What I carry with me?
Secrets. Peppermints. The smell of rain.
What I remember?
Specks of ash on a warm baked egg.
What I know?
How many songs till bedtime.
What I forget?
The exact color of my grandmother’s eyes.
What I left behind?
Light on the river the morning you were born.
What I learned yesterday?
How to dance a jig barefoot, with bunions.
Where I’m going tomorrow?
With you, to a meadow of daffodils blooming like days.
