NaPoWriMo Day 11: K is for Ted Kooser

 I especially enjoy what I think of as plain-spoken poems.  Poems that communicate something beautiful in a straightforward manner and don’t beat around the bush.    Today I’m high-fiving. Ted Kooser, Poet Laureate 2004-2006; the hyperlink from his name above will take you to five of his poems that you’ll enjoy- and you can meet the poet himself in the video below- 

And how, without further ado, my NaPoWriMo poem for today:


My jeans go on,

like anyone else

 one leg follows the other.

And then I start the day,

and the rest of the day follows,

and moving through the day,

one minute follows another,

until the hours grow legs of their own,

one following another,

following along that way,

until day follows day.
