POETRY and PERSONAL POST: Breathless Break

Breathless Break

I see children sliding down a rich green slide,

While a blind boy plays piano with his mother by his side.

There’s buzzing, laughs, screams and cheeps,

As little brown birds hop around at my feet.


I feel the rays of golden sun as a breeze,

Swirls lightly around, I see dancing leaves.

As the music escalates, lingering laughs rise,

A pure level of delight, an atmosphere energised.

~ Hi fellow Writing and Education Enthusiasts!

It has been too very long, I must say. Not only have I missed the peaceful feeling of becoming immersed in writing and imagination, I have missed being here, as we support each others passions. I have been busy enjoying a much needed heavenly Summer, while I volunteer, work and see important members of my life. I hope you have all been well!

I am happy to say I am back for 2014! A year for traveling, studying, supporting, growing, exploring, and writing!

I hope you enjoyed my poem, Breathless Break, which was written in my lunchbreak outside, in this magical moment.


Sincerely Jody

    I like your poem. Write it or paste it in “text” mode if you want to make it single-spaced… (I finally learned that from another blogger a few weeks ago) –keep it up!!!
