Wednesday's Writings: making faces

Another linky party post. This one is for Mama Kats Writer's Workshop. You should do it, it's a lot of fun!

Number 5: write a poem about your favorite place.

buying the tickets
planning the trip
driving the miles

renting a room
changing my clothes
waiting in line

pushing way forward
getting hand stamped
running down stairs

breathless with anticipation
giddy with joy
heart thumping wildly

lights go down
crowd surges ahead
chanting, pounding, jumping

stars in eyes
back-stage dreams
front-row reality

my fave place
at a concert
with Phoenix headlining



in las vegas Sept '10. that's me making a weird face. found this on a las vegas news site. was totally shocked to say the least!!


relax,
paulina

Sounds like tons of fun! I can tell you had a great time and what a sweet spot right up front and caught on camera! How exciting!

Thanks everyone! I'm glad you liked it :) I'm also glad that the excitement came through, I was lucky enough to see them 8 times during their last tour - and it never got old!!

You really captured the moment here! I love this part:
stars in eyes
back-stage dreams
front-row reality
Glad to meet another blogger who loves to write! Let's follow each other!
