We Dance

We’re all just sitting
Shifting uncomfortably
Waiting.
Then comes a loud crash
And it all comes down at once.
I start running out side so fast
You’d think it was diamonds that were falling,
Not simple liquid.
Steam rises from the sidewalk
from the cool rain
And the warm day.
Meeting on the pavement
Like a greeting.
And I start dancing.
The wet grass
Now sparkling like jewels,
Tickles my bare feet.
And I can’t think of anything
More amazing.

Short and sweet. You did a great job of creating an image in the reader's mind. I love to see that :)

This was beautiful, short, simple, and well-worded, your emotions came through very clearly.

This poem is so simple, yet it says so much. that is what peotry is all about, saying more with less. I think that this was a great concept.
