Spiders in the sky
chasing the wind on silk strings
become lost in trees.

My daughter is obsessed with the moon. Every time she’s outside no matter if the moon is up or not, she insists on finding it. I’ve been taking photos of the moon for her, and she loves them! Thought I’d share a few here. The first two are of the super moon from the third.

Lake Effect Snow

A substantial amount

the weatherman warned

get those shovels ready

but only a dusting covered the step

and not even the grass was wet.

You have hiccups
and you kicked out of excitement
when you heard my voice singing to your sister–
when you heard Dada over speaker phone–
when your sister laughed at her own joke.
You love us
and I know you know we love you.
You love God
for you danced when I read from Scripture.
You are a person.
You are my child.
You are my baby
and I love you more than anything.

Summer Dream

This warm light coming through the windows
reminds me of those summer days
when we used to run through fields of golden wheat
with yellow daisies clutched in our small fists
and we would collapse below that bright blue sky
and bask in the scorching sunlight filtering through the trees.

Bunny’s Moon

She watches and waits
for the moon every time
she steps foot outside.
But tonight she can’t
find her luminous friend
So, tonight I’ll bring
you the moon, my Bunny girl,
tonight I’ll bring you the moon.
