PROMPT #286 – CONNECTION

It is said we are all interconnected. Each person’s life touches others in very profound ways whether we are aware or not. We are alive. We breathe in and out. Within every inhalation we make are molecules of Hitler, Manson and Stalin. In the same breath are particles of Buddha, Mother Theresa and Jesus Christ. We are all one. It’s surreal that we speak of connection while we are practicing “social distancing” due to the coronavirus (COVID-19), but our solidarity will pull us through. Stay safe, stay strong and take care of yourselves. Write a poem of connection.

I miss you…

You look perfectly clean
I don’t understand
why COVID-19
picked your bod to land.

I hope you get better
I want to see you
I can’t stand the distance
more than a day or two.

I pray you are well
more sooner than late
This sickness that spreads
Is sickness I hate.

Please come back real soon
I need you a lot
I’ll wait for you here
right in this same spot.

FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION – HOW DID I GET HERE?

SOCK P.O.V – YOU ARE A CLEAN SOCK MISTAKENLY PLACED IN A HAMPER. WRITE THIS, OR WRITE FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF ITS MATE HAVING ABANDONMENT ISSUES!

Hello? Hello?
Where did you go? 
I am still clean,
all washed I mean.

Why am I here
only part of a pair?
What is the odor
Is that the front loader?

Help me get out
or I will shout.
Give me a foot
Don’t leave me put.

This really stinks,
my pal-sock thinks.
He’ll find me soon
here like a cocoon.

I have to get found
what is that sound?
Here comes the owner
No longer a loner!

Creepy Elf Limerick

INFORM POET – LIMERICK https://poeticbloomings2.wordpress.com/

Today we get playful. Once again we work the Limerick. The nonsensical feel of these ditties remain to touch a heart, a head or funny bone.

Reminder: Five lines.

First, second and fifth lines rhyme(A).

Lines three and four are also linked (B).

The scheme A,A,B,B,A.

Get gaudy, bawdy, raucous, nauseous, cautious, rambunctious or thoughtful. Just give this awful rhyme some of your time. You may be surprised by the results!
