List Poem

Recipe to Write a Poem

Make a pot of coffee
Gather pen and paper
Stare at blank page
Fill mug with coffee, sugar and cream
Continue to stare at blank page
Get up and start a load of laundry
Turn on computer and open pages
Realize coffee is now cold
Look up list poems
Distract yourself reading Sick
Realize the washer has stopped
Go put wet clothes in dryer
Scribble on paper
Drink cold coffee, refill
Stare at blank computer screen
Wonder if writing recipe works
Start a list poem
Realize your coffee is cold again

NaPoWriMo Prompt Day 2 – Today, I’d like you to write a poem inspired by, or in the form of, a recipe! It can be a recipe for something real, like your grandmother’s lemon chiffon cake, or for something imaginary, like a love potion or a spell.

Okay I’m not sure everyone should follow my recipe for writing a poem, but I accomplished another poem in April. Two days down – twenty-eight to go.
