…….Through Thick And Thin

(the poem is about my granddaughter,
                  now almost 3.) 

I called her scratchings spider webs,
The first one brought to me.
She calls her scratchings spider webs,
Now drawn deliberately. 

Sometimes I am her audience;
I clap and lavish praise
For song or dance or toddler art.
I’m sunshine on her days. 

Sometimes we partner in the scratch;
I draw the spider in.
And by web-weaving we are bound,
One thick in years, one thin. 

I water well this growing plant,
Protect from sun and storm.
I’m now remaining young at heart
With her, my magic charm.

Guard Dog, Resting

 

Eyes? Okay.

But look at the ears –

Half alert.

To The Horizon

 

A city –

Crowded: men, buildings –

An ocean.

Life’s Stage

 

Curtain closed,

The audience waits

For a birth.
