A Girl’s Book

I have a worn book in my basket

that I carry always at my side.

A book that takes a girl to the stars,

to the city streets, to a crossroads.

A girl in pink and blue with lightening in her eye

with fond memories and tall tales

crowding her overheated mind.

A wild beyond

meets a mom’s structured day, tight schedule —

a place she dreams her kids will go.

She puts her words on paper,

on air, online,

and when that last page turns

her curious brain soaks it all in,

exhausted but still here.
