So much depends

Standard
Slice Daily for the Entire Month of March

March Slice of Life Challenge

Once again, I offer my apologies to William Carlos Williams. His short poems make perfect model/mentor/copycat poems, especially now when I have little energy to create my own writing.

A Good Night’s Sleep

so much depends
upon

a good night’s
sleep

filled with a soft
pillow

beneath my snoozing
head.

A Hacking Cough

so little left because
of

a hacking
cough

stealing my restful
nights

and killing my
energy.

The Original

The Red Wheelbarrow
W. C. Williams

so much depends
upon

a red wheel
barrow

glazed with rain
water

beside the white
chickens.

Sentries in a Row

Standard

slice

Standing at attention,

8 sentries in a row.

Weary waiting watchmen,

Words won’t flow.

 

At ease, soldiers.

Off to the barracks–

get some shuteye.

 

At daybreak, reveille

sounds the new day.

The soldiers march

in perfect cadence,

words revealed.
