Thursday Prompt: You Can't Have It All

Listing poems have a nice rhythm to them, I think, and a ready-made layout. I love the idea of a recipe poem from life--these are the beautiful things, or the hard things, or the things I can only wish for myself or someone else.

Today's prompt is to write a listing poem. Check out You Can't Have It All by Barbara Ras, a lovely, sensory version of what I'm talking about.
Feel free to leave a link in the comments to your own take on this prompt! I will come back each Thursday with a new prompt, in hopes to give motivation to myself and maybe others.
