Spring Break

Spring break school girls
are unified in their decision
to take Spring break in 
Florida.  What fun to lie
on soft sand, jet-ski, 
and not have to run 
on a schedule.  On-line
schooling made concentration
hard.  Stealing away 
from bad news that sprayed
on them like acid rain.  
Escape being caught 
in the middle of local 
scandals, and not,
for a second, think of
returning home.

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.

    Nice use of the words! I read a lot of schools cancelled spring break, which made the students quite angry. I don’t think I’d want to go to Florida for a while anyway. Don’t trust their virus conditions. But, a get-a-way? I’m ready!

    The carefree days of youngsters would best be allowed to go on as long as they could. It would have been fun, fun throughout!. That’s what they would have wanted, Sara!
