I gave more than you.

No expectation of return,

I wanted to.

My career left behind.

Sleep, no longer I find.

I care for you, not out of obligation,

but from my soul, my heart,

simply love.

Sure, I could do many things,

but my time is precious,

time to you I bring.

Some say it’s a sacrifice,

I say it’s my life.

Haphazard: A Daily Prompt Poem

The Daily Prompt states: Scribble down the first ten words that come to mind. Pick three of them. There’s your post title. Now write!

Photographers, artists, poets: show us HAPHAZARD.


Wild, unfettered.

Your reckless demeanor is menacing.

You rode your bicycle through a field of people.

Yelling, shouting, gleeful.

You hold not a care in the world.

As if the universe was your playground.

Others must flee, run, get out-of-the-way.

You drive your car miles above the speed limit.

You only eat eggs when they are two weeks past the due date.

No one can be near you,


Accidental is your name.

Haphazard is your game.

Excuse me I must take my leave,

in danger just mentioning your name.
