Sitting cross-legged
leaning back
the warmth of the day divine
Tickling scratches of
freshly mown grass
- never a blanket as softly made as this

Allergies notwithstanding

Just over yon
a race between
my brown-haired child
- and a particularly feisty cloud of dust
She, on her trike
…the weight of the world
precariously balanced on three wheels
flying at a toddler’s breakneck speed

She was winning…

I bear witness to this priceless treasure
of Love, in its truest – purest form
A smile never felt as good

Then ~

In a whirling flutter
of flying grass clippings and
half-spent flower petals
flops
Curiosity encased
in the form of a six year-old girl

This grown-up smile willingly
concedes victory
to the super nova beaming at my side
Rays of sunlight
spun
in gentle curls rest upon sweaty child brow
And she says:

“Mom?”

“Hmm?”

“Why does time fly?”

“That, dear…is the only way it could ever keep up with you.”
