Welcome to the joyride, ya’ll. Today is the the first Verseday of the year and I’ve chosen a simple little thing I’ve dusted off from a few contest entries ago.
Remember to send me your poems, and/or thoughts and comments on what you’re reading here. I’m so excited to begin!
I watched a robin take the sky today
Bright red breast striking blue cerulean,
a rocket cutting through air
That must be what it’s like to die.
Wing lifting, pounding rush.
Air swirling behind feather tip.
from the confines of earth and expectation
Like too-high clouds, out of reach.
A soul lifted.
