November Poem a Day (PAD) Challenge 2023: Day 3

Hi everyone.

This November I will be presenting to you a month of daily poems as memoir, little ditties to tell you about my day or my thoughts during the day, whatever.  Of course I hope you enjoy them, but it’s ok if you don’t.  Just move on to the next blog in your list.

Day three is: “For today’s prompt, write a problem poem. You could present the problem in your poem. Or maybe make the problem the title of your poem and either expand on the problem or attempt to solve it. If the poem itself is giving you problems, don’t be afraid to lean into that.”

There’s no parking!

Circling endlessly
no parking in sight,
Take another round.

Down one lane
up the other.
Is that a place?

If only people
parked between the lines.
Do they not know why the lines are there?

Around again, stress building.
And finally realize
parking further away
would have been faster.
