4 Haiku about a tomboy changing

 

 

I tackled them all

small boys, fast boys, big boys; had

to, being a girl

 

 

I knew things had changed

they stayed on top too long; no

more tackle football

 

 

it was frightening

boys just got bigger; but for

girls, everything changed

 

 

fake fever, chills, aches

way too sick to go to school

monthly, like clockwork

    A difficult time encapsulated skilfully and sensitively. The more I read of your poetry, the more I am convinced that your life cries out for expression in an autobiography or screen play. Something to think about? Maybe? 🙂

      Oh, thanks Ron! I’ve actually written an autobiography…it’s in a slow re-write. Will email you details about it. Thanks so much for your comments…as always, they mean more than thanks can express.

        Ahhh…I vaguely remember now…….Seems like Tanya had edited it for you…if I’m remembering correctly, which is highly doubtful! Would love to read whatever you are comfortable sharing. 🙂
