The Questioner

The moon fills from the top Each day gets lighter, growing How it hold the light and it not run out The bottom just pouring Seeing the moon in day Up in the clear sky blue Makes mind search for way to express Ones' questions about you Momma always said that I could ask more questions Than Philadelphia lawyer Her.....abstentions (My mother always said that I asked too many questions ...Very inquistive child was I....Still wonder.....The word abstentions means do.)

I love the way your poem could move inits own circle just as the moon cycles... So clever to think of it in the same poetry as your mother's ideals for you as if you await her dreams coming true with each moon that passes.... A stroke of brilliance indeed! Thanks for your comments too, delighted. Kindest thoughts, Anna-Marie.

a very nice write. Well worded, flows real nice. It's funny because my aunt always told me that I would become a Philadelphia lawyer. We learn by asking question. Thank you for reading my poem and for your comment.
