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

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

-Kim Johnson
