Have you a pattern for your life
wherein you’ve cut out stress and strife,
only allowing perfection?
Is every day a new confection—
cherry pie and chocolate cake?
No rejection? No heartbreak?
No erstwhile friends or jealous crazies—
your entire life a field of daisies?
It must be great, without a doubt,
but what have you to write about?

The prompt word today was pattern.

    This poem is in need of a good title–one that gives an idea that it is written for writers without giving the ending away. I couldn’t think of one.. can you? Please help.

    You’re quite good at writing poetry. In fact, when I read your poems they make it sound so easy to write, but then when I try…my mind goes blank! So, I’ll just enjoy your poems. 🙂
