shopping with my daughter

I’m celebrating National Poetry Month by writing and reading poetry, every day. My poetry project is grows out of a list of things that make me happy. I made this list on the 30th of March.

The twentieth idea on my list is shopping with my daughter.

my yesterday
she reached up for my hand
is her twenty years ago

so now
I hold on to what
you might think frivolous

the on the way to
the what do you think
the car ride home
the can you help me

that will become my yesterdays
