Poem for Totally Optional Prompts

Totally Optional Prompts post: Let's write about exercise this week.

Orphaned Thoughts

ghosts of threat
...promise carrots and
wield small sticks
treadmill hugs the wall

books lean against weights
...flexible rubber tubing
on scattered tables
pleads for a stretch

she expects to work out
...doesn't know for sure
when dust buried
thoughts of good intent

Watercolor by Sue.

You've done a work out on the mind nicely here.

I never get as far as even THINKING about it!

Danny Wise said...

Sounds like my shed, 'cos that's where my exercise stuff has been relegated to!

Tammie Lee said...

Your watercolor is lovely, as is your poem. I bet this tale is quite quite common! ;-)

Kristy Worden said...

Yours are always the best!

Geraldine said...

This is great Sue! And great minds do think alike (my post and yours re: exercise etc...) You've made my day.

Hugs, G

How many calories can we burn, just planning to exercise?

Doesn't that count for something?
