A Child’s Questions

Written for:  Go Dog Go Cafe - Tuesday Writing Prompt

"Use the words, 'for reasons they don't understand' in a poem."

But, where are we going?

Why do we have to leave?

I won't see my friends anymore.

How come we don't have a house now?

Mothers explained as best as they could,
but knew the children were leaving
for reasons they don't understand.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
