 Nightsnow and Johnny

to gaze at the little boys
playing in the yard
peering through bushes
wandering in and out
finding tunnels
under branches
between fences

oh to be little again
the innocence of self discovery
in the forest of your own back yard
of throwing eggs
yellow oozing out

of simultaneous poops
out behind the shed
with the innocent declaration
“Don’t be mad a me”
as they stroll proudly in.

This picture breaks my heart, that smile on Danny John's face.  The puppy couldn't come with us when I married Larry.  Blending six kids had plenty of challenges.  We found her a good home.
