Fresh Morning Dew

Celery juice in the morning

is like drinking in fresh morning dew

it's incredibly refreshing

and really good for you too

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I recently got into the habit of having some fresh celery juice in the morning along with my organic juice cleanse and coffee with cinnamon and coconut oil and chocolate almond milk then a little later a banana and a few hours later a bowl of organic oatmeal with cinnamon,raisins,coconut oil,chia seeds and sometimes unsweetened cinnamon appleasauce...anyway that celery juice reminds me of the morning dew and it is so refreshing to drink. I love it and it is really healthy for you. It's good for lots of things and really feels like drinking in the fresh morning dew...anyway that is what inspired today's poem... #NaPoMo #NationalPoetryMonth #PoemADay #April2021 #Day27

Strange World

What a strange world we live in

don't know what to expect

Never give in

Don't get upset

Author's Notes/Comments: 

The Writer's Digest poetry prompt for today was to write a poem from a title blank world...so I chose Strange World mostly because my sister told me about a show yesterday on Netflix called The Circle that is very strange. It is reality TV that I usually do not watch but it's a game. It makes you wonder about how much of this stuff really happens online hence Strange World...so inspired by something I was watching yesterday and the title prompt... #NaPoMo #NationalPoetryMonth #April2021 #PoemADay #Day26

Reverse Psychology

Reverse psychology works pretty well

People just naturally want to rebel

Nobody likes to be told what to do

Try it and see if it works for you

Author's Notes/Comments: 

A memory popped into my head this morning about when I learned about reverse psychology and decided to try it and see how it worked. My mom had grounded me for something stupid I don't remember why but usually I would just stay in my room and pout about it. I decided to try reverse psychology so I started following my mom around. I was like Hi mom,what are we doing? I'm grounded so I am gonna hang around with you. I was right up on her every move...within a few minutes she was like Get outta here! I was like but I can't I'm grounded, remember? She was like not anymore. Get out of here! So my first try with reverse psychology worked like a charm...Ha Ha! Decided to write a poem about Reverse Psychology... #NaPoMo #NationalPoetryMonth #PoemADay #April2021 #Day25

Jello

The swimming pool was filled with jello

and of all things colored yellow

just what sort of twisted fellow

made the pool so very shallow

 
Author's Notes/Comments: 

This was done using a writing prompt for a Writer's Cramp contest entry on Writing.com The prompt was to write a poem about a swimming pool filled with something other than water...for some reason jello popped into my head to make this weird poem...enjoy... #NaPoMo, #NationalPoetryMonth,  #PoemADay, #April2021, #Day24

The Rebel in Me

There were only three rules

and I broke all three

guess it must be

the rebel in me

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I really like those Writers Cramp contest prompts on Writing.com...this is the second day I checked their prompt and the second time a poem came to me so it is good inspiration while doing a poem a day for National Poetry Month. They just have a contest there and yesterday  I am sure I did not enter correctly but today pretty sure I did but I won't remember how to do it tomorrow...they have such a weird complicated system that will take awhile to figure out and get used to I guess...maybe I will just use it for the prompts and heck with their contest entry...so this one is done a day early again #NaPoMo #NationalPoetryMonth #PoemADay #April2021 #Day23

Cadence

I used to watch Charmed and wonder if

because of my rhymes I was a witch

The Book of Shadows things they read

that rhyming cadence is in my head

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I don't really think I am a witch but I found it interesting the way their spells rhymed and the cadence they had just like poetry. Well they are poetry really. Rhyming lines with cadence... I do think poetry is magical though. Different people read it and read into it different things. That is pretty magical. Like everybody gets their own message from it whatever makes sense to them. It's pretty cool. #NaPoMo #NationalPoetryMonth #PoemADay #April2021 #Day21

Multitasking

I think I multitask too much

I do too many things at once

I think I might enjoy things more

one at a time to just explore

 

Author's Notes/Comments: 

This came to me while listening to an online health summit and reading an ebook at the same time...how can you possibly get anything out of either doing both at the same time? I often listen to summits while doing other stuff online and wonder how much of that info is actually absorbed. It would be nice to at least try to do one thing at a time and really be in the moment and enjoy whatever it is I am doing rather than all this multitasking that most seem to do these days...a lot less stressful too. I am gonna attempt it and see what happens. It won't be easy. Old habits die hard... #NaPoMo #NationalPoetryMonth #PoemADay #April2021 #Day20

Censorship

Do you ever have nothing to say

or nothing to say out loud

maybe sometimes there isn't a way

to say it that is allowed

 

Author's Notes/Comments: 

just some food for thought today...#NaPoMo #NationalPoetryMonth #PoemADay #April2021 #Day19
