A Day Jumbled Together

Fifty stars and thirteen stripes waving

effortlessly in the wind.

Wind rushing past me

as the secrets dared to be more

than just a whisper.

Whispers evolving into the roar of a teacher saying stop running.

Running students become a stampede

fearing the one minute bell.

Bells ringing, sirens heard.

An emergency that goes unseen.

Unseen plastic bag dodging

Cars. Throwing itself like a ballet dancer across the street.

Streets turn into a classroom

where lovers wear wisdom (blue),

unplanned faith, trust and loyalty.
