innocently play with toys

we know boys will be boys

mama is close as you play

this bright and sunny day

sounds of joy are yours

surprise fills your little life

fills suddenly with strife

officers invade your street

with sure intent to beat

violence on their minds

you are someone’s cared for child

not some animal wild

please play, our child with all glee

birthright is to be free

matters not your hue

Inspiration for the theme of compassion:

underneath the bridge

warming their hands at a fire basket
those … lost and alone

Georgia Bastet started the rhyming choku and I am always inspired by her and Chev. Thank you!

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.
