Anything is possible with a smile and goal in mind.


The grip of the breeze, the smell of charcoal,
a memory drifting on by, sitting on
an icy bench.
Little girls in flowered dresses,
mothers chasing strident sons,
skies dimmed by over grown trees.
Across the street the rhythmic drops
of a basketball tangle with laughter;
The second sin all too consuming.
Throwing back a stray ball and
brushing a skimmed knee.
Your tobacco smell is in, on, everything;
fleeting sounds, fighting, struggling, to
be heard.


The author's comments:
I wrote this poem for my creative writing class. I don't like giving away the meaning behind my poetry because I feel it ruins the whimsy of it for the audience. Plus, I love hearing the readers thoughts on the meaning.

Wow! I like this! 

I really like how you've made the sounds sound as though they are desperate to be heard. It makes the whole memory seem like a living creature.

There is no line between genius and insanity, I erased it.

Violence isn't the answer, it's the solution.

I like the hidden meaning behind it and the up close meaning that anyone can find! Keep writing.
