I hear your thoughts through footprints

January 31, 2012

Slow and steady, mind wanders
imaginary friends and duties call
belly forward, head down
carefully stepping over pages of time

pitter-patter, pitter-patter
shorebirds running from the waves
hair bouncing on strawberry cheeks
as pages keep turning faster

feet dragging, knees give out
body slumps against the stairs
heavy eyelids don’t want to close
hunger for the finish line

I hear your tiny footprints telling stories
on your tiny tippy-toes
little girl, keep on dancing
sing your stories through your toes
