Mindlovemisery Menagerie ~ Wordle #288 ~ #Poetry

I imagine that most boys play at being a pirate
Tying a bandana around their forehead
As I walk the same footpath today
My thoughts sway back to when I played the same game
Searching for the treasure I believed to be beneath the pavilion
I confess to digging there, hoping to find a sapphire
That I would make into a necklace for my sister
These days, I volunteer as a drama teacher
Hoping to stir young minds, helping them believe 
in the possibilities they imagine…
