A Monday night at work

Sweeping cars in red and black

Moon rays falling in grey and silver

Cool wind blowing through the trees and many a tresses

Tired souls enjoying a smoke break

Aroma of maggi and parantha from the nearby shop

Some strolling inside the premises with their tea and coffee

And I watch this all unfold,

a typical Monday night at work.

Written for National Poetry Writing Month. 30 poems in 30 days. Take a good look outside your window. Spend a minute or so jotting down all the nouns you see outside. Tree. Car. Bus. Dog. Then spend a minute or so writing down all the colors you see. Finally, think about taking place outside. Is the wind blowing? “Blow.” Is someone walking their dog? “Walk.” Spend a minute or so writing down these verbs. Now you’ve got a whole list of words from which to build a poem, mixing and matching as you go.
