Career Day

Poetic Asides – Poem-A-Day Challenge – Day 25 Prompt:

A few times this month, I've felt like the forces working around my daily life are keeping track of my prompts (most of which I had set in stone before April started). For instance, I wasn't able to get Day 13's highlights up this morning (look for them on Monday), because my Clark Kent persona as a mild-mannered editor of Writer's Market had some indexes to go over late last night. Sometimes work just gets in the way of having fun and saving the world, I guess.

Anyway, the reason that is relevant to today's prompt is that we need to write an occupational poem today. You can write about your own occupation or that of another. Had a favorite job from the past? A least favorite job? A funny story from a job? Consider these questions before tackling your poem today.



bookshelves filled
with “how to write”
a novel, memoir
poetry, romance

containers of pens
scattered in every room
reminders that
there’s work to do

a notepad in the pocket
another in my purse
a journal in every room
scribbled phrases
on napkins, receipts
the back of the phone bill

cup after cup of
warm amber tea
pajamas and socks
with pencils in my hair

this is the job I’ve chosen
or maybe it chose me
either way, I’d not trade
for any other in the world
