to be seven years old



i remember when i was seven years old
all the world held possibility
cinnamon, chocolate, maple,
glazed, sugar, so many choices


now i'm all grown up
i get to watch Claire choose
the world is her oyster
a bite of each
a life filled with possibility

Seven. Oh, such a magical number. I think God gives us children to teach us appreciation. I think he gives Grandchildren to let people be young again.
