Love played hopscotch in front of us,

Behind us

On weekends, it teased from the side

Squares randomly disappearing


We bobbed, weaved and hopped

Skipped sideways

On invisible shapes

In constant motion

It wouldn’t let us in

Wouldn’t let us in

Until it did.

One thought on “Hopscotch

  1. Gosh, do kids today even know what hopscotch is, let alone play it? I have fond memories of my sister and I playing it in the driveway, drawn in the gravel with a stick and stones used for markers.
