Magic In The Backyard



by Kellie Elmore

Soft spoken eyes, infectious laughter,
her spirit so young, a dreamer, a doubter
On the dewy grass beneath the sun,
sun-kissed cheeks, dreams ready to run

Curly blond locks, sweet dimpling smile
A wonderland awaits in the mind of a child
For all that she sees, through innocent heart
A whimsical journey only she can take part

Pinks and purples illuminating her sky,
she looks to the heavens, lays back with a sigh
She takes up her journal and begins to pen
coloring the pages with what she puts in

Capturing the essence of all that she sees
The sweat on her neck now cooled by the breeze
The dew on the grass and sun in the sky
Just she and her pen and swatting at flies

She tells the pages a story that’s  hers
and makes her backyard magic with words
Painting fairies and princes from flowers and trees
Penning perfection with grass-stained knees
