Goalposts – Project 27

A new Project 27 Poem!

Greetings! Another Project 27 poem for you here. Not sure what I’m at by now 😉 Probably more than 27. Today’s poem is named Goalposts.



Here I stand

I can go no further.

Well, literally not, there’s a swamp of mud

between me and the net.

Sweat pouring down my neck

waiting for the ball to roll closer

through the mob of children kicking, shoving,

falling onto the damp grass.

I squint, eyes narrow.

Arms spread, knees shaking, praying

Please don’t shoot

Defense fails

the sweet, terrifying thwack

of a hard kick.

Dead center.

Can’t miss.



Project 27 – Instant

Today’s Short Project 27 Poem

Today’s Poem


At once

This instant

lasts and yet doesn’t

stretch onward to infinity but rather

simply is there until

like a butterfly’s heartbeat

it’s gone without a sound.

Project 27 – Snapshot

Check out my latest poem.

Today’s Poem.


I take the photo.




Out slides the instant film.

A curiosity, attention grabbing, new-fangled thing

“Take my picture!”

Contrasting reds and blues, hues of green

Deep looks into eyes

that you never



What do these snapshots reveal?

What do these brief windows show?

Childhood ebbing

Drawing close to the end

but holding on perhaps

for one more summer day.

Project 27 – Scared

Enjoy this new Project 27 Poem – Scared.


Walls looming in
Children loom close
Loud, unfriendly
Your hand reaches out.
To grab hers
and pull close.
Safety in numbers.

Project 27 – Grown Up

A new Project 27 Poem – Grown Up

Greetings! Another Project 27 poem for you here. Been thinking a lot about how many of my students are faced with so many choices at a young age and don’t realize how easily others can influence them. It’s a bit terrifying how social media and the like can worm their way into a child’s mind, regardless of the efforts of well meaning parents. Anywho, onto the poem, make of it what you will, as usual!

Project 27 – Eight Dollars

Another poem for Project 27 – Eight Dollars

Salve! Happy snow day to all of you on the American Eastern Seaboard discovering that spring does not yet equal warm weather, as Mother Nature decides “I haven’t really thrown a good snowball this season.”

Regardless, I found some time to do a ton of spring cleaning (Oh hi, dining room table, haven’t seen you in ages!), and this poem struck me mid clean. Another one to add to Project 27, so hope you enjoy.

New Poem for Project 27 – Medic.

Greetings! It’s been a while since I added to Project 27 – definitely been a bit slammed with finishing Laurel Emperor. But here’s the latest entry. As always, constructive criticisms or questions are always welcome. This isn’t really for anyone else, rather just for me.
