Just a Driveway

By: Jillian Dunlay

Laughter chirps through my ears

A forever perfect


In this imperfect world


Sunshine frames the chalk lines

Every colorful streak

A reflection of my friends

A reflection of myself


Thriving in our child-like ways

Our imaginations soar

We gaze up above the trees

And make pictures in the sky


To the average passer-by

It’s just a driveway

Another puzzle-piece

In this mediocre neighborhood


But to me, it’s a place

where friendships were weaved

Tears were shed

Smiles were shared

And secrets confessed


It’s not

Just a driveway

It’s so much
