toddlers laughing in puddles,
a plethora of perfect circle giggles.
musical notes bursting into perfectly timed half-fireworks, meeting free-fall’s end for the first time,
song lit up by moving headlights, car horns singing their harmony.
cotton candy gumdrops waking up for the dawn,
a slow float and tumble off the potted plants in the window sill.
morning on a soft day,
a faint greeting with misty kisses and dew-drop hugs.
a quiet “I love you” from the earth that slipped in past the city.
