To Safiya From Mama


grow, child
eat sunshine
and apples

grow strong roots
walk the earth

taste butterfly sunlight
and ferns in the air

around the bend wishes
and soft breeze kisses

hide dirt happy toes
in frog dimple shadows

raspberry blissed fingertips
in bumblebee golden afternoons

belly laugh sky
leap so high

love life
live love
