Poetry: Warming Up

Gina's Office

I joined an online writing group offered by Jill Badonsky. As part of this group, she offers prompts to get us writing. I won’t share her prompts here (If you want that inspiration, you can join, too!) but in an effort to honor those sweet folks who are cheering me on as I leap into this writing thing again, I’ll share some of my responses.

Than a mom with kids tucked in.

Cinquain – 2 – 4 – 6 – 8 – 2

Are the sweetest
Blessings on this big earth.
In spite of full time duty, call me,
