A Girl in a Daydream

Her eyes transfixed, 

A linen drape on a balcony, 

Muted tan color dancing in the wind. 

Billowing waves,

Leaving sections of light and shadow on the wooden floor. 


An arm reaches for the light, 

As fingers sway in the open air.


One foot moves in front of the other. 

Straight Line. 

As naked tips of toes touch warm square, 

Sliding the rounded arch,

to the heel. 

Completely fitting into the light.  

She avoids the shadows, 

for fear it will swallow her whole. 

Graceful hopscotch. 

In this corner of the world,

A girl in a day dream.
