born inside a wishing well
you stumbled living
laughing blondly,
blue and angry eyes
which blink with
innocent disguise
madly blaming
youth is caring
better shared than not
it wasn't. although
friend or quiet relative
a wrong is righted
oversighted
grown and older, shy
is better anyway
the day arrives
when words contrived
are meaningless, and
timid thoughtful
speeches blessed.
strength is found in
guiltless wishing;
after-tears which
mark the years and
spark wandering into
arriving.
where?
atop the cloud you
call your own
the cloud that's home.
