blue and brown
dots on one side
satin on the other
carried everywhere he goes.
Linus loves his blankie.

moving hands
along the satin side
fingers over thumb
all the way across
as he falls asleep.

he does so easily
brown eyes dozing
while on his belly
back rises and falls
as his hand moves along
the satin of his blankie...square.

That's my Linus

  1. I like the rhythm the repetition gives your poem. I'm sure most moms have blankie stories, but you have captured yours in such a sweet, peaceful way which is probably exactly how the blankie makes your "Linus" feel. Thanks for sharing!
