Sleepy Blue Flower

Written for our thirteen year old daughter, Thea Grace, on the occasion of her Christmas Poison Ivy.

Dec 24, 2002

Sleepless child,
Clenching fingers
   in the night.

Saddened child,
Turning frantically
   against the pain.

Can you see the field
   outside your window?

Its tall grass
   is being tickled
   by the smile of the moon.

The moon smiles on nights like this
When the sleepy blue flower
   tries to stay up late.

Look! Breathe softly...

The sleepy blue flower
   is waving all six of its
   gold trimmed petals.

It's yawning shyly,
   "Are you trying to
   stay up late too?"

The moon likes to humor
   the sleepy blue flower,
But knows how very sleepy
   flowers can get
   So late at night.

Look! Breathe softly...

The grass has made
   a soft bed.
The sleepy blue flower
   is fast asleep.

Dreaming of its friend
   in the room above.

Look... Breathe softly...
   The moon is smiling.
