There was so much daylight savings time change it’s still sunny hope
when I sat down to write before 7:00
in between pickups and drop-offs and more pickups
I even thought – – this is funny, really…
I even thought “maybe I’ll also read a chapter of one of those books from that tall tall stack on the table.”
The dog curled up at my feet
I sipped hot cocoa while I read other people’s stories and left comments
I started a few slices of my own
you know the kind of writing?
write, delete, write, delete
15 minutes before I had to leave, my eyes started to droop
I set my timer
and promptly fell asleep
Now it’s dark, no sunny hope
but I wrote.
