Poetry Prompts - Poets on the Page

The first instrument I ever played I believe was the recorder in school. There might have been other instruments when I was in Kindergarten but I really don't remember. In the fifth grade I moved up to drums, I loved playing the drums. In Junior High I played the flute, I wasn't ever really good at it but I enjoyed it.

When I was a young adult I began playing around with hand drums, absolutely love them. Now I play the Native American flute and my granddaughters often ask me to play for them at bedtime.
