Z is for…Zig-Zag! (#AtoZ)

Here is my latest post for the #AtoZChallenge for April 2022. My title and theme for this challenge is “Seriously Silly Poetry” in recognition of April being poetry month and also wanting to do something fun and playful to celebrate spring. I hope you enjoy this series.

A Zig-Zag Life

Life will zig. Life will zag.
Don’t hold on too tight, enjoy life’s zig-zag.

Life will wiggle. Life will wag.
It’s how it’s supposed to be, so don’t be mad.

Life’ll jig too then take a jag
It’s this way then that, just different, not bad.

For life’s lefts are alright.
And life’s rights are too.
Just keep on going,
It’s the thing to do.

When’ll we zig, wiggle, or jig?
Nobody knows.
When’ll we zag, waggle, or jag?
Guessing keeps us on our toes.

Sometimes are right for serious.
(like when something’s injurious)
Other times are right for silly.
(I’d argue more than many)

Life’s not always easy, but it’s full of surprise.
Always an adventure helping us become wise.

My advice is take life one day at a time.
Time moves that way anyway, so you’ll be always on-time.

And of course, enjoy every moment you can reading
seriously silly poetry — morn, day, and evening.

Did you enjoy this series? If yes, check out my new book Apples Eating Zebras and other seriously silly poetry where I’ve arranged each of these illustrated poems into a beautiful and fun 100-page book dedicated to the child in all of us. Details here.

Be well,
