Today [a poem]

By Carmen McKnight | Featured Contributor

Laughing. Teasing. Moment ceasing.

Staring. Caring. Sometimes failing.

Reading. Greeting. Children feeding.

Dying. Crying. Facebook lying.

Shower. Flour. Stomach growl.

Smelling. Yelling. Lawnchair pairing.

Voting. Pouring. Weakness showing.

Racking. Shaking. Muffin backing.

Child art hanging. Some lovemaking.

Sun. Fun. Dragging on.

Pruning. Fooling. Stomach fueling.

Barking. Stacking. Slowly laughing.

Writing. Sweeping. Some stew making.

Healing. Peeling. Lovely feeling.
