Let Me In

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 – July Covid-19 P.A.D. – Day 12
“Back To The Gym”

We’re heading back to the gym. Today we are lifting weights (waits). So prepare to bulk up on your rhyme, because we’re writing a “waiting” poem. Or if you choose, an “uplifting” poem (we can surely use one about now!) Either way, I am here to pump you up!

Let me back in
to the gym. I am
near to fearing
that I have forgotten
how to use the equipment.
Not motivated at home,
though the chair exercises
are immediately at hand.
Even the boringness
of the treadmill would
suffice. Gym is reliable
for icy temperature,
a welcome break from not
having air conditioning
for the past few days.
My Mind feels hazy as the
heat outdoors. Let me
back in. Please!

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.
