Even Then She Knew

“I no monkey! I balloon!”
Sage Magdelene, age two

My sweet monkey.
My orange balloon.
She blazes with summer
Wind and yellow truth.
Her red wings roar.

  1. Love it all. Seems joyful, jubilant and yet carries the sorrowful lament of watching children fly from us. (Thankfully mine are nowhere near nest fleeing age, yet.) This also paints a wonderful image of her spirit and passion.

      Thanks, Jen. I’m so proud of her! She’s off to pursue firefighting academy in Seattle very soon. Sigh.
