J ~ Joe


Did you ever ask the sun just why

you look too long he'll make you cry?

Or when the rain falls on the ground

it makes a pitter-patter sound?

Or how about a waterfall

does water really fall at all?

And why do stars just shine at night

and how do bugs get filled with light?

So many things I want to know

can you tell me uncle Joe?

I cannot catch the rainbows tail

even when I run I fail.

"Hold on now feller, sit down here"

Then Uncle Joe tugged on my ear.

"When I was just a lil' toad

I walked a long and dusty road

out back of old man Withers place"

I watched the lines scrunch on his face

it didn't matter what he'd say

I'd listen to him anyway

Ya see he's just my Uncle Joe

the greatest man you'll ever know

I like to listen to him talk

and stand beside him as we walk

it doesn't matter where we go

I just like... my Uncle Joe.

  7. Faces make people interesting don't they. The more expressive, lined, and experiences, the more I want to talk to them.

    Great job with sensory words. I read it 3 times.

    1. They are derived from the years behind them. When we were young, my father used to tell us, "If you keep making that face it will stick," and we just thought he was joking around (and maybe he was), but the reality of it all is that we do wear the lines of the faces we have made later in life.

      Thank you for the grand compliment Lance, 3 times means there was something you wanted to see in it.

  8. Uncle Joe is the flow of this poem!
