Just to Write

I need a rhyme
But not just to pass the time.
I need word play
To say I wrote today.

Installed a new app on my smartphone;
I have many skills I need to hone,
And talents too long
Under bushel banished.

The app tracks goals.
Completed all but one today.

Practiced banjo,
Trumpet,
Marching baritone,
Euphonium;

Road several miles
On a road bike;
Lifted weights
When I couldn’t repair the flat.

And all I lacked was this,
And had but a quarter hour
Or the day would get a red x.
