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.

Looking ahead, without looking back (too often)

Maria Michaela Poetry

Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before. - Edgar Allan Poe
