Breakfast Blues

I am taking three, count em, three! prompts and combining them into one fun poem! I am putting up the poem first, then I'll tell you the prompts.

Breakfast Blues
Breakfast
Cereal, milk,
Juice and syrup dripping
Onto the floor. Dog is licking.
The phone rang while I packed up the lunches.
Four year old experimenting
With gravity, dropping
Every part of
Breakfast

  1. Aheila's Drabble Day (from Monday) prompt was "breakfast" in 100 words (I am only about 33, sorry about that)
  2. Robert Lee Brewer's Poetic Asides, Wednesday poetry prompt "when you're not paying attention"
  3. and C R Ward at Random Thoughts offers a poetic form on Thursdays. This week's form is Rictameter
This was one of the posts that was lost and reposted by blogger - the links got messed up so I fixed them because they deserve credit!

Awesome! I thought it was a great poem even before I read the prompts.

Wow! I'm sincerely impressed (not that you don't usually do a great job). Awesome poem!
Tackling on three prompts at once is definitely my kind of crazy!
