Day 24 ~ Short, and Sweetish

Day 24 brings me to a near fault.  My steam is running out, and I just need something I can get through.  How about you?  So today’s prompt challenges you to go down a grammatical path.  Today you write the one sentence poem!  Doesn’t sound harrowing, at all, does it?  I have been fascinated with this idea since high school lit class and the introduction of “The Red Wheelbarrow“.  What?  That’s a poem?  Pretty much my reaction.  Now, I’m older, and oh so much wiser, and I have to say, “WHAT? NOW THAT’S A POEM!”  The sound is beautiful within the line, and I certainly have not forgot it.  That has to count for something.   More recently I have been madly in love with Mary Szybist poem, “It Is Pretty to Think”, (from Incarnadine) diagramed sentence as a poem.  I took a pic from the book just so you could see it and then buy the book!

So now to it, write yourself a one sentence poem! No cheating with semicolons.  Make it grammatically correct.

so much depends

a red wheel

chickens.
