Day 23 Slice of Life – Me

Today’s inspiration came from Margaret Simon. Lanny Ball shared it on today’s Slice of Life post. I’m glad I ventured over to Louisiana to take Margaret’s challenge. I wrote a poem about me, inspired by her sweet “Peep Eye” poem in Bayou Song: Creative Explorations of the South Louisiana Landscape.

Me

Rapid-talking
Same for walking

Cookie-baking
Norm-breaking

Sometimes-writing
Always-delighting

All-the-games-playing
Attention-straying

Dinner-cooking
Silver-lining-looking

Hand-soaping
Ever-hoping

Dream-raising
God-praising

Just Me
Trying to be
