the title is 3 lines, the poem is 4

Post  Karen on Wed Jun 28, 2017 9:29 am

Trolling my folders for a reading next week. I have not written anything worthy in 2017, but I did write a poem with the short title Drooling on the Linoleum.  Strangely, I feel better about myself.

Drooling on the Linoleum While Attempting to
     Empty the Dish Drainer When Brushing My Teeth
     (A Prayer About Multi-tasking)

Now I stand me up to brush.
I pray, O Lord, I do not rush
nor fret o’er bridge until I cross.
Let me be still, Lord, while I floss.

I enjoyed the experience.  Inspection caused me to stop at "cross" but not the first read.

I want to write a humorous verse by the morning.

One of your gifts

is humor.  It plays out in your poetry from time to time.  Karen, it is funny that your title is as long as your poem.  (Well, almost.)  Overwhelming to do 3 things at once.  Got it.   : )  Hang in there. . .  I don't know a writer who doesn't struggle. . . .with writing.
A play on Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep.  We all know it.  Easy to follow.  Images, clear.  Thank you for sharing with us.

Title In Three Lines

Post  Dewell H. Byrd on Fri Jun 30, 2017 8:32 pm

Fun stuff... comes at you quick then it is gone.

Is it possible that we fool ourselves thinking we are
multitasking while our brain is actually dealing with only
one thing at a time... QUICKLY?

Sometimes it is the little things like this poem
that keep us sharp.  Write On, Dewell.
