Woes of Water

It’s already Tuesday again?  Didn’t I just post last week’s prompt over at Mama Kat’s yesterday?  Wow, time does fly when you are having fun!

This week I chose several prompts to write about.   First up to bat, prompt 3. “Write a poem about the last person you spoke to on the phone, based on the conversation you had.”  Here’s my sweet little poem about the woes of water.


Help! My garage roof is leaking.

And I am afraid of peeking

Out to the garage to see

The wet rainy mess that waits for me.

But wait there’s more

You see my basement floor?

It’s wet too I exclaimed

All thanks to the water that rained.

There you have it, my little poem about the joys of home-ownership when your 56 year old house starts to bend and sigh with old age.  Corny, yep it sure is. But it IS the last conversation I had with a friend this morning.

  1. I could feel the water…been there..had it happen..but alas did not write a poem!
    Good job!

  2. Thanks! Hopefully MI will stay rain-free for a while and let me catch my breath! Enjoy your weekend! Hope it’s sunny and sweet!
