I was away this weekend and ran into an issue posting to my blog from my iPhone. So… Here are my poems from day fourteen and fifteen. The first poem is a reflection on one aspect of my childhood.

~ Goonies

When you’re ten the world is
limitless, a never ending adventure
where the only barrier is bed time.
Saturday’s were for Explorers,
Scientists, and Wizards.
We packed out bags full of snacks
and sandwiches–PB&J.
Pocket knives, homemade walking sticks
and minds full of imagination,
we left for the woods, into
Uncharted Territory.
We were Goonies.

Egg shells on the steps
Hungry mouths waiting for worms
A flurry of wings.
