Plumb Tired

Day Nine of NaPoWriMo. *

Today’s prompt:
” write a “concrete” poem – a poem in which the lines and words are organized to take a shape that reflects in some way the theme of the poem. “

As my bathroom remodel drags on, I have spent some sleepless nights worrying about things like p traps and wax ring seals and waterproof caulk. So today’s poem is a reflection of that. Herewith,

Plumb Tired

plumb tired

I couldn’t sleep a wink last night
as I lay in my bed.
The drip, drip, drip of piped in thoughts
were swirling through my head.
My bathroom is a shambles
since I tried to fix some leaks.
What started out a simple task
has now turned into weeks.
The toilet out, a new floor laid,
the sink restored to white.
I’m flushed with pride, the leaks subside.
Perhaps tonight I’ll sleep.

    Wow! The structure is amazingly well done…like the drip, drip of water flowing.
