1985 was 35 years ago
Hate to break it to ya', Millennial does not equal youths. We've got mortgages, car payments, 401ks. So, as a reminder, here are other things that have been around for thirty-five years. Credit for 1985 history: http://www.thepeoplehistory.com/1985.html

Nostalgia and Whimsy
Today I sorted through mementos in my closet and remembered all the places I've gone and where I've been lucky enough to return to. We haven't been able to leave the house much as we're trying to do our best to contain COVID19 and so it got me thinking of all the times I've left the house. Shout out to Amy Kay Poetry for prompt to use a repeating line "anaphora".

Evidently I missed Sibling Day
Amy Kay Poetry's prompt was write instructions for something and I missed sibling day the other day and tonight I watched the latest version of "Little Women", so I wrote this for my sisters.
word of the day is: Pandiculation
Today's poem inspired by both Amy Kay Poetry and the dictionary's word of the day. I wasn't going to write to Amy Kay's prompt and then the word of the day just fit, so I did.

How's It Gonna Be?
Lot of predictions being made right now and always about just about everything. I loved picking the "question in a song" from Amy Kay Poetry's prompt today for National Poetry Month. I picked Third Eye Blind's "How's It Gonna Be?". Here's my answer to their question in the form of a poem.
Around 3 pm I got a migraine. I managed to keep working and after work had to lay down. I think too much screen time so you get another short and sweet.
Prompt from Amy Kay Poetry on Instagram (not me!!) is to write a collum lune poem which is a simple form poem of 3 lines, first line three words, second line is five words, and the third line is three words. She then gave helpful instructions to go get a book, turn to page 22 and use the 3rd or 4th word in my poem. The word I found was "barbarian". I was thinking about who seems foreign to me as if they are from a different world and I happen to peruse the internet and see some acquaintances of mine express doubt about climate change. That person may as well be speaking "barbar". I don't understand them.
