His Mother

Tonight I saw a picture drawn
by a nameless child
his watery eyes telling
what his mouth could not
describe.

Two stick arms,
two stick legs,
a singular-lined
body, a beautiful
round head –

the only part colored in
red.

*Day Four of the April 2011 PAD Challenge. Prompt: Write a poem about a type of person.
