Putting My Feet in the Dirt 2

Hurrying trying not be late

I don’t want to make them wait

The weather’s cold, there’s even snow

But I am ready to go

Layers with my jacket of fleece

A long heavy scarf to ward off sleet

I travel down to the corner to wait

Told them I’m ready for our date

Nothing too exciting as a rule

A soccer game at the school

Weather in spring can be nasty

Shouldn’t be out here, was too hasty

Should have waited inside where it’s warm

Not sugar or salt so there’s no harm

It’s only a senseless sacrifice

Chilling and watching the sidewalk ice.


May Writing Prompts
