The smooth face of a butter-cream surf-sanded shell
The marvelous smooth pre-kissed cheek of a grandchild
The starfish shaped prints in the sand after flight of a watchful great heron
The tiny hand print in sand of an elated child who came later
The familiar hand-hold of your husband at the end of the movie before you enter the car
The rose petaled floor of your son's well-planned engagement evening*
The feathery drift of dozens of yellow butterflies against a blue sky
The last smell of a sunset peach rose before the first petal fall
The earthy taste of a sun-kissed tomato
The icy sip of a glass of something cold and bubbly
The scattered song of a teenage titmouse dancing on the roof
The giggle of a toddler dancing in the grass
The jazzy rhythm of bold cicadas hidden from view
The gentle burr of a hummingbird at your back
The magical sparkle of an ever higher climbing fairy flight of fireflies
against the black silhouette of a tree before the blush of the moon.
#Perhaps a little sweet gooey like too much pink cotton candy at the fair...but it is honest, honestly.
