Maybe poem?

So this morning, with utter shock and horror, I remembered. That I forgot to write a poem last week. O_O O_O O_O I might have come up with something though... I went through all my emails and took things I wrote during the week and made sentences into a poem. I really have no idea if it works or if it even sounds like a poem....?

I woke up this morning and looked outside...
It was snowing.
We only have half an inch now,
that's okay with me.
No shoveling yet!

It's so beautiful.

I really don't want to have missed a week though, that would be horrible :(

Sometimes you find the poem if you strip the language down to the bones.

Clever Dad! I was going to try to explain that same idea. I like the how you took things from your e-mails and things. Poetry should definitely come from whatever is going on in your life.
