illznah skillznah – narrative

A poem that tells a story in 20 lines or less…. it must have a beginning, a middle and an end, and be self contained… so, just like a short story, but in the form of a rhyme.

A Day

This morning I awoke
to sounds of roosters crowing.
My good mood couldn’t be broke
as my blood started flowing.

The day progressed
with an incident or two.
I let those slide
because the consequences were few.

The sun started to dip
behind the surrounding hills.
I knew that this was the ending
to this day’s fill of thrills.

So back to bed
tucked in tight.
I slipped off to dreamland
and nighty-night.
