Quenby 1975

watercolor of Quenby by Jeanne

stepping back from chaos

looking up with awe

innocence sees parent twinkle in the eye

against the stars

the glow of the moon

and smells the tribe its own

breathing in its sweetness

expelling the sigh of contentment

life’s pink cheek

its tender skin…
