whispering wonder

The whispering wonder
of your so eager smile
completely dazzles
the old worn soul of me.

I never knew such truth
could dwell in eyes
so small yet tremendous,
innocently reflecting stars.

For every dark moment
the angry cracking joints
of this cantankerous fool
grumble for needed peace,

there are a thousand more
when my spirit soars
at the merest sight of your
honestly shining face.

– for my daughter, Leona Mae Ellington

      • Not scary just fast – I wish you could save memories in a Rolodex and go visit them as you pleased ❤️

        I always remember thinking “please freeze this moment” unfortunately I do not possess that power lol … I just always wished for it

        Time in a bottle ya know?
