Poetry challenge from Sarah J. Donovan – using the Tim O’Brien book The Things
They Carried as today’s inspiration, write a poem about something you carry.

I got inspiration for this as I was running the Atlanta Women’s 5k and thought about my feet carrying me.

Pounding Pavement

that pound early morning pavement
carry eyes
that see more beauty
than feet that don’t.

-Kim Johnson
