Driving, walking, talking, shopping, buying coffee, texting, studying, reading, standing in my yard, listening, laughing, minding my own business. While black.

#PoemADay #30Poems30Days #AprPAD #WritersDigest, Today’s Theme: Reason

The national poetry month challenge is supposed to be for 30 straight days of writing poetry, however, in true fashion, I have fallen off and wittled my writing down to Wednesdays as my days get busy. So in an effort to at least stay on track, here’s this week’s contribution.  Today’s theme from the Writer’s Digest website is:  Reason

and the greatest of these 

the reason I love
God told me I had no choice
love is the best commandment

#PoemADay #AprPAD #WritersDigest today’s theme: lucky number

7 times 7  (April 8,2019)

Not a round number
but meaningful
nonetheless
I was born in 73
7 plus 3 is 10
10 minus 3 is 7
what does that mean?
nothing at all
I made it up
but the outcome
is still 7
I worked at my last job
for 7 years
I was initiated
into my sorority
in 2007
and I was the 7th person
in line
again
means nothing
but in my head
it gives me motivation
hope
and solace
that there is something
beyond me
when God
for some reason
continues to
bestow
not luck
but grace
upon me
in the form of
the infinite
number 7
