My life is filled with fancy.

I confess my guilt,

Painting faces on rocks

And summoning angels from coffee filters.

My bare hands dabble in lacework

Tatted by the midday sun

As she flies her shuttle through branches

And leaves where my savvy cat lies napping

In the tall summer grass beneath an old oak.


The day my daughter's principal called,

Allie cried, suspended

For feeding a student hamster food.

I laughed and lamented

That life is not better recorded

Because I want to read every precious word.


The words carved in soil beneath my feet

And fingerpainted on the Mississippi

Who presses her river smell

Deep within our bones

While the seagulls squabble on shore.

It is only a moment more until I mourn

The passing of this one,

Before I have painted its face on a warm stone

Or taped coffee filter wings on its shoulders

To delight my friend who catnaps

In the garden of my deepest fancy.

Yep, she told him it was a cookie. She was sobbing into the phone when they called. All I could think of was how awesome life is that has such moments in it.



(The stuff was all veggie and non-harmful. The kid was fine, but the school did react properly since it wasn't human food and he might have been harmed.)

Beautiful, but poor Allie. We did so much worse as kids without an eyelid being batted. This poem made me cry a little, it truly is beautiful, thank you:)
