five-year old freedom.

22 Apr

early summer morning. a distant sun teases the cool air, promising its heat. i wake eager, and comforted by the sound of life. the birds, cars on the street, my mother – somewhere in the house cleaning or cooking, or both (probably).

giddy and greedy, my breath grabs at the wind rushing through my room. the scent of flowers and freshly cut grass dance on the air, chilled by the night’s wet summer dreams. if this season had an eau de toilette, it would be called “morning dew.”

i am excited about life. and the new chapter book i haven’t finished yet – i cannot wait to travel where i may never go.

(i was so free when i was five.)
