A to Z on a Plate - O

Today is day 15 of the A to Z Challenge.  I've photographed and alphabetized vanity plates from our local area in Maine, and am writing poems to go with one for each letter of the alphabet - plus and extra on Sundays, since it is National Poetry Month and I'm committed to writing a poem a day for April.  I am also linking to Margaret Simon's challenge to write a poem in response to a picture each day.  Most pictures are a bit more "picturesque" than mine, but it is still a picture!

It is also the 18th day and 18th line for the Progressive Poem, the brainchild of Irene Latham.  The newest line is here at her very own site today!  Visit Irene at Live Your Poem.

I had my sights set on O2GO2C, and ONWORDZ.  I had fits and starts.  I had nothing.  I was tired.  I went to bed.  I woke up.
O was still a problem.
An Odious Problem.
An Ornery Problem.
Onerous, Offensive, Obtuse, Octagonal.
Okay, not Octagonal.
O2 just write something that made some sense....
OK to the rescue.


Is it okay
To feel today
Like I have nothing
More to say?
I hope it is
For here I stall,
No more to give,
I’ve given all.
