At night, in bed

we whisper of our daughter:

“She’s an artist…”

“Where was I when

you was a little girl?” daughter asks

and I wonder too.

.

When I tell her she

wasn’t born yet she cries –

“I was missing you!”

.

Four years ago in

the hospital, her tiny

feet peeling moist skin.

.

It was a journey

her to me and me to her,

both our destiny.

“Tell me a secret!”

daughter whispers after stories

and before sleeptime.

.

And I do. I tell

her about my young, young life

35 years ago.

.

Looking for shiny

coins in the street, feeling shy

in kindergarten…

.

“Tell me one more!” she

begs but no… no more talking….

now it’s time to dream.

blue ice cream drips as if we

I forgo fireworks —

my three-year old nephew asked

me to read him books

“How come your eyeballs

are cracked like that?” she asks me

after a long day.
