PlayScape poetry

The following poems were inspired by the sounds of the school yard. I have more and will put them in a little chapbook soon. Enjoy, and feel free to leave a comment. I like those a lot.


Playscape poetry:
by Ieisha McIntyre

#1
Swish-roar of traffic
cars and people on their way going
or coming from something or not.
I’ve wondered and lost.
But here is this roar-swish and
a window down
children laughing
part-time custody parent,
holiday
with burgers -
fries on the side and
a promise of shakes later.


#2
Seagull, gull, gull  soar-oar
drift-ift on thah-ah-ah
wind-ind
and let-et sun-un
unfurl the day upon-on
your wings-ings-ings.


#3
Thump-thump children on plastic slides
giggling-balance between
childhood fantasy and growing - too big discoveries
of can’t fit and got stuck.
Lifetime to learn and lean.

The Coming Close of Summer

Hello.  I know that if you are one of the readers who got to know me through READWRITEPOEM, then you are probably going through the same withdrawal from that wonderful community that I am.  I took more of a break from my blog than I thought I would.  I have had quite an amazing May through Aug. So many new opportunities and people have come into my life and I am truly grateful for them all.  I know that my writing and my art will forever be changed by having had the experiences of that past few months.  I will place a video up soon on my youtube channel with some backstage moments from DOUBT.  I also hope to put up a few more spokenword videos as well.  So far I only have one up.  Feel free to take a look and comment about Opening for Adam Falkner @ UWT . Oh yeah, and I'll place a sample of my playscape poems up before the close of tomorrow as well.  Blessings to you all!
