“On Her Way”

on her way
traveling air
times precise
fresh ocean air
water everywhere
pointless showers
fresh lush
purple, red, yellow, pink flowers
lizards… mostly curly tail
people bronzed
burnt instead of pale
snow bird girl
ready to take on the world
diverse in her new world
not from here
yet familiar with here
embarks to find herself
out here

Sat down to write and my daughter came to mind. I was thinking of our trip down to Florida when she started her freshman year when I was helping her move in. The first time she was going to be away for so long.  “Leaving the nest” and this is my own revelation on the aspect of baby girl growing up.

As Always…

Stay Positive!
