The Lazy Poet?

For this week’s paint-chip poetry prompt, Linda is having us choose one of the paint chips below and write a poem of exactly 31 words. The next prompt will be released on Friday morning, and here it is Thursday night, so I guess I’ve been a lazy poet. 🙂 I chose the phrase, “lazy lizard.” This little piece is based on a true story.


Greenish-brown long-tailed lizard
Waiting on the cobblestones
Before my front door:
So still, I wonder
If it is possible for it
To move — so I poke it,
And lazy lizard scurries!
