There is nothing more lovely

Than riding in pair

Over waves

Under skies

Skimming high

Fins in air.

“Pink tree!” she delighted

Toddled quickly, pulled my hand

“Park pretty!” she exclaimed

“Come fast! Come fast!”

“Take picture?” she requested

And of course, I obliged.

She twirls this way and back again

Jingling beads fit for a reign

Tuto flying

Boas, too.

Joyfully bedizened

To wazoo.

There it is

The first one,

Breaking through

Your sore gum.

Yet you smile

Wide and true:

Budding tooth

New to you.

He’s got all the right moves

He knows where the horn blows

He can tell you exactly

Where this big truck goes

He is one with the levers

Will press buttons with glee

He’s proficient in steering

It is quite plain to see.

Flowers for Today

Spring flowers AmitaiAsif

As fields of flowers bloom

And the breath catches

At the extravagance,

Let joy leap

As your soul watches

Spring fairies’ flitting elegance.

 

 

For Cee’s Flower of The Day

Let Laughter

Let laughter

Ripple through you

Like ribbons

Of joy.

Let it fill you

With mirth.

Let it buoy you

Aloft

When the world

Tilts ahoy.

Glint and Shine

May the light

Spark the day

Glinting awe

On its way.

May the waves

Hug the sand

As your heart

Understands.

It’s a Zoo!

“It’s a zoo over there!”

She exclaimed. Out of breath.

Cheeks still red from the stairs

And the cold evening air.

“It’s a zoo in the store.

It’s a zoo in the park.

It’s a zoo … at the zoo,”

Her smile grew.

She cracked up.

Couldn’t stop.

Her delight

Only matched

By the first time she ‘got’

“Slipped my mind” meant forgot.
