Transformation

If you haven’t visited Christine’s blog, you are missing so much!

A warm summer’s evening,
the kind of day when
bedtime forgets it’s name and
little ones refuse to tell.

You wore a denim shirt
tucked in, but not quite,
to your trendy knee length shorts
like a cool teenager.
You were chasing a balloon
with your big brother.

When did you stop being a baby?

Was it one night last week
while you were sleeping?
A mysterious unfolding,
a sudden beating of wings,
a flying off into the unknown,
into the boundless landscape of
your very own pure and precious ife.

      I knew you would like Christine’s work! She is amazing and a dear friend. Her latest book, Dancing in the Rain was launched recently with proceeds to Multiple Sclerosis Foundation.

  4. As always Lea, Christine’s poems are a delight to behold.
