Sleep Interrupted

Tuesday Poetics with Lillian –
what are your dreams made of?

Seven-year olds are wise in the way of dreams –
which shows to avoid too near bedtime
In order to dodge sketchy dreams.

Which ones could lead to full-blown nightmares.
Shows that feature mummies or yetis
are at the top of the list, along with anything that dies.


Only shows that make you laugh are allowed.
I should have heeded the warnings.

Rhythm Band

2017 November PAD Chapbook Challenge: Day 3
Write a triangle poem

~
Rhythm Band

the triangle just
kind of dangles from
a piece of string

most children do not choose
it from the box of
noise making instruments

it makes a tiny tingling sound
a merry jingling sound
a not too loud sound

it does not clang
like the cymbals or
rattle like maracas

it does not call
attention to itself
like the drums

but there is always one
the quiet one, the shy one
who loves the magic

of the triangle

Sleeping Over

Sleeping Over

Who giggled the hardest
When we told goofy jokes
Ate all the popcorn
And drank all the Coke

Who turned on the flashlight
To tell scary stories
Then heard heavy footsteps
And smelled something gory

Who screamed the loudest
Hid under the bed
Eyes shut and ears covered
Pillow over your head

Who fell asleep first
Sleeping bag on the floor
I’ll keep your secret
‘Cause I heard you snore
