AprPAD: 2 April


There’s a small space
on my desk
where a calendar sits.

It takes up the whole year.

There’s a space between
my teeth that used to
catch bits of meat

so I became vegetarian.

Move over. Give me
some space, and
let me grow,

said the acorn to the oak.

  3. I like this form, stanzas numbered, with a single line capper. Space can be a lonely sphere or calming safe harbor.

  9. I wish my finals were as good as these 1st drafts. 😀 The form is great – the statement in the trio, the pause for breath, for reflection, and then the witty ironic conclusion.
