You can’t see it but it’s there #atozchallenge #poetry

Dear Africa:

Today I write a poem for the children I hope to meet. I know already that I will learn so much more from them than I can ever teach.

There’s a place you can only find

hold a small hand jump into a child’s mind

no magic needed for a child has more

close your eyes see what’s in store

the imagination as broad and wide

as celestial heavens the ocean’s tide

draw an “x” in the smallest place

look now where the fingers trace

its a tiny place where treasure hides

you never know just what you’ll find

crouch low in the dust forgotten corner

open your mind to a world full of color

fingers
