Good writing, with a strong point and with life oozing out.

Little Flowers

April 19, 2012

the impromptu dance party concludes supper
celebrants gathered in the middle of the kitchen
big girl interpreting the life cycle of Flowers
fluttering flutes filling the room with petals
middle girl following her lead, rising from the floor
though too silly not to jump and laugh and squeal
little girl spinning circles on feet uncertain
dimpled cheeks rosy from the effort
Mom and Dad trying to keep up
soaking it all in while stealing glances
to wonder at what their love has wrought
then cuing the thumping crescendo
conjuring sleep with some Somnambulist
“simply being loved, loved, loved
is more than enough”
