for Miz Quickly’s poetic prompts: Day 1, seven words
Perfect April Fool
Wish to be a perfect poet,
writing poetic perfection
every day, one day at a time.
All lines perfectly aligned
first time consigned to paper.
No hesitation, just perfect
progression of meaning
and sound, marching through
days of this month after March.
Foolish wish can’t even be kissed,
but at least when this month
is finally finished, will possibly
own purse filled with perfectly
imperfect poems in need of a home,
and high hopes for possible future

notes: Have to love a prompter who says “rules are made to be ….” Seven words and I couldn’t get beyond the first one, but at least I was grinning.
Later Note: My apologies to one and all. I can’t seem to comment on anyone’s site. I’ve tried and the comments just disappear. I will try again later.
