Mia’s First Rainbow

Hours are ours to fill as we choose
Or lose.
How long does the sun take to rise
Above the sea – red golfball
On an instant’s tee?
Does a rainbow last an hour?|
Or outlast a shower?
Mia stands transfixed at the open door;
“Pink – yellow – top of sky”.
first small poem from childish eye.
Hours are ours to muse or lose.

Way to Goad

One for you, one for me –
Sam and Mia, four and three
Picking strawberries for tea
But eating them immediately.

Finally the last one showed;
Mia picked it, waved it, crowed
Going, going, going, goed!
Minxes sure know how to goad.
