44839: Poetry From a Zip Code (2017)

In the 2017 anthology of 44839: Poetry From a Zip Code, there was another poem that this pedometer geek had selected. It is called “Word Play.” This pedometer geek shares it now.

Word Play

“There’s a poem in that,” we often say

after we banter about something that caught our attention.

Bouncing ideas off each other, sparking the imagination,

taking it one step further

until one takes word to paper.

For it is the interaction, the word play, the time together

that is important.

The poems are just an added plus.

~Nancy Brady

44839: Poetry From a Zip Code was published by Drinian Press, LLC in conjunction with the city’s Poet Laureate program, which is administered through the Huron Public Library. So far, Huron has had five Poets Laureate. The program began in 2009 with Larry Smith as the first Poet Laureate. He was followed by Rob Smith, Rob Ruble, and Joel Rudiger. The current Poet Laureate is Robert Reynolds, who was appointed in 2018.



About pedometergeek

A pharmacist by profession, a haiku poet by nature, I read and write. I have a book of haiku, Ohayo Haiku, and another somewhat alternative haiku book, Three Breaths, but write other genres. I also read...lots of novels! My favorite is, and remains, Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged but I am also a big Harry Potter fan. I truly am a pedometer geek strapping on my pedometer as soon as I awaken.

    Perhaps one’s muse would find this ‘amusing’ šŸ˜‰
    Since I’m the only ‘poet’ in my family – I often banter with myself šŸ™‚

  2. Don’t we all? I do have another poet in the family, but still sometimes a stray remark can trigger a poem. šŸ˜‰
