Day 22 - OctPoWriMo 2013: Mr. Right




Today's prompt was titled “A Picture Paints a Thousand Poems.”  We were to choose a photo and use it as inspiration for poetry.

Mr. Right

Looking for Mr. Right
The one to teach me
How to be a man

To walk tall and proud
Beside me
In this life

Looking for Mr. Right
To step up
To be the Dad I need

  1. Nice! Clean clear lines. I especially like the middle stanza. I also appreciated that you twisted the usual connotation of Mr. Right from the romantic to the familial.
