The Mighty Sticky Post
Blue, lemon yellow, bright as it sticks
I can’t live without.
In front of my eyes, it bears my thoughts
It cradles a new direction.
Ideas important, essential. My Lifeline
Pinned before they drift away.
It waits for moments of clarity
A reminder nagging.
Locked, stark, it shouts the words
I nod. I hear. I think.
One after another tumble in
It captures every drop.
I contemplate each one attentive.
I cringe cranky only when, at a loss,
I realize I’ve run out.

Ode to the ‘sticky note’! I tell ya, I could not agree more with this piece of prose! In my home, you can find them adhered to the walls, all major appliances, my back splash, cupboards, table, mirror, husband and @ least one of my children! 😉
I cannot live without them…. constant reminders of ‘my forgetfulness’! How sad it is! How sad it is!!!!
Ha ha. I think I’ve seen all of them, even the one on your husband. 🙂 Brilliant invention indeed.
Hahahah! Only you could write an elegant poem on sticky notes! Cute, Paula 🙂 B.
Ha thanks for “elegant.” But you can’t deny you’ve used one or two in your lifetime. Even the most composed writer/artist needs a bright reminder from time to time. Wish I came up with them.
Love it! 🙂 I used to have them stuck to my computer monitor when I was a more active writer. I eventually had to start putting things in an excel spreadsheet because I was losing sight of my screen. I do remember the frustration of running out of them because it was always at the wrong time.
Ha. Nice to hear you can relate. They truly are a wondrous companion to have. Though I probably should start remembering things on my own before I…can’t. 🙂 thanks for the comment.
