PROMPT #165 – “A DROP IN THE BUCKET”

Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman in “The Bucket List”

A few years back there was an emotional movie starring Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman called “The Bucket List”. We all desire to enjoy some of life’s finer things, but reality and time limitations may dictate otherwise. Make an ersatz “Bucket List”. Think of the things you always wanted to do, but know you probably never will. Choose one item and make it the basis of your poem. Give it a favorable outcome, you deserve it!

WALT BEYONG THE PAIL:

WE GATHER TOGETHER

A banquet hall
all decked out. A gathering
of poets far and near.
Here we assemble,
humble persons of words
to meet and greet.
Embraces of the faces
we have come to know.
A show of community;
a bond of unity.
Poets; aside and bloomed
fill our room to not talk rhyme
but to have the time
to know the others
who have become our sisters and brothers.
We gather together for the cause of words.
And the words are good!
