30 Day Poetry Challenge – Day 29 – Shifting Clouds


30 Day Poetry Challenge – Day 29: Malapropos of what? – A malapropism is the use of an incorrect word in place of a word with a similar sound/appearance. For instance, “candy stripper” instead of “candy striper,” or “optical conclusion” instead of “optical illusion.” Take one of the poems you’ve already written for the #30dpc and replace some of your words with words that sound or look similar, but have different meanings.


I’m not sure what’s going on with this one! I played around with Drifing Clouds. But hey! It’s Day 29!

Shifting Clouds

Do not forget your schemes.
Look at your sighs,
adjust your watch on your wrist,
and see the clouds
shifting into sour grapes.
Allow yourself to be like these clouds,
and you will never be insane.
File a stranger away – miss someone
you love – treat ice cream with a Tuesday –
give a quiet complication.
Your life is a collage of youthful moments.
The Universe loves you
but forgets to call.
