    ======================================================================================

    I look out the window
    Leaden sky that says snow
    Cries of “We need milk and bread!” unleashed across the neighborhood
    as cars leave their driveways for store shelves already empty

    I sit in my chair
    Look at the fire
    and wait for flakes to fly
    in this incarnations only flight
    to their beautiful common grave

  4. Monday Poetry Prompt
    We all waited patiently
    Not knowing what to expect
    Time passed on, slowly,
    Anticipating what would happen
    As the clock’s big hand hit the 12
    I felt the air raise for certain
    It actually tightened
    When he walked in the door.

  5. she breathed in the air
    certain that her day would be
    a good one to ask
    for a raise, since she deserved
    to have reward for her work

    her boss arrived late
    this was a bad sign, for sure
    as this always meant
    a fuss with his wife, and then
    he would be in a sour state

    pushing air from lungs
    she sat back in her office chair
    tapped out her request
    for a raise, certain that the
    cloud would lift from his bad mood

    she gave her request
    he reviewed it, with a frown
    that’s when he noticed
    the warmth of the bright sunbeam
    smiling, he gave approval
