OctPoWriMo Day 3 -Lack of Energy - haiku

Using today's prompt for this athlete has no energy and this is told in 17 syllables. Felt that would be symbolic as well for the writer when has little energy but still wants to put out a good product.

No Energy
Limbs will not function
Mind will not allow moving
No race won today.

OctPoWriMo 2015 - Day 2 - Running

When I saw today's prompt about hitting the ground running, I stopped right there - no more prompting needed, and I read no further.  Now, I don't think that the author meant the prompt to mean to write about running - but that is what I did and here is that poem.


It may be for fun
Could be to survive
Or to feed the need to
Satisfy a competitive urge

Arms and legs move in tandem
Speed ranging slow to fast
Thrills, exahuastion, exuberance
Just begin to tell of emotions felt

Humans are truly blessed
To have this ability
Given to them for use
In any manner they see fit.

OctPoWriMo 2015 - Day 1 - Cloud acrostic

Decided at 9:30 on day 1 to try this again this year.  Read the prompt for an acrobatic of "cloud".  Had an idea to tie it to sports so here goes:

The Dreaded Cloud

Certainly this won't happen again
Lessening the chance to play our game
Overcast skies are always gloomy
Undercutting our desire to play
Draining our energy to compete
