Over-achiever

Overachiever

The sun overachieved

when she provided light, warmth, direction, security and reassurance

to the solar system.

 

The moon overachieved

when it reflected, drew tides, cast shadows and fed poets

mottled metaphors.

 

The stars overachieved

when they gave Hollywood a reputation, grains of sand a run for their money,

and inspired the search for Graham’s number.

 

There’s a woman with blond hair, tall, blue eyes, imagination of a harlequin,

and an inclination to call herself

overachiever.

  1. Thanks for letting me know Susan. Some day in the next six months I’ll have to decide on which 40 poems to include in my next book of poems. I’ll be ruled by my gut, heart & brain – but what you like matters a lot to me
