Round and Round #children #poetry #death


round and round

In the wink of an eye

a splash in the pond

a squint at the sky

and you’ll be gone

*

streaming tail of a kite

your first goodnight kiss

college degree you might

so many things you’ll miss

*

up down your merry-go round  ride

look not ahead

as you swim against the tide

trying to ignore the end

*

mix the water-color glass

muddied against the  world

some dreams will come to pass

life’s banners won’t  fully unfurl

***

There are children who are born with defective organs or who contract  incurable diseases.

The merry-go round ride for them is short but no less spirited.

St. Judes just one place where children can get help.

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. One of the many exciting things I've had the honor of doing is writing with an E. African team that is developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children (on all continents) who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.

    1. Ive had two close friends who needed heart transplants as teens – both died within two years. But their lives were so vibrant. As a nurse, I worked in the department with chronic school age children – painful to watch life shortened by illness.

  1. Children are innocent beings and it’s amazing to see how they live their lives with this innocence and full heartedly. They are mini packs filled with life in them. They teach a great deal about life to us.
