Monday WRites 80


[image from google dot com]

BRAND NEW
Tell me Monday
Are you beginning
Are you playing second fiddle
Do you even care

Says Monday:
Like it or not here i come
With my blues
My weekend hang overs
And unfinished homework

Tardy last minute finishers
Fresh spruce starters
Here we-go-again yawners
All this, and more I am

Monday -
Of the "new" work week
Of the "new" school week
Sunday's rest is over!

  1. Wonderful, Gillena. You followed your form poem, Emily’s ‘Answer July’, very nicely. It was as very good idea.
    I hadn't realized that you are "in school". Teaching or studying? Or in your "poet's" muse realm" A specialty?

      Glad some issues in the poem sparked your interest Jim

  3. Oh yes, Monday is usually slow and bears the hangover of a long and fabulous weekend! Beautifully executed.

  5. I remember that 'I don't like Mondays' feeling. Now I'm retired I just say, 'Bring it on!' I love your take on the Dickinson poem, Gillena!
