On Writing A Poem A Day

On Writing A Poem A Day

A brilliant creation

reigns in some hemisphere

of my brain. The left or is it

the right? No matter

it plans to move to the

correct corner soon.

It promised.

In the meantime

I wait in the alley

a cheerful puppy

with a pink ball

tossing it at the wall

needing it to bounce

snap back

so that I can continue to dream.

Perhaps if brilliance reigns

bask in the golden light of acceptance

for a few milliseconds

before the balding critic

pulling my leash

draws me home

to draft

another tantalizing verse

to share

with the world

again tomorrow.
