I AM A SONIC BOOMER, NOT A SENIOR... In this blog, I am writing to and for those who believe that the Boomers will change what the word Senior means. I also believe that Boomers will change what retirement means in our society. The blog is also for those who are interested in what life after retirement may look like for them. In this blog I highlight and write about issues that I believe to be important both for Seniors and working Boomers.

Robert Lee Brewer has a poetry page and every Wednesday he posts a Wednesday Poetry Prompt! On May 3rd his prompt was to write a project poem. He said, “there are so many possible projects: write a book; plant a garden; train for a marathon; build a life-size Godzilla out of ice cream and toppings (and then, eat it!). I mean, this prompt projects a lot of possibilities.” He also posted his Project Poem, building a Patio. My poem is "the Fence" right below Mr. Brewers poem
it took an entire weekend to dig up the earth & smooth out the base & place the stones that weren’t exactly perfectly level but the three-person swing held an entire four-person family late into Sunday evening
Tearing down was easy, the lumber flew
The posts snapped to attention then fell on cue
Within minutes space occupied where there was a wall
They watched enthralled
As we moved the timber to the truck
And out of sight, soon with any luck
The first post hole soon was dug, the cement poured
Section one completed once we nailed in the boards
Within two hours the fence was completed
Drinking our lemonade we were not feeling cheated.
What project do you have that could be turned into a poem?
