Poem: “Me and My Beau” by Y. Prior (part 2 is here)
The rain had stopped – and “Me and my beau”
looked up to see this Glow….
….. we both enjoyed it SO!
And on the patio
there was a song playing that I used to know….
oh – so long ago…
but I remembered parts – felt the rhythm – knew the flow.
I wanted to dance, just kinda slow –
my Beau joined for a second, but then said, “No…”
and rightfully so….
after all, we were on the patio.
Then down the block – we continued to stroll –
while lo and behold – there was a glowing NEON “O” –
Our walk continued to flow….
while we sipped some “iced mocha Jo”
and then noticed a sign that our city was about to grow:
A crane was there – emitting a vertical light show!
here it is in black and white- to show beam mixed with shadow:
And while Me and my Beau
enjoyed all this GLOW….
It was time to leave – we had to GO!
But ya know, we still took it slow
hand in hand –
on this simple stroll,
which I enjoyed so…
and my smile – well it had a soft – um, glow?
O I don’t know!
it was really just so-so….
but still something to savor – and bestow!
This is linked to where’s my backpack travel theme – Glow – and the poem is to celebrate a bit of National Poetry month.
~~ And a side note to the poetry police – this simple rhyme scheme is not trying to be the poem of the century – I just like to write my thoughts with basic elementary rhyme – if you are looking for deeper poetry – well you will not find it here…. peace out! ~~
