Little Things Big Things

Day 9 NaPoWriMo/GloPoWriMo the prompt is about little things meeting big things. I wrote this haiku as a writing warm up.


Dust motes Blue Danubing

An afternoon tea dance

Sunshine chiffon swirl

Then I carried on some  and woke up my husband and said, “Listen to this poem I just wrote.” And he rolled over, listening, then sleepily smiled and said, “Make us a cup of tea?” And I did, quite happily.

The Little Things

Locating the lost keyring

without smirking

Exclaiming how the meal prepared

is art on a plate


he likes eating my cake

He forgives the cat scratch

even as he’s threatening to scud its ass

He takes exercise

and watches his diet

Determined to outlast me

so ultimately

I will not be

the one left
