I don’t write poems, but for the sake of the daily prompt, I’ve decided to make an exception. So here goes…
In the morning when I rise
The man is gone for it is wise
For him to work and make the pay
While I work from home today
I throw off the sheets and get out of bed
And head to the laundry room for it I dread
A load of clothes thrown in the wash
An easy chore as our clothes are not posh
Then off to the kitchen before my son gets sad
Quickly I make a bowl of cereal for the lad
After he’s happy, I pour my cup of joe
Then off to the computer I go
I read through blogs
And write a post of my own
Then I must quickly change my tone
For I have a writing job that I do alone
Carefully to the assignment I tend
Until it’s complete and ready to send
My work is now done
Now it’s time for fun
A long workout and sweat on my head
Now my physical body has been fed
Off to the shower for I know I stink
Probably similar to a dirty wild mink
Time for studies with my son
He’s got a lot to learn before he’s twenty one
The day quickly approaches its end
Time to make dinner for the family to attend
We sit and chat
Laugh and get fat
Then it’s time to kick back
So we can stay on track
For family time is crucial
We never consider it futile
Then off to bed everyone goes
For another wonderful day has come to a close
Since I do not write poems, this was certainly a challenge. It was a new style of writing for me, but I must admit that it was fun to do.
This post is a response to the Daily Post prompt: Rare Medium
Describe a typical day in your life — but do it in a form or in a medium you’ve rarely — if ever – used before. If you’re a photoblogger, write a poem. If you’re a poet, write an open letter. If you’re a travel blogger, write a rant.
You managed this so very good 🙂
Thank you, Irene! I was a bit a nervous to hit publish. 🙂
Very nice job. But I do have one question for you. What does a dirty wild mink smell like? And more important, how do you know what one smells like?
Since they are somewhat similar to a ferret, I would assume that their smell is similar too. I’ve smelled ferrets and they stink! Plus since you asked, I looked it up. Their smell has been described as “more unbearable than that produced by skunks”.
Also, thank you! I figured that if you could write a poem, then maybe I could too. 🙂
I like it! 🙂 Very catchy!
Well done! Enjoyed it and got a real feel for your day.
Thank you very much. It was fun to write.
Hahaha love this
Awesomely done, are you sure you’re new at poetry this was amazing.
What a sweet compliment. Thank you. Poems are somewhat of a foreign concept for me, but maybe along the way I’ll try my hand at a few.

So beautiful! Enjoyed it. 🙂
Thank you, Dilip. I’m glad you enjoyed it.
You did well. It was fun to read your day in this way.
Sue, thank you. I suppose it is more interesting than writing it in list form, eh? 🙂
I love lists! rofl
We sit and chat laugh and get fat – now that’s a great way to spend the day! I like!
Ha! Thank you! A walk afterward would make the day perfect.
A very nice job – you DO have some poet in you. 🙂
Thanks, April. 🙂 It’s not something I would have thought to do on my own. I rarely even read poems. It was fun though!
Great poem! Love the way it came full circle. 🙂 Cate
Cate, thank you! It was enjoyable to write. The thought of some of the rhyming words that I could have used, had me laughing all the way through the writing of it.
