I Wrote a Poem Today

   Posted by: Moses Siregar III   in My Work, Poetry

Stopping

Why do I fear the summer sky?
Childhood sweethearts, laying down on the trampoline in her back yard, did not.
That boy Moses walked the moist Georgia grass and removed shoes,
drifted beside an angel and embraced the wispy white.

All this heaven, present, majestic.
Natural, God-lit, Sunday’s best.
To gaze and rest my eyes,
to fly.

really nice…..why ‘sweethearts,” then the singular “her’ only thing that bumped…

Thanks Clara. I understand why it bumped, but it’s two sweethearts, but the trampoline only belongs to one of them 🙂 I’ll consider a tweak.
