Star Wars Poetry

This past weekend Rachael and I were at Kohl’s. She didn’t like the fact I kept staring at the family in line behind us. But I couldn’t help it. The young boy had a light saber that had extensions on the sides. Rachael told me it was the new design; don’t you remember seeing it in the trailer. No, not until she mentioned it anyway. I soooo want to be a kid again. Star Wars toys are way cooler now.

Cool new light sabers
My childhood left without
to be young at heart

The Wednesday poetry prompt @WritersDigest is to write a movie poem. Robert Lee Brewer wrote about Star Wars and I remembered this weekend’s shopping trip. Also Gretchen made her own light saber when we were in Disneyland this summer. They get to have all the fun. And all I have are fond memories of a Han Solo and Luke Skywalker without gray hair.
