Rolling On a Ramp

Poetry Jam


Ramps, inclines and just rolling up
Steps, stairways, and just step up
                                                 Bumpy rides
                                                 smooth glides
                                                                     take the first step
                                                                     step up two by two
                                                                                                  steps as wheelchair barrier
                                                                                                   exercise for those who push
Getting a ramp may be the first step
                                 using the ramp the second step
                                        planning to go is fun by far but the third step is the car
                                                                                                                  that third step
                                                                                                                        is looking
                                                                                                                       mighty big
                                                                                                                      who forgot 
                                                                                                                     this  anyway
                                                                                                  must have been me, what can I say
                                                                                                  where there is a will there is a way
                                                                                                           that step is for another day
Today we 'll make a mess and play
This step is for TODAY


  1. Ha, ramps are definitely a way to avoid taking the steps! Smiles.

  2. I love the way you made steps in your poem, nice creative outlay.

  3. that step is for another day - I like it, build for another day and take that step into tomorrow

  4. i am rather fond of making messes. it means you are living.

  5. Love the visual aspect of this poem and it was an enjoyable read. To pray and play are importants steps to happiness (in my book).

  6. Ha! I just wrote and posted mine which is called The Next Step. Glad I didnt read yours first or I would have had to think of something else:) Your poem makes me aware of how difficult traversing steps - and they are everywhere! - is for people in wheelchairs. Good one!

  7. Nicely done, well-presented! I liked your photos and the visual form of the poem.

  8. The feet look so painful! Ramps can be a very good thing!

  9. Rae, I thought the feet looked fun--love them in fact--enjoyed your stair stepping form too :-)
