day 96

Happy is the one who listens
         to me,
   watching daily at my
         gates,
   waiting beside my doors.  Proverbs 8:34

i could sit
      on the porch
                 steps,
   eager for foolishness
   to finish breakfast and
         come out to
               play tag, or
i could curl
      up in your lap,
   as you read
   me stories of
         hope
         and
         grace.
