I had a great visit with a retired doctor last week who shared that, as a writer, she aims to write a poem a day. I dedicate this one to Dr. Nordgren.
A poem a day is an order
Prescribed by a Doctor of Parlance,
To calm all my mental disorder
By righting my inner imbalance.
If you skip one, a backlog will set in;
You feel creepy words crawling on your skin.
So pull out your tablet and watch how,
The brain starts to churn with a low growl
And delights the heart with this cure called verse,
Whose effects are never adverse!

it’s good to have friends
on who one can depend
to offer these cures
when the mind starts to blur
and life sends us over the bend.
haha, how are you able to be funny even while hanging onto the edge of life’s cliff by your finger nails??? You are amazing
I like it!! It sounds like something you could read out loud to your boys! I can see it evolving into a Dr. Seuss-ish type poem too!!
