Poetry Month, Day 15 - Neighbor

Today's word, Neighbor, was suggested by an old (and missed) neighbor, Matt!  Thanks, Matt! 


There's more to being neighbors
than simply doing favors.

Or borrowing a power tool
and driving carpool to the school.

There's going camping with the boys,
Having laughs and sharing toys.

Keeping secrets, telling jokes,
stretching out beneath the oaks.

Shopping at your favorite stores,
Trading keys to your front doors.
Watching movies, eating meals,
sharing how you really feel.

Pulling weeds and planting flowers
Hanging in the yard for hours.

Hosting parties on the block,
Walk right in - no need to knock!

Being neighbors means much more
Than living in the house next door!
