Like the dawn
gently unhides all,
All the colors
of the rainbow
as I crystallize
over my daughter’s
It enchants me.
Between my fingers-
your little chubby fingers
You no longer
Need to hold my hand,
You are on your way,
Brimming with pre-teen enthusiasm
And a newfound confidence.
So tip toe
So pink, so yellow,
As your fingers
slip into mine
Hold me firm.
Mothering is like
Moment to moment,
Poem after poem,
Fresh and juicy,
Sweet and tangy.
