Sheer Joy by Joanne Faries
Tiny hand plucked the bright yellow flower
love overwhelmed him
sturdy legs churned
fleet feet pitter pattered up the walk
gift for his favorite person
mom's hand outstretched
This is a friend's grandson, and her daughter posted the pic on Facebook. It just made me smile. The energy, the joy, the love. I gathered dandelions by the boatload as a kid, and mom had a dixie cup ready - filled with water for the shortest stems ever.
Happy Spring Forward everyone. I hope you have a good week.
