    (for Brother Poet 1poetsought)

    children in my yard
    catch fireflies in a jar
    there's music somewhere


    ---------------------------------------

    father has his son
    hoisted high on his shoulders
    daughter rides his leg

    ----------------------------------------

    she comes home from work
    the children asleep in bed
    candles on the ledge

    ----------------------------------------

    yes, you are a king
    elevated and conscience
    beautiful you are

    tributary mist...
    we flow graciously at sea
    passionately free
