At night, in bed

we whisper of our daughter:

“She’s an artist…”

“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.

Is all of this real?

I wonder as I slowly

wake to midnight stars
