The exercise:

Write about: teleportation.

Feeling very tired. It was another long day on the road, as Max seems to have suddenly lost his ability to sleep through car trips.

But at least when we did finally arrive, Kat's brother, sister-in-law, and our niece were here waiting for us. We had dinner with them at Kat's parent's house and hung out for a little bit afterward. Definitely looking forward to spending more time with them before they have to head back home on Friday.

Probably not too much tomorrow, though. For tomorrow is box program day.


It is breathtaking,
The power of
A scent, a book,
A taste, a touch,
A voice, a word,
A single look,
A faded photograph,
Or a passing face
To transport me
To another place.

Heh, and would today's prompt be inspired by the wish that you could simply teleport from one place to another and thus avoid long car journeys with a grumpy child? That's a lovely poem and a great take on the prompt though!

The belletristic Hugo deLay
Got his third wife on sale on eBay
Unknown to him, teleportation
Was her way to get liberation.

He woke up to find she had left him
The bed she demanded unslept in.

Plastic puppy on the table
Pick it up, put it away!
Plastic puppy on the floor
Pick it up, put it away!
Plastic puppy on the table
I swear it teleports!

(Plastic puppy high in the closet
There to stay.)
