Sweet Daddy

Daddy, I miss you and who you were

and how together we’d family surf.

You taught me to love the taste of candy

and to get chocolate stars was dandy.

A quarter at the candy store

would take me hours to spend for sure.

When days were long, and thoughts were few

that bag of candy would get me through.

Ice cream was our best shared treat

and you would buy it for the kids on our street.

They’d gather ‘round for ice cream cones

and with you as their surrogate, they felt at home.

There you have it! That is my Six Sentence Story to the prompt word “quarter.”

Butterfly Love

Watercolor by Lisa Tomey

Butterfly Love

Fluttering about fairy gardens,
vivid colors and purposeful lives,
butterflies know their calling.

Eat until they are filled and full,
build a protective crysalis,
until they emerge as butterflies.

An artist and storyteller
by the name of Eric Carle
brought a hungry caterpillar
into the homes of many families.
School teachers brought the story
into classrooms and inspired children.

That’s what happens when a seed is planted
in a book, in art, in voice—

It lasts forever in the artfulness, in the
Imaginations of humankind.

Butterflies live on when the world
keeps feeding them
with fairy gardens, simple garden paths,
massive wildflower fields,
all this by caring for the lands.

Help butterflies live
whatever length of time they can
as they are called to be,
as we are called to support.
