a typewriter poem, written for a mother and daughter



with a spring in my step you help me to bloom

with a skip of my heart you dispel all the gloom

beautiful blossoms

stunning specimens

growth glorious growth

you are my garden        my wildflower        my budding buddy

together we lean into the sun

send roots shooting down

sturdy          strong       yet subtle, sublime

all the time I spend with you

helps me to bloom

we become more         embedded and intertwined

nothing with stop us from shining

dig deep         keep blooming

and if you ever sway in the wind

I’ll be there to support you

stalk of my stalk

let me walk with you always

and may we forever bloom
