Poetry Friday: The Word is NO
It's Poetry Friday, folks! Time to flex and fawn, time to recall and relate.
The Word for Today is NO, a word I use several hundred times a day, in various incantations. Some with the kids, yes, but more often at work, where NO is my shield from stupid people doing stupid things.
Feel free to use this word in your blog post today, in whatever form flickers your pilot light...story, poem, photo, video, recipe, scan of your favourite body part....
If you participate in Poetry Friday today, please leave a comment so we can all go see what you've done with the Word!
Have a great weekend, y'all!
Sleeps on Her Left Side, Snoring Softly
She keeps a flashlight by her bed
And a wolf named Smokie at her side
To ward off
Captain Hook from
She wears Flannel pajamas and fleece blankets,
a summer night on the sound machine
she begs her mother
for one more minute
She didn’t like math today
No, it was too hard, no,
She likes science mostly
Science and art
She breathes like she’s already asleep
Then she slides there,
Her mother’s kiss
I love you
Snow starting to fall
No, No, No, No, No, NO, NO!
