It’s week 22!
And it’s my birthday too!
Had to start with this poem just for you.
I’m excited about our topic for today. We are writing about our dream job. I don’t know about you, but my current paying job is not my dream job.
Today I want you to write about your dream job using at least three of these paint chip words or phrases: saxophone solo, lion heart, saffron, spring, black hole, spirit rock, and ivory. Bonus points if you use all seven and include a rhyme scheme that involves using one or more of the prompt words.
Like I said, my current job is not my dream job. My dream is to be a professional writer and inspirational speaker. I’m working toward that being my next career when I retire from where I am now. Here’s my poem about that dream job.
Oh What a Dream Sometimes it seems this crazy dream is being drawn whole into an enormous black hole Devoured by a lion heart tired of tryin' to catch my big break What will it take Still I keep writing even if no one's biting success rare as saffron or warmth with the dawn Jesus upholds my spirit rocks my appeal to quit bids me keep moving on not settle for being a pawn Easier to play a saxophone solo craft endured alone yet bonded to kindred others writing sisters and brothers Encouragement springs forth a compass pointing north ivory keys in my life dispelling fear and strife Someday my dream job will follow my practiced quill and then I shall be the best and blessed me
Okay, now it’s your turn. What will you write for me for my birthday? I can’t wait to see! Post your poem in the comments below. Or if you have your own blog, post it there and drop a link in the comments. Don’t forget to include a link back here in your post so others can come play along.
