Windy beach, summer jests,
little girl dipping her toes in cold sand,
in shivered moments of water she froze.
Apple trees, bright leafy days,
gentle breeze, cat chased bird,
magic backyard witches’ shed,
mother’s angry words.
Ancient pirate’s treasure,
locked coins in a crumbling chest.
A little girl’s Barbie doll’s hair cut,
she severed its blonde-maned crest.
the wheel of life spins,
the sound of cherished comfort yearns,
years carve their spirals.
I wish you happiness,
and its endless returns
