My Longest Love Affair

when the sidewalks
come to life
with lovers wrapped
around each other
secret smiles and
kisses everywhere
spring is in the air
and I fall for
the magic
of this place
all over again


April is National Poetry Month and to celebrate, I’m going to post a poem everyday. I’m way behind schedule, but intend to amend that state of being today. This exercise in my love of words began last year, inspired by the wondrous Jason Reynolds and my writing promptress Jena Schwartz. It was fun and full of magic and makes me so excited to see what pieces 2017 produces. They won’t be perfect, they never are, but they’ll be here, every day of April. I hope you stop by and enjoy the words and maybe even feel moved to share some of your own.
