For My Daughters

On this day can I offer some words
For my daughters? My starry-eyed dreamers
With patterns unknown who waltz with the moon
Disbursing light to the dim of black night
Until daylight destructs their tiptoe dance
My summertime babes well-acquainted with sleep
Makes me dare to say something stupendous:
Let us sleep, Let us sleep, Leave our hearts
In our chests. Leave our soft eyelids closed
They are innocent rose pearls. Keep the sheets
From the day; it’s a blue rungless sky
Don’t wake us to climb, we’ll rise when we rise
Upended from bed ~ a new pretty dream
We can make ourselves a new pretty dream

  1. Ah if only we could arise in our own time,
    not alarmed in time to get where we have to go.
    i get the feel of butterflies there in the end,
    of a time in the cocoon, of becoming butterflies
    if we are given the time.
