#AwakeAugust – small stones in August August 1st


Small boy, fist held tight

Secretively he protects

The jewels he holds closely

They sleep under his pillow

They are part of who he is

Possessive, compulsive

Only three years old.

    lol. This makes me laugh. Everything a 3 year old owns are his/her “jewels”. And if you attempt to take them? … no, just no. 🙂 Great poem!
