April Poem-a-Day — April 14, 2014

Monday, April 14th, 2014

For today’s prompt, take the phrase “If I Were (blank),” replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then, write the poem.



If I Were Three


I’d climb Mt. Katahdin

all the way up,

and when we reached top

I’d ask,

When do we start to climb?

For we hadn’t had to scrabble

on hands and knees

nor learned to use pitons and ropes.


Now my excitement is

trips to buy groceries

cookouts next door

occasional mild vacation.

My mind still eager and wild,

my body incompetent.
