#NationalPoetryMonth – Day 20



if I step outside
and narrate us
like some third person
with commentary
and critique
our lives laid bare
for digestion
and analysis
I know how
it will go down:
I will cock my head to the side
my eyes see every detail
my ears hear each sigh
my soul feels all
and I will smile
because wrapped around
each other
we are simple
and undeniable
we are wondrous

April is National Poetry Month and even though I’m woefully behind on my goal to post a poem each day, I’m still enjoying myself. 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.
