What a Trip!

Shoes left
in the middle
of the floor…forgotten…
until the middle of the night:
Dark.  Ouch!

Note: Poetic Form: Cinquain; inspired by Poets United Thursday Think Tank #58 [darkness]


  1. Great construction within form, RJ; and the story you tell is painfully accurate!

  2. Quite cute, RJ. Nice to see you back!


  3. I'm always being told off for leaving my shoues around.

  4. Thanks Kim! I was just having a little fun (on myself, actually!)

  5. Thanks, Pamela! Nice to be back!

  6. Good job. My husband does this to me all the time. :)

    I stopped by to thank you for your Amy Winehouse limerick. I'm so glad you're a part of my weekly Limerick-Offs!

  7. Thanks, Madeleine. As soon as I saw your prompt, that was the thing that came to mind. Usually I try to write humorous, but at that moment, I couldn't.

    I was a fan, and although her death is considered a cautionary tale by some, it's still tragic and saddening, nonetheless.

    (And then after I wrote that poem, I had to go for a couple more in the insipid and silly category.)

    Your site is a wonderful and welcome respite. Sometimes, what we really need is the release that only humor can bring.
