I had the image of a trampoline in my head and turned the imagery into a poem today. Have you ever had a word get stuck in your head?
A Trampoline of Words
I bounce on a trampoline of words,
My bare feet hitting the surface like the point of a pen and
Dipping down to start etching the words are my toes –
Before they spring fast into the air as I bounce above
With each jump the words bounce from all sides of me,
Consonants and letter ‘I’s without the need for
Anything else. My mouth opens and a
Glorious noise escapes, followed by laughter
While the sunshine heats up my lounge chair
Waiting patiently at the side for me.
