[using my favorite model - my granddaughter]
I watch pockets of rainbow colors
cresting over the sea
my mind drifts in the clutches
of a wind unmoving and quiet
as I glide smoothly on this tapestry
performing life as if on stage.
It is a ticklish dance, playing out chaos
unmindful of its insane hubris
I don't have to decide at each crisis
which path, which fight to take on
one step at a time, one leap of faith
is all I need to do.
