Each Tuesday morning, I’m sharing a poem that’s fresh out of my head onto paper. No revisions. It’s an exercise to help me jumpstart my creative day and I was kinda hoping some of you might try it, too! If you do, please share.
It’s a game of hide and seek.
And this character is good at hiding.
I look for her as I drive down the street,
as I pick apples from our tree,
as I tear the lettuce for dinner’s salad.
“I will treat you well.”
This is the message I send her.
I won’t embarrass you. Though I may lead you down
the wrong path a time
And though I’ll put hurdles in yoru path
I’ll give you the strength and
legs long enough
to jump them.
I know you’re here somewhere.
The story needs you!
