a little boy



there is something precious about that look
innocent
expectation
wonder

God must really love us
to trust us with this kind of sweetness
precious
rare
real goodness

a child
a little child
shall lead them

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
