What can I say--I took the weekend off so I could goof off with the family.
Anyway, this is what I wrote as a result of the Sunday Scribblings writing challenge. I don't think I'll come back to it but it was fun to stretch myself a bit. I do see a line or two I may reuse. After I wrote my description, I started work on two new poems so it feels like my time was well spent.
Sunday Scribblings at Starbucks
This is where she comes to breathe.
She curls up in the corner
on break from classes at
the nearby college, types notes
on her laptop while reading
Coming to Peace with Science.
She drinks her grande, sighs to
a classmate about her professor,
bob haircut hiding her eyes
as she curls herself into an egg.
Should she drop out?
Should she change classes
turn day into night
and write her life’s story?
“Let me figure out what I have to do next,”
Miss Latte says, “so can move on.”
