I notice

The red rubber ball bounces out of bounds.

All players move up a square.

No one plays with the black kids.

How would I feel?

Reach into the past to

remember the future.

Where Is My Dad?

We both liked hiking in the forest.

Perhaps he decided to plant a tree for me

to climb when I get older.

6 Word Poem*

Dude, I’m not done yet…

*Editor’s note for 6 Word Poem – it’s supposed to be that way (the 5 words with one missing is part of the poem, as with my other punctuation, spacing and capitalization “mistakes” )
