I think that children

who must discern cause and effect

within the structure of daily activity

especially at home -

whose young minds must hone survival skills

to sustain dignity intact -

often become poets

possessing practised powers

of acute observation

and able to sort details relative to the whole

with calculating minds

geared to steer perception to a desired end.

Love the subject, along with that of your previous post..it is a wonder to behold how minds grow. As Laura hints, you must be willing to truly look within.

we need more poets Cynthia that's for sure.

I'm reminded a little of my own comments on Jan Oskar Hansen's recent poem Almost a Killer.
