Many moons…



Our travels are to Europe,

The Caribbean,

Thailand, Australia,

many miles, many airports,

time changes and jet lags.

Once upon a time

we climbed mountains

atop rocks and lilacs

in the backyard.

We sunk barefoot into sand

silky and hot

used to make mortar

for cinder blocks,

went swinging


to the elm branches,

screamed and laughed

and reached for the sky.

We crouched

low beside the driveway bushes

where miniature plastic people


and floated ants on

glossy green leaves

across puddles,



by tiny human hand

and fine reach

of infinite imaginations

that could truly take us
