NaPoWriMo #21

ode to being young

an oversized sweatshirt becomes
a playground–fun mornings
back to back.
big smiles are welcome mats
and seeking arms want
nothing more than to
embrace a body bigger than
the one they’re attached to;
for comfort–for safety.

a rough night is instantly
replaced with a morning
drenched in surprises
and covered with chocolate
chip pancakes–so much syrup,
no one says, “When!” to stop
its flow.

a day of outside fun turns
into weeks of delightful events.
all that’s missing is
the contract to sign to
do this over and over and
over again.

ad infinitum.
