World Map

My first world map,
in a coloring book
open to imagination

at national lines,
no soldiers or border guards,
just Crayolas lined up on the table

while other children worldwide
looked for their country
and favorite color

innocent of differences
beyond crayon,
only sensing we could play together
if we met someday.



From a collection  of poetry called Maps, appearing at this time only here.

A response to: earth.

Joining those writing a poem a day during NaPoWriMo and National Poetry Writing Month.

    • Good to hear from you again. Thank you for sharing your impression. Glad you mentioned the closing lines, as the ending is always a concern. I have been chipping away at my “Maps” series for a long time.
