The Hood’s Stoop

Updated on January 30, 2014
Click thumbnail to view full-size

I sat on the stoop in the hood~

While a white plastic grocery bag alone blew by~

In the chilly winter early morn~

Rolling away low on the broken, cracked sidewalk~

Like a tumbleweed in a ghost town~

It soon disappeared in the distance~

Further down multitudes of roads~

With mish mashed homesteads~

As I still sat cold and alone on the stoop~

Pondering various places~

The tumble bag visited.

      Lisa Luv - just my kind of writing! This one caught my immediately - sometimes a picture tells a hundred words and the words did not disappoint either. Thank you.

      sallybea Thank you....I was away for a long time in the hood in contrast to my home environment taking care of an injured friend, so I was able to see a different world and could not wait to put some of my observations and thoughts down in writing....!!!!

      Amazing how a small amount of words can be so descriptive and conjure up an image. Well done.

      This reminds me of my childhood home. We saw the world from our front porch or stoop. Your share is touching.

      Gypsy Rose Lee I am so glad you could relate! I had the opportunity of sitting on the stoop in the hood while taking care of an injured friend for an extenuating time just recently....generally I sit on my porch in the country...So I was happy to experience a different view.. there might be more stooping experiences to write about in the future for me as well. THANK YOU!!!!!! Have a great day!!!!

      An interesting concept…could it simply be forgotten trash, the trash of society, or the trash that we all discard on a daily basis? Nice work, Lisa.

      Thank you so much aviannovice~~ It certainly made me ponder a lot...that one little tumble weed... LOL I constantly ponder things... I guess that goes with the territory of a writers mind. Have a great day!
