This morning's prompt was to write a love poem and an anti-love poem. Easy prompts the last couple of days.

Miss You Mornings

I miss you mornings
wake up alone in bed
imagine you teaching,
struggling to get kids
on track, wanting them
to care as much as you
do about what they learn.
I love how you struggle,
how much you care,
love that you choose
to teach school instead
or wake lazy in my bed.
I miss you mornings.

Hollywood Love

Hollywood love
is cut flowers.
Bright, fragrant
short lived
Me, I'd rather
plant a tree.
