Work worn

Car weary

traffic tired

made more

than worthwhile–

by chubby arms

outstretched,

toddling steps,

toward

Grandma.

  1. Love this! Yes, I imagine those “toddling steps” make so many things worthwhile.

    “Toddling steps toward Grandma.” I love the way you broke this up so it even looks and sounds like a toddler’s footsteps. So good!

  3. I’ve been exploring poetry sites and resources as I get ready for April (National Poetry month) and a unit on poetry writing. Your poem is so perfect!!! I can’t wait to share it with my class, especially because they have met you, the poet!
