Here is my most recent poem. I wrote it in a journal prompt. It’s about summer and with Memorial Day coming, I thought I would share it with you. Enjoy!
My shirt is a warm ocean with water stains on it.
My seat feels like a kiddy pool while my shower turns on. I stare
At the crystal blue lake, craving a splashdown.
There isn’t any wind and I draw closer and closer
To closing my heavy binoculars and drifting off to
A much cooler place. Kids are frolicking through the
Rain or jumping into the pool. My walker, which is colored
With a sky-blue paint sits idly in front of me as I drift off
Into a quiet, cool place. I suddenly smell a charcoal aroma
And feel a breeze as the steamy sizzle of the hamburgers and
Hot dogs calls us to dinner.
