the little boy
he has big brown eyes
and pockets in his jeans
that hold so many things
you never know
what will fall out
sometimes
it's just a rock
but the simple rock to us
is a treasure to him
it's been washed
polished
inspected for a fossil
and then stuffed back into his pocket
along side the other treasures
like screws and tape measures
paper and crayons
pennies and dimes
leaves and pebbles
all the things
that the little boy needs
because he sees the simple
he sees more than anyone
for he is still young
he can still see
while we
the older people
with empty pockets
are blind

  5. Brothers and pockets... I know about that too. :) You're right though; they have such an imagination and appreciation for the things we don't even notice. xx

    1. EEP you too?!? Literally, every night I wait like 2 minutes while he empties each pocket, and then randomly, I get this look of panic from him as he cries "JULIA I LEFT SOMETHING IN MY POCKET AND THEN PUT IT IN THE DIRTY LAUNDRY." so that's what inspired me..cuz honestly, I don't pick up enough rocks off our dirt road..
