Sturdy Blue (2022 NaPoWriMo #16)

May might be here but I’m still working through the NaPoWriMo – 30 Poems in 30 Days prompts since I discovered them late.

Prompt 16

Write a curtal sonnet.

Sturdy Blue

I admire your humble form so sturdy and blue
Your utilitarian curves gently round
A simple receptacle always at the ready
Patiently awaiting, dressed in your hospital hue
When the toilet is too far to be found
And trying would make one too dizzy and heady

I admit I was hesitant the first time
Worried I’d place you wrong and unsteady
But you eased right under solid and sound
Your functional form a perfect design
Always ready

Be well,
