Time for a Tuesday prompt from Margo Roby: Today she asks us to think of a misperception, perhaps of a word meaning or a situation, and to write a poem based on our thoughts.
We were the best of friends,
sharing coffee and conversation
day after day after day, never
running out of things to discuss.
Sharing our love of Mad Magazine,
early reading experiences,
laughing at our shared confusion
with the printed word “misled”
pronouncing it “mī’-zled” and
pondering its meaning.
Then no longer misled, but
just amazed at our good fortune.
Best of friends before – and
after – the revelations to come.
