Sign of the Times: Day 14/30 #National Poetry Project #SOL20

It’s Slice of Life Tuesday AND National Poetry Month. Today I awoke to this mess of a table I was using for our desk during the blackout. It is a sunny spot but not the best place to get work done. Taking a note from Poems are Teachers (thank you Amy VanderWater) where pictures can prompt poems, I looked at the clutter and started writing. I do judge my writing today reflects the scattered messiness of the desk. 🙂

  1. This is a great example of how to find inspiration to write from everyday life. Messy desks are the sign of productive, artistic minds, right? Well, that’s what I tell myself!

  2. Yikes…I’ve been there. Your poem reflects that “what do I do first” feeling. Obviously, you are busy woman. Good luck!

  3. My desk looks very much the same! Love the idea of a picture inspiring a poem. I will give that a go!

  4. I can relate. I have converted my dining room table into a makeshift classroom. It’s a bit of a mess and I will be eating elsewhere for the duration.

  5. One person’s mess is another’s order. I know where everything is, that’s the important thing! Love the poem–the messiness is its form.
