The Meaning of Adventure

There is nothing
like a backyard
campout, where every
sound is a bad guy
or a bear, where you feel
spiders and snakes
that aren’t there,
and where you don’t really care
as long as you have
snacks and a good flashlight.


F. John Sharp lives and works on Northeast Ohio. His stuff can be found at FJohnSharp.com. and he is looking forward to the day Dale starts the journal, One Word Poems, because some days I don’t feel like working any harder than that.
