Chalk It Up To Poetry

She grabbed a thick stick of periwinkle blue chalk,
and drew large zig-zagged arrows where people would walk.
She hid far away out of plain sight
and watched, laughing with impish delight
as folks looking tipsy, tried to follow her silly chalk-walk.

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.

    Oh, I love this!
    During the lockdown in 2020, our neighborhoods got crazy-fun with the chalk. Lots of encouraging messages, hopscotch, and chalked hope. 🙂
