6 October 2001--a memory

today, a five-year-old,
with da
ncing eyes
and d
ripping hair,
shed through puddles
the edge of the muddy world
and looked on her first rainbow,

Nearly nine years ago, but it seems like yesterday--the day Lizzy saw her first rainbow. Joy, Lizzy, and I had been playing with mud and sticks down by the river. Racing up the fields to get home, Lizzy stopped and looked up. Her mouth was wide open and she was laughing. "They're REAL!" she yelled. "I didn't know they were REAL!"

Happy Birthday, my beautiful teenage daughter--13 today. Wow!xoxoxo
