ducklings swimming
with their mother
in the brook –
my childhood memories
return like ripples

  low tide
the child tiptoes
tongue in teeth
over hills of oyster shells
afraid to break even one

    swimming gala
my daughter starts paddling
the wrong way...
I cheer her on
regardless

this heart
done up in knots
by a little girl
who can't even tie
her own shoes

  if I were
to pluck a star from the sky
each time you make me smile
I would hold
the Milky Way in my hands
