UPDATE: As problems continue with the commenting, I've decided to open up a WD Forum thread for the first 7 days. Beginning with tomorrow's prompt, there will be prompt-specific threads linked to each post. Click here to share your poems/comments for the first 7 days.

Sorry for the late prompt today--stayed up a little late last night.

Today's prompt comes to us from Eleanore D. Trupkiewicz.

Here's Eleanore's prompt: Write a circular poem. It could be a poem about circles, or about a circular concept, or about something shaped like a circle. Or it could be a poem with a circular format, in which the end of the poem somehow connects directly back to the beginning of the poem.

Robert's attempt at a circular poem:

"Been Here"

Feels like I've been here before
with my head hidden under the covers
and wanting another hour or two.

Feels like I've been here before
rushing around to get lunches packed
and telling people what to do.

Feels like I've been here before
saying "goodbye, have a great day"
but wanting more time with you.
