Blogger in a Really Annoying Land

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Blogger in a Strange Land” When was the last time you were out and about, and suddenly thought, “I need to write about this!”?

Voices . . .
hundreds of them
all shapes, sizes,
volumes and textures
Disturb my peace
Disquiet my impulse 
Perturb my bubble
of inspiration

What did I expect?
It’s a school theater production
300 seats, standing room only
hordes of relatives
basking in the brilliance
of their progeny

And so we wait . . .

for the house lights to go down
for the stage lights to come up
for the performance to start

And I,
cloaked in smugness
for remembering
to toss the spiral writing pad
into my purse
as we rushed out the door


to let the voices
of 300 loud, excited
utterly distracting
women, men, children

stop me

And I write this.
