The Day Worth Living


“It was only a sunny smile,

and little it cost in the giving,

but like morning light

it scattered the night

and made the day

worth living.”


~ F. Scott Fitzgerald


Elfje:            (Cinquain)



anticipated outcome

guided planned actions

quality of being determined



Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7


what really happened

unraveling mystery

count only the facts

it was not a fairy tale

no trolls or ogres involved




to write a ditty
you must be witty

sarcasm is not included in the flow
crazy should come from the elbow

to be a wit you should never submit
but to others wit you should admit

when in doubt just write the pun
you will find that it is so much fun

so when your words begin to fail
just go to the local rummage sale


ME and the Boss
