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

Superb poem Mel. Fine rhymes throughout. Strong final line too - very memorable. Concluding lines in poems are often the most challenging to write. Best wishes. Brian
