Today’s prompt was to say hello, shalom, guten tag, bonjour, bonjourno, howdy!


Hello, alarm clock.
You seem to ring earlier.
May I please just sleep?

Good morning, sunshine.
You are up bright and early.
Forgive me for staring.

Hey there, traffic jam.
You winding pollution beast.
You’re always there for me.

Greetings, office chair.
My steady supporter.
I’ve put on a few pounds.

Bed, my dearest friend.
You may be showing your coils.
I am still in love.
