Seven Days

Written for:  Poetic Asides November 2017 Chapbook Challenge – Day 7
Two-for-Tuesday – Write a days of the week poem and/or days of the weak poem.

Days of the Week

On Sundays, shimmering rays of sun slant through slats of window blinds.
On Mondays, melancholy music meanders through my mind.
On Tuesdays, tubular bells tamper my tears.
On Wednesdays, woebegone waifs wish at store windows.
On Thursdays, thick-necked thugs are thwarted by Tom Thumb.
On Fridays, frisky kittens frolic free from fear.
On Saturdays, statuesque stunners are draped in satin sheaths.

Days of The Weak

Welcomes wither
on the vine
as the country’s
grapes sour,
and shrivel
in a new vineyard
of vitriol.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
