Poem-a-Thon, Day Six

My day six entry for the City of Refuge Poem-a-Thon. I decided today to follow their prompt which suggested using rhyme in some way. I have a feeling I will add more to this later, but for now I’m calling it done enough.

Things I Am Choosing to Ignore

The widening crack in the bathroom wall
The box of “decluttered” items in my entry hall

The plan I made for this day last night
The opportunity to make that right

The distance between my heart and head
The number of books on my list “to be read”

The conspiracy theories of a stranger
A growing sense of impending danger

Criticism from people who have no clue
And the agendas they want to pursue

I live in Missouri, a more beautiful place than many realize. I love writing, reading, walking, bicycling, and making lists. I’ve written poetry since I was seven. A few years ago I branched out into short fiction and memoir pieces. I also perpetually have a novel in progress. My brain pursues ideas at a brisk pace, wandering all over the map. This blog represents one of my efforts to keep up with it.
