Morning Cheer

Written for:  dVerse Poet’s Pub:  Quadrille #70-“Poems of Good Cheer”  (posted by WhimsyGizmo)
“Cheer. Cheering. Cheerful. Cheerleader. Cheer us up in exactly 44 words. Or give your poem a twist that goes dark, but be sure to get some form of the word cheer in there somewhere. You can use any form of the word, and you can even play with hyphens and such to get creative, but some form of the word cheer should be in your poem.”

In the morning,
cheerful people
annoyed her. Half-
awake, sans any coffee
as yet, and in
an office.
Who could be cheerful,
except cheerleaders,
but that is their job.
Stay home, have a
large mug of coffee,
put your feet up,
and sigh . . . cheerfully.

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.
