Algebraic P.O.W.

the Problem Of the Week
cultivates furrows on your brow,
and I ask if fuzzy logic tickles.
A toothy grin splits your serious
face and you laugh.

The years between us number
thirty, yet genetics has made you,
intellectually, near equal.
Laughter underlines the bond
we share. A moment,
a lifetime, a life-
line drawn,
from me to you. And suddenly,
I am the one whose brow
is furrowed. my Problem
Of the Week to capture
the essence of you.

About ninian-poetree

I live in a sitcom. No seriously. I share a century home with an Englishman and a cat named Sophie. Not living with us are my three sons and a step-daughter who visits every other year or so. I'm a mum, a writer, a teacher and an MUFC fanatic.
