An Anatomy Lesson

My name is Jamie Lee Hamann and I started sharing poetry articles back in 2013. Every year I share a poem a day in April.


The skin a seat, a throne, that holds our touch.

An epiblast the secret of dermis,

an embryo that's common among us,

the slightest touch upon our skin says much.

The mighty physics behind our eye's lens.

Incredible mobility of eye,

a tear to always follow our goodbye,

a rainbow from the light show refractions.

We are the muscle cell to move our frame,

the energy that lies within synapse

that pilots this complicated machine.

A model we build that's never the same.

While learning quiet during preschool naps

or living each day in daily routine.
