The Great Bean Bag Ride of 2013

A poem, inspired by my children.



The Great Bean Bag Ride of 2013

S. L. Poulton


My sister held tight to her pink

lumpy bean bag.

I held on

for the ride of my life.

Racing down the halls

Around the corner



Onto the tiles, a wonderful spin.

Through the kitchen

And the open door

Down the stairs

Thump thump thump.


Sister’s hand twitched under the bean bag

As I lifted my head,

“Are you ok?”

A fist rose in triumph

Followed by the laugh of a lifetime.

I will never forget the bean bag ride of 2013.
