Doodle Dream

Day 8 – Writer’s Digest April 2016 PAD

For today’s prompt, write a doodle poem. In my mind, I’m thinking of how I like to doodle when I’m talking on the phone or sitting in a meeting. I used to doodle in my classes when I was younger. So for a poem, I’m thinking this could start off as something small that stays small or builds to epic proportions. Doodle around a bit today. If needed, start by describing something close at hand or within your current field of vision.

Doodle Dreams

All my life I have wanted to be able to

take pen in hand a draw things … anything

I envy the experienced doodlers who can

draw anything at will while sitting in class

a meeting, talking on the phone, or just

for the hell of it whenever they choose


I doodle … kind of …

I can draw a 3-D box

A star without lifting my pen

Hearts … who can’t

But nothing cute like a

buzzing bee or a flower

waiting for the bee


Adult coloring books

have saved my life…

Someone did the amazing

doodles and I get to

color them in to my

heart’s delight …


So for all of you amazing

doodlers out there …

I tip my hat and look

over your shoulder in

that boring meeting to

live vicariously through

the pen in your hand …
