15 Poem of the Day: Weighed in a balance

I am slowly filling in the poems for the days I missed during November’s poem-a-day activities.

Prompt for 15 November 2018 from NaHaiWriMo: weight

Weeds and Dry Ground

the weight of the evidence suggests no
investment in long-term bonds

natural sciences, in practice,
have the final vote
