Weekend Writing Prompt ~ Get Up #wwp


You can live like a sloth in a faux idyllic way
Wasting the hours that make up your day
Instead pick a goal, then lift up your feet
And set out to conquer any activity
Be it a marathon that you’ve trained yourself for
Or a disorganized closet that’s become an eyesore
Perhaps connecting with an old friend or love
Or shampooing that long-neglected rug
The key to success should be turned to drive
Get yourself out of neutral and start feeling alive

Written for Sammi Cox’s Weekend Writing Prompt, where we are challenged to write a poem or piece of prose using the word “idyll” in exactly 84 words.
