May 2: Weather or Not
We decided not to go boating today
because the weatherman is predicting
thunder showers this afternoon. So, I'm sitting
in bed playing on my iPad while Gary snores
beside me. I almost went outside like I did
during April but I just wasn't that ambitious.
By the time I woke up, the sun had already risen
and the light around the blinds was boring old
white not the gold that makes everything look
beautiful. So, I plumped three pillows
behind me and am leaning against them.
I checked Facebook to see what was new.
Looks like the Bruins lost to the Canadiens
in the hockey playoffs last night. Then I checked
the Weather Channel app: 75 sunny degrees here
and 52 in Old Orchard Beach. We'll be up there
in nine days. I played six games of Words
With Friends. Started today's Wordstorm.
I'm up to 68% but didn't get the big one yet.
Checked The Writer's Almanac for today's poem:
"Making a Bed" by Howard Moss. Then I came here
to Pages to write....anything. First, though, I went
to my Kindle app and checked out the prompt for
today in a new book I just downloaded yesterday
called The Daily Poet and found out the Weather
Channel began broadcasting on this day in 1982.
That's 32 years ago. So, they want us to include
weather terms in our poem today. Gary's snuggled
like a thundering cloud next to me, my phone is vibrating,
a mini earthquake, and I'm out of nothing to write about.
