further farther beyond

Further, Farther and Beyond            

bright eyes
lashes fluttering into mine
time to play
she says-- wake up
no, you cannot sleep
on puffy pillows
 we pretend to eat a feast
savory  and sweet
calorie free for me
eat it all and then
plastic fruit
knives, forks and spoons
dish up
colorful make believes
everything smells tasty
we’re on
and over everything
make it up
as we go along
I’m 72 she’s four
no matter
I can’t climb a tree nor run
together we go
further farther
and beyond

I love writing--It's my joy, my therapy--my confession. I'm a performer, dancer, yoga and meditation instructor, write a poetry column for Rafu Shimpo. Growth and love of life is a key to my happiness.
