Me: "Who has the best seat in the house, me or daddy?"

Adam: "Well, Daddy's is nice, but yours is best. Your's is squishier."

Reflections and Echos

He didn't know it

(she, not quite a shadow, 
because a shadow must follow)

He didn't know how
 she walked along
 beside him, 
behind him,
 all the while watching

from the corners of her dazzling blue eyes.
Eyes that take it all in,
and keep it somewhere deep

where it will grow like a vine
and leaf out,
maybe years from now,
through little windows 
of personality
of moral fiber
of style and attitude and humor.

A reflection in his steady pond,
a sapling under his sturdy branch,
an echo in his canyon.

If I listen
 I think I can 
already hear her.

(A visit to artist's studios during Art at the Source in Sonoma County)
