#AtoZ Challenge Zonked


I could have gone for zest or zeal,
but it’s not the way I feel.
When I zipped through the dictionary
Zinnia appealed to me,
but I’m feeling too sleepy
though their blooms are sweet.
While Zirbanit and Zakuski
don’t mean a thing to me,
a poem about Zamite
would have been a treat
if I could work up the energy
to learn about Geology,
but now I want to snuggle up
with the weight off my feet.
So today’s word is zonked
and any minute now
I will fall asleep.

    1. What, the challenge? I don’t think so, though it’s hard to tell. I’m glad I did it, because of the poem Xenodochial -which, BTW, was inspired by your post about hiraeth. If it hadn’t been for me thinking about that I may never have figured it out. It’s not the first time you have inspired me.

      1. You’re just so open to EVERYTHING these days. You’re like a big deep well fillin’ up with fresh spring water. You amaze me what you come up with sometimes. And THEN you make a freakin’ poem out of it!
