in the calm moments between
day of church, fun, play, Awana
my son walked into the kitchen.
With arms finding my middle,
he looked up with blue eyes of crystal
Have I told you that?”
Suddenly I forgot
why I grounded him on Saturday.
With his arms around me and
blue crystals locked in my brown ambers,
all shone perfectly clear in my world.
I received the sweetest gift
a girl could be given.
