It’s week 26, the halfway mark for the year. Time sure does fly when you’re hanging out at home due to a pandemic. It seems like I just wrote my poem for prompt #25 and it’s already time for another.
So the challenge this week is to write about the phrase “What a Relief.” Have you been relieved about something? Maybe you got to go back to work? Or some test results came back negative? Or the bee population seems to be doing well and is busy pollinating this year?
Whatever it is, craft your poem about it using at least 4 of the following 7 words and phrases: smooth sailing, shark, concrete, wax seal, summer camp, margarita, and straw hat.
For some reason, these words and phrases have me feeling a little silly, so my offering today will lean that way. Besides, there’s been too much serious in my world of late.
Changing Summer Plans Summer camp is cancelled and what a relief it is The wax sealed invitation sure did send me in a spin The sea shore was the venue and I'm deathly afraid of sharks They said it would be smooth sailing but I seriously have my doubts I don't even have a straw hat to protect me from the harsh sun I'd rather visit my sister We'll sip margaritas and eat tacos on her concrete patio Now that's what I call summer
Now it’s your turn to share your poem about something that was a big relief. Remember, use at least 4 of the paint chip words or phrases. Extra bonus points if you use all 7. Share your poem in the comments, or if you have your own blog, post it there and share a link in the comments. I can’t wait to see what y’all come up with.
