Punk kid in skull cap
Jogging mommy in pink fleece
Ipod cords for both
How do you like my Haiku? It seem to be the only poetry I can actually do. And it gives me something to occupy my brain with on my runs- something other than To Do lists.
I wrote this particular piece when I was running down my street the other day. The high school had let out and the kids were walking home. I was feeling a little bit old as I ran past a few packs of mostly boys. Luckily it was boys and not girls with pony tails or I would have worried more about how my thighs looked in Under Armour tights. Anyway, I got a nod from one particularly punk looking kid. He was the type that didn't appear to smile at much, but he recognized our matching Ipod cords and I got a nod. I was so excited! The best part was I was listening to Green Day at the time and not Tony Bennett's Greatest Hits!
