Today, as I join with 50+ members of the write 31 days challenge group, I think on this word join and realize my thoughts could go in many different directions.
Merriam Webster gives me these definition of join.
As Transitive Verb:
- to bring or put together in order to form a unit
- to connect by a line
- to put or bring into close association or relationship
- to come into the company of
- to associate oneself with
- to enter into or engage in
Or as an intransitive verb
- To come into close association or relationship
- To become a member of a group
- To take part in a collective activity
- To Form an alliance
- To come together so as to be connected
- To form an alliance
Join can also be used as a noun but honestly that definition made no sense to me. 🙂

Warning, as I write this poem I have a tune running through my head. So I”m working with it to get rid of it as an ear worm.
Join, join, join

What can we do with the word join?
We can consider what join means
Defining it now, just as we please.
Today I chose to join a group of youth.
With six rabbits in tow, I joined then.
I helped them see,
To really look
Define what a rabbit is.
Wafer was mobbed by several kids
Parents joined in
To keep her safe.
“She’s a big girl”, the comments were.
Smiling I just set her loose.
The children followed this flemish cross
Joining in a game of tag.
Wafer hopped, and hopped some more.
She connected well, with the floor.
Eventually I saw her face
She saw the doors,
A chance to escape.
Quickly moving, I blocked her way.
Hands joining to lift away.
Once again her travel cage
Lid joined to the base again.
Sad childrens’ faces
As Wafer left
To go back home to
some peace and rest.
