365 Poems: Don't forget

Day 52

Today Robert Lee Brewer of Writer's Digest offers a poetry prompt that commands us to have fun:
For this week’s prompt, take the phrase “Don’t Forget (blank),” replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then, write your poem. Example titles might be: “Don’t Forget to Leave on the Light,” “Don’t Forget the Alamo,” or “Don’t Forget to Enjamb Your Lines.” I’m sure everyone will have fun with this one.
Don't Forget How to Imagine

How mundane are Mondays?
Also drives to work
and grocery shopping
rain showers
work meetings
doctor appointments
dirty shoes
my dog.

Easy to forget, Mondays.
Also the drive to work
and milk
my umbrella
meeting notes
not the dog.

Don’t forget to remember
how to get lost
to lose lists
dance in the sunshine
play hooky
dirty feet
marvelous abandon
new stories.

Don’t forget how to imagine.
