Today I decided to write my poem-of-the-day based on the NaPoWriMo2015 prompt, which is to write a poem that states things that I know. This could be a really long poem, because my head is full of all kinds of trivial knowledge, but I’ll just pick a few because I don’t have all day and neither do you.
Some of What I Know
Every person I meet has been through
some trial I know nothing about.
God knows every trial you and I have been through
every thought and deed that makes up our lives.
Potatoes are delicious, gluten-free, and dairy free
when cooked on a Traeger, boiled, fried, or roasted with herbs.
Eating gluten-free and dairy free is not as difficult
as people who don’t have to think it must be.
The sight and smell of flowers
can brighten even a dreary day.
The Oxford comma is never a bad choice
because it is a clear rule that avoids confusion.
The Chicago Manual of Style is a great resource
for questions of grammar and punctuation.
Poetry cares little about what
The Chicago Manual of Style has to say.
The Bible is made up of 66 books, all God’s Word
and is a great resource for the big questions of life.
Some people care little about what
God’s Word has to say about the trials they’ve been through.
