A Poem

A poem is a little girl 
	Helping Mommy with the dishes
		Or teaching her how to use
			A computer app
A little boy at play
	In his sandbox
		Or the games apps on his i-pad
A poem is 	
	Mommy kissing Dad
It’s the sun rising in the morning
	A harvest moon at night
A poem is twinkling stars
	Over motor cars
		On bustling highways
It’s city lights and
	Airplanes and satellites at night
		Aurora Borealis unexpected
A poem is rhyme without reason
	And deer out of season
It’s puppy dogs at play
	And swans in flight
It’s all of the good things in life
	And some of the bad
For a little boy it’s the moments
	Shared with Dad
A poem is a vast unending river
	Roaming quietly through the day
		And growing quiet in the dusk
As it gently threads its present
	To the past and a poem is 
You in the fullness of life
