Day 17 prompt: playful

(an acrostic poem) 

Pause …


Around …





(Until today, I’ve resisted this poetic form because it felt too easy, like a cop-out. But with the prompt of “playful,” it was such a natural fit. The words came to me while I was putting dirty clothes in the washing machine, of all things. I paused. And although I didn’t laugh, I did smile at how poetry can occur at unexpected times and places.)
