Secret Powers

Written for:  Imaginary Gardens With Real Toads – Just One Word:  Dynamite
(posted by Marian)

She is a dynamite girl
hour-glass figure, auburn curls.
Most popular in her school
The other girls feel drab near Jewel.

The boys all stare from afar
Afraid they are not up to par
No one knows that Jewel is smart,
science whiz that can break your heart.

She knows how to make explosives.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
