anticipating the weekend

I’m celebrating National Poetry Month by writing and reading poetry, every day. My poetry project is grows out of a list of things that make me happy. I made this list on the 30th of March.

Today, Sunday, 18th idea on my list, is ironically anticipating the weekend.

anticipation

is an overanxious child
who dreams of the
fantastic
possible

is the thought of
sweetness as
chocolate
melts

is a joy seeker
one who sees
the half as
full

is the heart racing
feeling of
what if
moments

is a dreamer
full of
will be’s
and could b’s

is the taste of
hope
promise
future

day 18, national poetry month 2021

  1. I love your personification poem of anticipation. “overanxious child…” “joy seeker”… I want to use this as a mentor text.
