At a poetry event held the other night I collaborated with three other adults to create these poems.  With a few seconds to write one line we laughed and played like children and wanted to write more.

"Not long ago
but very far away
a man wept
into the darkness"

"She never liked the sound of the word 'ointment'
it caused her upper lip to quiver
and shiver
until her massage appointment"

"In a deep, hidden hollow
the wind shook the leaves
causing the mossy, wet earth to envelope her heart
then the paramedics came"

"Tabitha flew the coop
but no one noticed
except Leo the dog
who noticed everything"
