Like everyone else, I am confined to my home for the last three weeks, and I am finding things to do that will keep me interested. One item I am anxious to partner with the new Discover Prompts, by Ben Huberman, going on until April 23rd. They are on day 4. and every day there will be a different prompt.Today the Prompt is “STREET” I had the best time writing this poem—it took my mind off the lockdown for a bit. Here it is:
On The Street By Paula Perron
I wish I lived on the street Where all our neighbors walk To greet them each and every day Then I could stop and talk.
I wish I lived on the street Where children always play I’d catch a ball with both my hands A strike that got away
I wish I lived on the street Where all is well and good And And life has meaning all the time But not ever in my neighborhood.
