Silence poem

Updated on August 9, 2014

A Godmom can only laugh

Silence

Is never portentous

Of lucky tidings


A mother knows

Silence

Is the time

When the commode

Eats a 3-roll meal


It’s the time

Walls get clothed in paint

And

Toddlers get unclothed,

Naked on tricycles


Or the moment

I hear the words

“Godmama, these giant band-aids

float really good!”

And discover an armada

Of panty liners floating in

my bathroom sink.

      Why what? Why did I write this? Why did I post this?

      I wrote this because I wanted to remember a funny moment in my life with my godson. I wrote it in poetry form as I was in a writing workshop and wanted to explore non-rhyming, free style poetry.

      I posted it because I want to share my writing: the sweet stuff, the political stuff, the educational stuff- good, bad, or ugly as the case may be.....
