My Poem Writing Year - Soap Hope - #110



This is a pet peeve poem!  Whenever I find only a sliver of soap in the shower, part of me loves its thinness, and part of me longs for a fresh new bar.  What is better than a new bar of IVORY with the words still etched deep?

Students - what drives you crazy?  Keep on the lookout for those tiny daily things that make you say, "Oh darn!" and then write.

Oh! Another funny true to life poem! Someone is going to come along and want to put these into a collection... they just get better and better... have you had any bites from a publisher?

Laura,
Thank you! It was fun to list all of those slippery words... I do love your "15 Words or Less" challenges, Laura.

Mag,
Actually, one possible bite on one of my longer blog poems (as a picture book). It will be fun to see if anything comes of it. Thank you for your encouragement.
