Poetry Train: Comma

Comma

Life’s paragraphs
build up
one after another

with the constant
patter of computer
keys typing

word after word
until pages
fill up and turn

and we never
stop to catch
our breath.

Then you called
with the news
of a second grandchild

on the way,
just a comma,
now, but enough

to make us pause
and think about
the future

and smile.

The start of a fresh set of paragraphs, and each accompanied by a smile.
