3WW: Indecision, Option, Fate

The sky
of my morning
is a white board
waiting
for words

or pictures
or scribbles.
I’ll start
with breakfast-
so many

options: yellow
and white eggs,
or raspberry
jam on toast,
or sliced

banana on English
muffin. I sit
watching
a squirrel
in the woodpile

flit back
and forth
like my indecision.
I’ll just let
fate

grab a marker
or two,
maybe a red
and a black
to doodle.

Oh, she’s choosing
blue and yellow.
Time to eat
and go
to the beach.

I agree, simple yet, vivid in the pictures you painted.

There's a lovely relaxed feel to this poem, as though it's going to be a lovely day whichever decision you make.

A white board of opportunity..tabla rasa..almost..that first morning decision is when you have to start making your mark on the day..yellow and blue..maybe a banana eaten outdoors in the sun at lunch time..Jae

It was great to picture the scene, have breakfast, look out the window and toy with the markers. Captivating.

The tone of this poem is wonderful and encouraging. A good example of attitude shaping reality.
