Enigma Weekend Edition Poem: "I Wake Up" by Ian Herr

"I Wake Up"
By Ian Herr

I wake up
out my window
the sun shines

I leave my bed
grab my favorite ball
the old
beat up
outdoor ball

It’s the perfect day
no wind
I call my friends
they come over fast
and a game begins

Shouts and laughs
echo throughout the driveway
the pounding of the ball
against concrete
is heard everywhere
in the cul de sac

I throw the ball
to an open friend
and soon hear the satisfying swish
of the ball

sliding through the net
