Prompt 47: In 500 words or less, write about a plate of sunshine.
I’m not very good at writing things like this,
The happy analogies, the happiness kiss.
A plate of sunshine can not really be so,
No plate could withstand the heat, don’t you know?
I don’t really understand why the sun equals happy,
The sun hurts my eyes and makes me feel crappy.
Ok, so I know that was a bad line,
Just trying to, you know, make it rhyme.
But seriously, is it because the sun is so bright?
Because it is a big ball of light?
I just think happiness could be better displayed,
As a big huge umbrella on a rainy day.
Or the sound of your children as they sleep,
Your day is done, you can put up your feet.
Why can’t happiness be the lady on the other line,
Who tells you the results came back just fine.
A plate of sunshine I’d rather not have,
A million dollars wouldn’t be bad…..
