Last year I wrote a Slice of Life of my day using some tiny poetry forms. I remembered it this morning, and decided to try it again, so here is a tiny timeline of my day yesterday using septercets–a poetry form of three lines, each with seven syllables.
Alarm rings, but hubby sleeps
Stumble around finding clothes
Make a cup of tea to go
Pick up my sister and dogs
Drop them at the dog-sitters
Head out for her appointments
Read in the parking structure
The Confession by Grisham
A satisfactory end
At last, found Sherman’s Deli
Ordered corned beef hash, eggs, and
bagel with cream cheese to share.
Trader Joe’s, Michael’s, Target
Shopping time before the next
doctor’s appointment for her
No Internet, now no book
Enjoyed the breeze and the birds
and played FreeCell on my phone
Costco — the hundred dollar
store is now, the more-than-a-
hundred store. Samples for lunch.
Keith put the battery in
Lori’s pickup, which is why
she hadn’t driven herself
At last, sanded and added
the first coat of varnish to
my renovated table
Curled up on my half of
loveseat and slept, (rare for me)
Probably snoring occurred
Wrote a post: White Women book
giveaway. (Oh, no!! Too late!!)
Free book club still open, though
Couldn’t think of a new post,
so I doom-scrolled. What is wrong
with our country? Racism!
Went to sleep, thinking too much,
I should have read, not listened
to all the bias out there.
I am participating in the March Slice of Life Challenge: A slice a day for all of March. Thank you, Two Writing Teachers!
