perfect toes

DSC_9446
run until you can’t pretend anymore
until your imagination explodes
on these blades of grass
the in between your perfect toes

sit on my lap and let me give you
a thousand kisses
I’ll make a thousand wishes-
one on your forehead- I wish shelter from thoughts
one on your elbow-I wish the pain of tomorrows away
one on your cheek-I wish you assurance in your beauty
one on your little hand- I wish innocence you always can find

let me run with you again and again
let me fill my day with the simpleness
the pure joy-
of following your little footsteps

pedaling

blue cotton dress
blowing off my sticky knees
I pedal as fast as I can
to clear my mind of clutter-
no certain direction
no need to be anywhere
just gliding to the sounds of silence
my hair tangling in gusts of wind
my tires creating rhythm
the hot pavement-my map
house lights and stars
light my way-light my eyes
no clocks to block my view
the moon tells me to keep going
safely shining through this dark night
calming the patterns of thoughts
that tempt me to lose my focus
I’m smiling at letting it go
this is my night song-
my way to come down-
back to my house I fly
through the thick air
ready to fall into sleep
I’m breathing deep again
just a girl free from the
meaningless monotony
let me tell you about
the therapy
an old-beat-up
over-used
rusty red
bicycle
can bring
