the parenting gig

Welcome to NaPoWriMo 2019! The first prompt asked us provide the reader with instructions. I wish I had a better grasp on these instructions when I was a parent — the saving grace is that I can practice slowing down as a grandparent! The poetry form I used is a French form, known as a “lai” which is a nine-line poem in an aabaabaab pattern. “A” lines get 5 syllables; “B” lines get 2 syllables.


Let me know what you think!
