Bonnie’s Heart



Dirt road dreams
of faraway places
happy days,
and cuddling
polar bear faces.

Blue sky wishes
of walking on the moon,
flying off to Paris,
and writing
poetry to make hearts swoon.

Green grass reality
isn’t quite that life;
raising four kids,
hating celery,
but I love being Tommy’s wife.

    1. Thank you, Sara. When I first read the prompt I wasn’t sure how it would all fit together. But…once I made my list of words, it kind of all fell together. 🙂
