Our Short Walk

Our Short Walk

short walk










When first we met across the street, a walk

away from where I lived, a short distance,

the deli where I ate and we would talk.

A time I was alone, an existence

I accepted with open arms and heart,

with no idea that I could rearrange

or give this life, my world, a second start,

to hold a leaf and see each pattern change.

We moved forward without schedule or plan

and saw the seasons change inside our world,

to move with every tide as it recedes,

to stay within our warmth without the sun,

to hold our ground as firmly planted wood,

and see our joy as it soon sprouts from seeds.

Things have changed over the years. My name is Jamie Lee Hamann and I have a passion for writing short fiction and poetry. I started writing for TCE around 2015 and since then I have finished two collections of poetry "Six Years of Service" and "The Rhyme of the Ancient Middle Class" both available on Amazon and plans for more. I share a weekly poem for TCE every Saturday. I started work on my first novel and I am using TCE to share my progress as I go. I share new excerpts of this work every weekend. A Science Fiction novel that I hope is enjoyable to read. I currently live in Lemmon Valley NV with my family. I am excited to share my poetry and my writing. If you desire to find my other work on the internet feel free to stop by my website simplepoetics.weebly.com. The website offers articles on poetry, poems, and links to all my other writing.
