Thank you to Sheri Jacobs for the poetry challenge. The idea was to create a poem along the lines of the poet William Carlos Williams’ apology poem (This Is Just To Say) as seen below:

I have eaten
the plums
that were in
the icebox

and which
you were probably
saving
for breakfast

Forgive me
they were delicious
so sweet
and so cold _
William Carlos Williams

My poem

Just So You Know

I have opened
the blind,
though you like to
rest in the dark

and might
require more
beauty sleep
before noon.

Forgive me,
the umbrella plant
on the ledge
needed sun.
