World of Blocks

“World of Blocks”

–Amy Engle


National Poetry Writing Month 2017 Poem #27


Piles of colored bits lay scattered about the carpet.

Careful steps are taken in bare feet around loose blocks.

A hangar here, a garden there, a bathroom at the corner.

Yellow-faced people are posed performing their tasks.

Nearly completed vehicles wait to be fitted with wheels.

Plastic animals are tended to–a horse, snake, and shark.

Slowly but surely, the world of blocks is constructed.

Hours pass and creative energies form the Lego Land.
