Sunday Muse #140, 2020 ending and Chrissa challenges us for our in-between poems. My plethora of scattered thoughts seem to fit the year just past, scribbled in my bedside notebook of midnight epiphanies. Happy New Year! Submitted December 26, 2020.
2020, year in review
what a dreadful, mixed-up stew
tumbling thoughts in a soup tureen
isms and schisms, and in between
pollywogs, goldfish and carp
the dulcet tones of a distant harp
frosted windows and naked trees
butterflies and honey bees
sound of a jet flight overhead
scrambled words from a book I’ve read
I’d like to meet a chimney sweep
why oh why can’t I get to sleep.
