2011 November PAD Chapbook Challenge: Day 2


For today’s prompt, use an epigraph to kickstart your poem. That is, use a quotation. You can use a favorite of your own, or if you’re having trouble thinking of one, I’ve provided a few below. To format an epigraph poem, a poet places the quotation between the title and the body of the poem, while also giving credit to the source of the quotation.

Life Goes On

     "It's Not Fair!"  - J. L. Matison (6 hear old girl)

She has one
  I don't
I want one
  You won't
Why not?
  How come?
I'm broke! 


My PAD poem from day 1

I haven't done a good job at posting lately and send out many apologies.  Finally I am getting around to posting my Day 1 poem for the 2011 Nov. PAD challenge! 


2011 November PAD Chapbook Challenge: Day 1

So here are today’s prompts:
·                     Write a procrastination poem, or as I like to call it a “I’ll get to it tomorrow” poem. Or…
·                     Write a proactive poem, or the old “I’ll get to it today” poem.

I should have called

What I didn't do today
I cannot do tomorrow
Time will never again allow it
What I would have done
now echoes only as heartache
What I should have done
haunts me
My dreams whisper regret
My thoughts fill me with strange distress
I am on trial
with myself
I said I would call
I never did
now I never can

Does heaven take phone calls?
