Memories flicker 'round her head
of new yellow rain slicker,
rubber boots to match, pulled on…
body bends, doubles over,
soars for the big
laughter bubbles, bursts,
body quivers, arms flap,
skips along, unrestricted.
upon this joyous bouquet
of youthful frivolity
as he jumps again, and again…
This is linked with "Imaginary Garden with Real Toads - Let's Go to the (Silent) Movies" This is a reworking of a poem I wrote in April 2012. I finally did throw this away, just don't have the space for it in my closet - the boots were worn through and the jacket beyond "give-away" status. He is only six - still not to old for a raincoat. I might just buy him another today.
For the month of April, I am participating in NaPoWriMo2014 or National Poetry Writing Month. The website is HERE.
In celebration of this year's challenge, I will be giving away a free book of my poetry. If you are interested in participating in this drawing, please click the red logo at the top of my side bar and leave your name and a means to reach (blog, email, etc) you in the comment section.
PLEASE INDICATE YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE IN THE DRAWING OR I WILL ASSUME YOU ARE JUST COMMENTING. THANKS.
