Poetry Thursday



It is Poetry Thursday once again

When Sam and Teddy challenge my brain

By giving me a photo to inspire me

Then writing it down for the world to see





I think back on my youth, those sun-filled days.

There were friends and many games to play

We would go on swings, climb on bars

Play astronaut and drive the race car


No matter what we played, we would declare a winner

Just before we all went home for dinner.

There was no pressure to win

And I was the best at a game called spin.


A dozen of us would stand on the horseless merry go round

The big kids would spin us, and our shouts made quite the sound

They were joyful shouts of glee

We would never again feel so free


I was best at spinning.

Which I always ended up winning

Not by who could stay on the longest

Or who could push the most and be declared the strongest


It was the furthest and not by time

But using an old clothesline

They measured how far from my playful comet

That I could projectile vomit.
