reading,
rooted in mind,
not tasting ripe berries,
the oozing summer scent,
window open,
waiting

small granddaughter
visits Grandma with Dad,
Mom, brother and sisters
in soccer play-offs
back home.

My Example Poem
Growing
Fall down
consider tears–
crawl to where grandpa sits
grab onto grandpa’s leg
grin like a fox–
stand up
