ice cold water, green plants in the window, fireworks behind eyelids, stories into the night,
whispers in the dark. ghosts. mysteries and magic, imagined gardens. fairies. never letting go.
fresh raspberries and watermelon, bunnies. books on rainy days, silly movies. photographs.
pearls in teacups and candles on windowsill. crispy white paper and colored pencils.
pressed flowers. music. dancing naked and morning light, card games and trivia. ice cream.
and laughter, and pleasure, and sunny days and rainy days, and songs sang into the dark of night,
under covers and stars.
