The Hood’s Stoop

Updated on January 30, 2014

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.

      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!

      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.

      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!!!!

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

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

      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....!!!!

      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.
