Okay, here is today's contribution to the poetry train, hope you enjoy it. I have to run some errands but I'll be back to check out everyone else's poems.
The First Day
I stood in the doorway,
Making me jittery,
Okay that might have been the extra large
Frappaccino I’d had getting ready.
Looking down, I worried about
My clothes, would they understand
This summer uniform?
I had my gear beside me,
Everything I’d need for today.
I’d stayed up late planning
what to bring with me, what to wear.
The clock chimed.
It was time.
Grabbing my paperback in one hand,
My iced tea held securely in the other,
I opened the screen door
Stepping out onto my deck.
Settling into my long (long) neglected
Beach chair, I sat back with a sigh.
Let the vacation begin.
