Writing 201: Poetry. I really do love this course. I love the freedom of the course, and how it stretches my mind. I have to try not to be cheesy, and make my poetry original. Today’s assignment continues in the path of great challenges.
Neighborhood. Ballad. Assonance.
Step outside to a warm, sunny day
Kids running to and fro
Shrieking and laughter. Fraggle Rock after
Inside for the lunch time show
Bike rides outside as cars whip past
You hope you don’t get hit
Kids day dream on the hilltop scene
Grass green and banana splits
Summer days and sunshine rays
This barbecue chicken is good!
Someone get this dog out the street
This is my neighborhood.
