Writing 101, Day 12:  Write a post inspired by a real-world conversation.


Sitting on the deck

watching hummingbirds

dive-bombing the magic red

sugar water,

we finally talked about

the pachyderm in the parlor.

Coffee in hand,

hearts on our sleeves,

we stopped flinging the dung

at one another,

and finally,

helped each other shovel.
