for my daughter.

+this gorgeous print is done by Cy Twombly

For a moment I sit in silence
thinking thoughtful thinkful thoughts
embracing charming swoonful dreams
and all the things that I want to be when I grow up.

You have my eyes
your fathers lips
and the perseverance of a lady bug 
looking for the color green

For a moment I think of you
about what you might be dreaming
if you have flowers or fairies 
invading your mind.

Maybe you have dancing butterflies
or eagles wings
silver spoons or budding spring
whatever it may be 

you will always be a princess to me.
