november poem-a-day, day 26
The PAD prompt for day 26 is write an “on the run” poem. I thought about how much I love running and began with a list of things I love about it. And then I started to write about other things I love, a “raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens”-type “favorite things” list.
I tried to merge the two lists, but I haven’t quite managed to do it smoothly. I’d like to try it again sometime — both a favorite things list and also a poem about running — but not a merge of the two. I have an old, old one that is a pantoum. I think it’s a great form for a running poem. But today, no form. Today it is the list poem to the rescue once again!
