            REBECCA JAYNE

(2 yrs of
age)

 

Observing the precarious

existence

of household plants

 

swiftly followed by

the sideways glance

at buttered scones –

 

aroused by appetites

of taste and touch and sight –

 

she reaches out to clutch

the flower, trembling

with anticipation of the feel

 

or knowledge of restraining hands.

 

Seeking adulation

with every tentative step –

the pleasure of each stretch

 

a fleeting reminiscence

of the unencumbered state

of birthday grace.
