We'll be going out of town this weekend so I won't have a chance to write a new poem. This is the first one that popped into my head when I saw the prompt so figured I'd post it even though I wrote it two years ago just after my granddaughter was born.

The page is from an accordion book I made. I had my poetry writing students make one and I did it along with them. It had to have a theme and mine was all the things that make me smile.

Kylie Love
A fluff of dark feathers
resting in the cup
of my palm.
The top of your head
is a perfect vortex
and our love circles
around and around
spiraling into you.

A special book for a special child! I have no idea what an accordion book is but the picture is charming and the poem is touching.

You have a knack for saying so much with a few, perfectly chosen words.

Lovely poem to celebrate a "new" person!
