Sun Leaf

julesatthecreekojai.png

soft cream cheeks

honey tangled hair

limbs growing longer each day

he feeds himself with a spoon

says words like “recognize”

and tells me I am a masterpiece

 

three and three quarters

time, vanished

hundreds of captured moments

photos and footage of a different boy

always altering, like a landscape

 

cobalt watering can in his hands

sun blessed bottom and bare feet

saturday morning

sun leaves, sun wood, sun face

 

My delight is bigger

than my body.
