Spiral Patterns

Spiral Patterns

He made these spiral patterns all the time;
He’d draw and color carefully each one.
While other kids would run and laugh and shriek,
He never joined them in their childish fun

Meticulously drawn and colored in
Were spiral patterns: purple, blue and green —
As page upon new page was drawn and saved,
Like waves upon some beach he’d never seen

His parents to the doctors went at last;
So worried with their son’s obsessive ways –
With him, it’s spiral patterns on a page:
That’s what he does for hours, or, for days —

The doctor looked into the child’s head,
And said: This type of thing, how well I know it.
In all these spiral patterns, nothing strange —
It’s only love
And this boy’s way
To show it
