I’ll wait here.

Roller skating poetry prompt #21

Ungraceful

by Valeri Beers

I want

the

music

speed.

To dance

on

wheels
Look at me

I want

to skate

with

my girl

I don’t want

to be

a
wallflower.

I

rolled rather

ungracefully
from

here to there.

Earth poetry prompt #22 (rough draft)

I
don’t like
your cousin,
Mother Nature.

She made
it snow
too much.
It’s
STILL cold
out.

Can
Summer
come out
&
play?

car race poetry prompt #18

It
was ugly
but
it
won.

Start to finish
it dominated.

It
was all
him.
Last minute
adjustments.

Judges
watching
talking
debating
