    Poem Commentary

    Love’s snapshot of carnal joy.



    Amazing wonderful you

     carving your way through the murky world

    stamping your cause and place

    like so many unchartered  starts, easily unfurled 

    Inspiring you are, when you smile and shrug

    Your small hands outstretched and unknowing

    A kick and a toss and a gentle hug

    blended thoughts and feelings showing 

    A Blessing, a bonus, a stroke of love

    A joyous gift from up above

    Very well composed and expressed, for it worked its magic - I felt it and then was taken back in time through memories recalling such innocence when my 15 year old daughter was running around calling "here duck duck"... 10 for feeling



    Thanks for sharing that analogy and for reading my words.

    To have great poets there must be great audiences too.
