Hump Day Poetry – Week 3

Hump Day Poetry is a weekly poetry blog-share every Wednesday. Here’s how you can join in

The rules:

1. Write a poem (any type of poetry, even for other challenges) You have from Wednesday to the following Tuesday to link up!
2. Link it to my poem of the week with a pingback or by leaving the link to your poem in comments.
3. Visit other bloggers’ poetry for that week. Like, leave a comment, and share! (Please try to visit as many other poets as possible. Keep the community love flowing!)

Note: to create a pingback, simply include the url of this post somewhere in your post. Please check my page to ensure your pingback has posted. If not, it is either awaiting moderation, or the pingback failed (happens sometimes!). To ensure your post is seen, you may want to just add the link to my page. I would rather have duplicates than not get to read your poetry!

Chilled Thoughts
~for Lisa D.

In the morning chill
with rain falling
just outside the window
I think of you
huddled in your bed
covers drawn to your chin
your teeth chattering
your knees knocking
your feet freezing
and as you lie there
suffering and whimpering
I can hear you repeating
over and over again
in your head:
I wish I was in Florida

  1. Its been a week of distractions
    What with the funeral of a student
    Children and their particular needs
    Best friend going away
    Uncertainty and absence.
    So Wednesday’s poem
    I am afraid I have missed out on writing
    so please forgive my tardiness
    I have excuses a plenty.
    But next week I’ll make an effort
    Pen a rhyme or two
    some might even make a lick of sense
    But I cannot promise anything but words…

    Haha! I never wish I was in Florida, but I have been known to dream about ice hotels in August 😉
