April Tanka #13

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

A Three Different Park Day

Three different Park Day

a day to compare swing height

or the quickest slides

Monkey Bar Challenge.


To spring into play

tangent as the main event

hear Ice Cream Truck song

plastic tunnel crawl


Spend an hour each park

end an hour with full speed spin

of tire on metal

mounted chain above


Stopped to watch ducks

who lived at Virginia Lake

Canadian Geese

and White Mother Goose


Played King of the Pack

oldest makes the youngest win

conqueror of slides

master of the bars


Hours this morning

maybe we'll spend the whole day

finding a new park

a plot of new land
