"Awakenings"

Been awhile.  Poetry anyone?

 

"Awakenings"

 

a life not yet focused

only the hunger for sweets

and new experience are clear

yet every waking morning

this little nose sniffs out

all that is good in the world

 

a world that wants nothing more

than the sweet for this child

who rests their heart

at the steps of neighbor

with the family pet

the ride to school

the father

 

a thirst for books story imagination

lie dormant inside

waiting for that spark of awakening

to be thrust upon them

from hands that have sifted

through the same mire

Good to hear from you again my friend.  I was thinking of a family member who grew up without a father and whammo' poem.  It doesn't happen this way that often but when it does it's a joy.  Thanks again................peace!
