home in Indy-an-a

Staring at the television set
watching some silly show
my mind wanders and…

I am at my daughter’s
home in Indy-an-a
watching my grandchild
play the pi-a-na
her brother on the bassoon

sis is impromptu dancing
dad massages the violin strings
as mom smiles tolerantly
at the family attempted musical

in honor of the grandpa

I am smiling happily
just to be with my family

~Milton Montague
